Disney’s Magic Kingdom Goes Dark, Offers ONE Attraction

If you had to pick just one Magic Kingdom attraction to experience, which one would you pick? 

Personally, I’d probably pick something like the Haunted Mansion or Space Mountain. Maybe even the Prince Charming Regal Carousel if I’m feeling adventurous. 

In any case, you could probably ask 25 Guests the same question and get 25 different answers. There’s just so much to do while visiting Magic Kingdom

The Most Magical Place On Earth Just Can’t Be Replicated…

Of all four Walt Disney World theme parks, Magic Kingdom is undoubtedly the biggest and baddest, with more annual visitors than Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT each year. 

After all, it’s the most essential Disney Park, with all the quintessential attractions. Attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, “it’s a small world,” Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, and Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress simply can’t be found in any other Disney World theme park. 

With so many attractions, though, you’d never, ever find yourself bored while visiting the Disney Park…unless every single attraction went down at once, which is precisely what happened.

At least, according to this super weird glitch on the My Disney Experience app.

Just One Attraction? What’s Going On In Disney’s Magic Kingdom?

According to the official Walt Disney World app, all attractions went dark last night, leaving nothing but a character meet-and-greet opportunity: the Seven Dwarfs In Storybook Circus at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. 

Of all the spookiest things to happen at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, every single attraction, save for one, going down is definitely the scariest.

Was This Nothing But a False Alarm?

Luckily, it was just a crazy glitch! Checking the official Walt Disney World app after refreshing the page will show a fully operational Magic Kingdom, complete with the listed wait times for each attraction. 

How and why did this glitch happen? We can’t say for sure. Maybe it had something to do with the transition from normal operating hours into special event hours. We’re just speculating; truthfully, we have no idea what caused this!
