We arrive on May 4th and I notice that the crowd level on this day at MK jumped to Level 10 RED. I can’t see any events happening that would have caused this jump. I would think that maybe HS would have a large crowd for “may the 4th be with you” followers but wondering what the deal is with such a huge expected crowd at MK. Any info appreciated!
MK closes early on the 5th so crowds will be heavier on the surrounding days.
I see extended evening hours on May 4th.
There is a CM event on May 3rd, so the park closes early that day. In the past when this happened, the days before and after the CM event were a CL 10, and the day of the event was a CL 1. The presumption here is that those without Park Hoppers will end up choosing to go to a different park rather than MK because otherwise they miss out on the hours. The irony is, this creates a park with much lower crowds and makes waits extremely low.
Unfortunately, it means May 4th will be one of those CL 10 days.
When Cast Member Appreciation events were scheduled a while back (and cancelled due to weather) the days before/after those early closures were crazy.
Have they typically stopped park hopping to MK on those days?
They have only limited park hopping, for a few hours, on Oct. 1st.
Thanks for the info all. We arrive at the happiest place on earth mid-day on the 4th and hopefully will have some Genie help so we can enjoy ourselves for a few hours while we wait for our resort room to be ready. Not too worried about it but just couldn’t find any event happening that would cause the big spike. Guess I didn’t know what to search for!
