Temporary Fencing Added To Magic Kingdom Entrance Ahead of the Return of Fireworks


Disney has added some temporary fencing in front of the Magic Kingdom, which is leading many to ask “What is it for?”  Well we may have an answer.

From what we’ve heard, keep in mind this hasn’t been confirmed, it’s going to be used as “queuing for park hopping due to fireworks coming up.” Meaning that it will likely be set up an area for guests to wait if they want to Park Hop over to the Magic Kingdom for the fireworks.

They will likely be put there until they see if capacity levels drop enough to let them enter for the fireworks.

If it’s true, I’m not sure how long they will be used for. If it’s just for the fireworks in the first few days, or if this will last longer as people will want to hop over for for the “Happily Ever After” fireworks show.

The Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios seem to be the parks that run out of Park Pass availability first, so it makes sense that they might need a queueing area.

We should find out tomorrow if this is the case as the fireworks will resume on July 1st.
