Default Xmas party Times

I was snooping on Magic Guide park hours and noticed for the MVMCP, MK closes at 6 instead of 7p Is this new? Is it because of daylight savings time in winter time? I have never noticed a 6pm close?

I heard the are experimenting with that this year in order to try and get day guests out of the park earlier.

Yes this is new, but not really aimed at the time change. They are trying to clear the park faster for party guests to enjoy full amenities at 7 without the usual day guests still wandering around. It may also help with the staffing requirements needed to get people out of the park. The Magic Kingdom closing time is new this year for the Christmas party. I would suspect that party goers will receive a survey and then the same may occur next year with the halloween party too.
I would not be surprised if they slid the party guest arrival time from 4pm to 5pm.

I'd be surprised if they planned on that. There isn't much to gain from that and possibly more to lose in $$$$'s being spent in the park.

Have you ever seen the lineup of people at 4? I hope they don't change time to 5 for entry to get into park.
I also am glad they will be trying to "clear" the parks one hour earlier. It is not fun to experience families with small children being asked to leave because they did not purchase party tickets.
