  • Park Hours: The opening time for Magic Kingdom is usually 9:00 a.m. The park closing times vary, from as early as 6 p.m. on nights the park hosts seprately ticketed or private events, to as late as 10 p.m., 11 p.m., midnight or even 1 a.m. on particularly busy days of the year (like New Year's Eve).

Note: Only limited attractions will be open during Extra Magic Hours.


ATMs: Magic Kingdom has five ATM locations:

  • Main Entrance
  • City Hall
  • Adventureland Breezeway
  • Pinocchio Village Haus
  • Tomorrowland Light & Power Company (exit of Space Mountain) 

City Hall: Guest Relations is located in City Hall, immediately to the left as you enter Main Street.

Disney Dollars: Disney Dollars were discontinued by Disney on May 14, 2016. Most are now saved (or sold online) as collectables. They remain valid for cash transactions at face value, though you may want to check at a ticket booth or Guest Relations which park locations can accept them. Disney Gift Cards are accepted at all locations that accept credit cards in the park, but they cannot be used for Mobile Order dining in the My Disney Experience App. Disney Dining Gift Cards are accepted at Walt Disney World food locations but not merchandise locations that sell food incidentally (like bottled beverages and crispy treats); they also cannot be used for Mobile Order dining in the My Disney Experience App.

Equipment Rental: Strollers, manual wheelchairs, and Electric Convenience Vehicles (ECVs) can be rented just inside the park. Stroller replacements if you misplace yours in the park are available (with receipt and on an as available basis).

Strollers rent for $15 per day for a single and $31 for a double. Length of stay rentals are available for $13 and $27 per day.

In-park rentals do not allow you take strollers out of the park, but rather you must get a new one at each park. Your rental receipt will allow you to get a new rental the same day (supplies permitting) when you get to another park.

Manual wheelchairs rent for $12 per day or $10 per day for length of stay.

ECVs are $50 per day plus an additional $20 refundable deposit. ECVs cannot be removed from the destination where they were rented. No length of stay rental is available, but vehicles can be held if Guests leave and return to the same park on the same day. For park hopping guests or guests visiting Water Parks and Disney Springs, your receipt will allow you to pay only the single rental fee once per rental day (though the refundable deposit at Water Parks and Disney Springs is $100 rather than $20).

If you are renting a wheelchair or ECV, you may also want to stop by City Hall to request the Guidebook for Guests with Disabilities which will provide information on ride access and other issues.

For additional information on getting around the parks with wheelchairs and ECVs, see our Walt Disney World Mobility page.

For rental strollers that cost less than Disney's, and that you can use anywhere you go throughout your visit, check out MousePlanet partner Magic Strollers. Affiliated with Owner's Locker, Magic Strollers will deliver your single or double stroller to your resort before you arrive and pick it back up when you leave. Magic Strollers delivers to resorts throughout the Orlando area, not just to Walt Disney World. Visit their site and check them out for yourself, or order now!

First Aid and Baby Care: Both are located next to the Crystal Palace restaurant on Main Street.

Lockers: The only lockers at Magic Kingdom are located to the far right side of the entry plaza, after the park gates but before going under the Walt Disney World Railroad overpass.


As of January 2020, locker rental charges are:

  • Standard - $10
  • Large - $12
  • Jumbo - $15

Lockers may be paid for by credit card or cash (U.S. bills only but no more than $10 change provided) at a touch screen terminal.

Restrooms: There are at least 18 restroom locations around the park, including some inside restaurants. Many restroom locations also include a seprate companion restroom.

Kennel: Magic Kingdom (and all of the Walt Disney World parks) no longer has its own kennel facilities. Best Friends Pet Care is now operating a 50,000 square foot pet resort at 2510 Bonnet Creek Parkway in the Epcot resort area.

In additional to single day visit or overnight boarding for cats and dogs, the facility can also handle a certain number of other pets such as hamsters, birds, and pot-bellied pigs. It is not required that you be visiting the parks to kennel your animal in the facility although a discount is given to people staying at one of the on-property resorts.

Reservations are not required but are strongly recommended, especially during peak seasons. Hours vary but the center is generally open from an hour before that day's earliest park opening to an hour after the last park closes, so remember to take pet retrieval time into account when planning the end of your day.

Overnight boarding starts at $37 for dogs ($34 if a resort guest), $23 ($21) for cats, and other animas range from $12-$23 ($10-$21) depending on size. Full day kenneling of dogs is $27 for basic kenneling, cats are $15; less than six hours is $16 and $15 respectively.

For more information or reservations, call 1-877-493-9738 (877-4 WDW PETS) or visit their web site. See MousePlanet contributor Vance Cope's article (September 10, 2010) on the opening of Best Friends Pet Care.

Smoking: Smoking is no longer permitted in Disney Parks. Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the gates of the park (and those locations may be subject to change from time to time due to ongoing construction at the entrance of the park).
