Why Magic Kingdom Closed Early Monday

4:30 is a pretty early closing time for the world's busiest theme park. But that's what happened at Walt Disney World Monday. Why?

They wanted to show some love to longtime employees.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Disney closed the park to the public so they could invite 4,500 staffers and a guest to enjoy a night at Magic Kingdom. A red carpet was put down on Main Street USA. There were buffets, a DJ, line dancing and even a unique fireworks show.

Everyone invited has worked for Disney for a decade.
