In November, the ceremony usually beings at 6:30, but as it gets darker earlier, the ceremony will begin closer to 6:00. Since the Magic Kingdom closes early on certain nights in November and December for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, you'll encounter heavy crowds leaving the park after the ceremony. Instead of rushing out, take a few extra minutes to shop. You don't have to be out of the parks until 7:00 if you don't have a party ticket, so that gives you a little extra time to browse.
