Evening Extra Magic Hours May Be Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

If you look at the calendar for Park Hours & Calendars page on Disney’s website, you will notice that there are no evening Extra Magic Hours on the calendar for Disney’s Hollywood Studios after February.  The morning Extra Magic Hours are there for months after February, but no evening hours.  This is causing many guests to speculate that evening Extra Magic Hours may be ending at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This isn’t a certain fact since there hasn’t been an announcement by Disney, but typically these schedules are published to the calendars at least a couple of months in advance.

Evening Extra Magic Hours are posted for other theme parks after February, so it does seem strange that they aren’t there for Disney’s Hollywood Studios unless it is intentional.  The reason for removing the evening hours, if we find that it is legitimate, could be related to all of the construction and changes going on at the park.  The evening hours could serve as prime time to move materials, work and keep the necessary pace for all of the additions and changes coming at the park.  Since so many things have already closed at the park, they may not feel the need to keep the park open that late and maybe attendance is down for Extra Magic Hours at the Studios.  We will keep you posted as we learn more and if this change gets confirmed.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
