The holiday season at Walt Disney World is always busy. Guests travel to Walt Disney World to experience the holiday magic found through Disney Park and Disney Resorts. Disney works hard to accommodate the crowds, and one of the ways they do so is by adjusting park hours. It has been discovered that Walt Disney World has once again extended park hours for the holiday season, giving guests even more time to celebrate the magical time of year in the parks.
For those guests who can stay up late, get ready to enjoy some late evenings at Magic Kingdom. From December 24 to 30, Magic Kingdom currently shows park hours from 8 a.m. to midnight.
This is a drastic change from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. posted hours. This will push early entry for Disney Resort guests to begin at 7:30 a.m. The extended hours will allow all guests to enjoy an additional four hours in the park.
Magic Kingdom isn’t the only Disney Park to give guests extra time. However, none are as drastic as Magic Kingdom’s. The park will open earlier than originally posted at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom will open at 8 a.m. on December 24. Then, on all days from December 25 to 30, the park will open at 8 a.m. and close an hour later than usual at 8 p.m. instead of 7 p.m.
From December 24 to 30, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will open a half-hour earlier than initially posted, opening at 8:30 a.m.
This extra time will give guests visiting during this magical time of year some additional time in the parks.
This is a good reminder that Walt Disney World is constantly adjusting hours. Double and triple-check the Walt Disney World Park hours so any adjustments don’t catch you off guard.
