Disney World Extends Select Resort Dining Hours for Labor Day Weekend!

As Disney World continues to make changes in the park, the parks are experiencing limited capacity and reduced hours.

On September 8th, each of the parks will experience shortened hours, even though a few restaurants will remain open after the daily closures for guests to dine. However, with Labor Day Weekend just around the corner, the hours are changing again so everyone has even longer to chill at some of their favorite dining locations!

For a short period of time, Disney World will be offering an extra hour at certain Disney resort restaurants during Labor Day Weekend. While the times will return to normal after September 4th though September 7th, there are still plenty of spots that guest will be able to wine and dine for an extra bit of time in the evening.

It’s been a blast seeing Mickey and our pals at the new form of character dining at Topolino’s Terrace in Disney’s Riviera Resort. The rooftop restaurant will be changing its hours on September 4th through September 6th to run 7:30AM to 11:15AM and 5PM to 10PM. Previously, the restaurant would stay open until 9PM.
