Walt Disney World will see some extended hours this weekend!
Halloween treats and decorations are tempting Disney fans to take a visit to the theme parks. Disney Park Pass reservations are filling up quickly between September 26th-September 28th in all three categories. And earlier, we reported that Disney’s Animal Kingdom and EPCOT will have extended park hours on Friday, the 26th to accommodate the increased crowds. Now, all four theme parks will receive extended hours for the entire weekend!
Due to shortened park hours, the Magic Kingdom is typically open from 9AM to 6PM; Disney’s Hollywood Studios from 10AM to 7PM; EPCOT from 11AM to 7PM, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom from 9AM to 5PM. All four parks have been extended for at least one hour each this weekend!
Magic Kingdom hours were previously posted with a 6PM closing time. This weekend, the park will be open until 7PM.
