NEWS: Disney World Extends Park Hours in Early March

It might be hard to believe, but we’re already half way through the month of February! And with February being a shorter month, that means March is right around the corner!

2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

If you’re heading to Disney World in early March, it looks like you’ll get a little bit of extra time in the theme parks!

Disney has frequently extended their park hours as certain weeks and dates draw near, and that seems to be exactly the case when it comes to the first week in March! From February 28th, 2021 through March 6th, 2021, each of the four parks has had their hours extended in either the morning or the evening.

Walt Disney World Entrance

Magic Kingdom, previously open that week from 9AM-6PM, will now be open one hour later, with daily hours that week of 9AM-7PM.

Haunted Mansion

EPCOT will also be closing one hour later the week of February 28th. The park previously had posted hours of 11AM-7PM, but will now be open from 11AM-8PM daily.

Japan Pavilion

Keep in mind that the Taste of EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival will kick off on March 3rd, so you’ll now have even more time to sample all of the festival goodies!

Butterfly Topiaries

Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the park will open one hour earlier than previously posted. The park’s hours used to be 10AM-7PM, but for the week of February 28th Hollywood Studios will now be open from 9AM-7PM.

Toy Story Land

Finally, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has slightly more variation in their extended hours. Previously, the park had posted hours of 9AM-5PM. Now, the park will be open from February 28th through March 5th from 8AM-5PM, and on Saturday, March 6th, the park will be open from 8AM-6PM.


Keep in mind that in all of these instances, Park Hopping will be available after 2PM each day, so plan accordingly! And be sure to follow along as we continue to closely monitor Disney World’s daily park hours.
