Recently, Disney World released park hours through mid-April. Now, we can take a look at each of the daily park hours through May 1st, 2021!


Over at Magic Kingdom, the daily park hours are a continuation of what we’ve seen so far in the month of April.

Magic Kingdom

Through May 1st, the park will continue to be open from 9AM-6PM, with Park Hopping available after 2PM.


EPCOT’s daily park hours through May 1st are also a continuation of what their hours have been thus far in April. EPCOT’s hours will be from 11AM-7PM daily, with Park Hopping available after 2PM.


The park will be in the middle of the Taste of EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, so you should expect festival hours to reflect that of the park.


As we’ve seen so far in the month of April, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will continue its schedule of being open daily from 10AM-7PM, with Park Hopping available after 2PM.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

Keep in mind that if you want to ride Rise of the Resistance, you need to have Hollywood Studios be the first park you visit that day, since all Boarding Groups for the day are distributed before Park Hopping is allowed.


Finally, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is following the pattern of the other three parks with the same park hours as we’ve seen posted in the month of April.

Tree of Life

Through May 1st, Animal Kingdom will be open from 9AM-5PM daily.


If you’re looking for some late night activities to take part in after the parks close each day, head over to Disney Springs! As of this writing, Disney Springs’ hours are the only ones that vary depending on the day that you visit.

The shopping and dining district has posted hours through May 1st from 10AM-10PM Sunday through Thursday, and 10AM-11PM on Friday and Saturday.


Finally, Disney has also posted hours for Blizzard Beach through May 1st. The water park is set to reopen on March 7th.

As is the case throughout the month of April, Blizzard Beach will be open daily from 11AM-6PM.

Keep in mind that these operating hours are subject to change, and we have seen Disney extend hours at all four theme parks in the past, especially on weekends and around holidays. So be sure to keep checking back as we track Disney World park hours so you’re prepared ahead of your trip!
