If you’re planning a Walt Disney World vacation for the summer, then you’re probably already thinking about which parks you want to visit and when.
Due to limited park capacity, Disney currently is requiring that guests purchase a valid park ticket and make a Park Pass Reservation prior to arriving at the park for the day. And, reservations have been filling up months in advance for some Disney Parks, so booking reservations well in advance is an important piece of the planning puzzle. So, to help you out, we’ve got an update on Disney park hours through early July!
A few weeks ago, Disney released park hours through late June, and now we’re getting a look at the next week — June 27th through July 3rd.
Magic Kingdom hours will change up a little bit leading into the 4th of July weekend, with the park open from 9AM to 9PM the last week of June…
…through the first week of July.
And, as usual, park hopping hours will begin at 2PM.
Over at EPCOT, park hours will remain pretty consistent from the weeks prior, with the park opening from 11AM to 9PM.
And, those hours will remain the same through the first few days of July.
These will be the last few days to soak in the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival, as it will end on July 5th. So, if you need more than just one day in EPCOT to enjoy all the eats, drinks, and activities, you can also plan to park hop there beginning after 2PM daily.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be shaving off an hour of park time compared to the week prior and will be open from 9AM to 7PM both at the end of June…
…and in early July. Keep in mind that reservations for this park tend to fill up months in advance during busy Disney seasons, so planning ahead and booking early will ensure you get to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and other new attractions in the park.
If you’re unable to get a park pass reservation, or just want more time in the park, you can also park hop to Disney’s Hollywood Studios beginning at 2PM every day.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
If you’re planning to visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the park hours will change up just a little mid-week at the end of June. The park will be open from 8AM to 5PM on June 27th and then will open from 8AM to 6PM from June 28th…
…through July 3rd. This gives you an extra hour to explore Pandora — The World of Avatar and visit with all of the animals in the park!
And, like other parks, park hopping hours will begin at 2PM.
Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
You can also visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park to cool off from the summer heat in Florida. The water park will open from 11AM to 6PM the week of June 27th.
Just keep in mind that the water park does not require a park pass reservation and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
It can fill to capacity on more popular days so, plan to arrive earlier in the day if you want to ensure you’ll be able to get into the park.
And, if you’re not headed into the parks, you can also visit Disney Springs! The shopping and dining district will be open from 10AM to 10PM June 27th July 1st…
…and will open for an extra hour on the weekend from 10AM to 11PM.
Now it’s time to get to planning your trip and making those park pass reservations! We will continue to keep you updated with the latest Disney park hours so stay tuned!
