NEWS: Disney World Releases Park Hours Through Early October!

Are you heading to Disney World to kick off the 50th Anniversary celebrations in October?

Cinderella Castle

Between new decorations, nighttime firework shows, character interactions, and more, there’s a lot to look forward to. And, though you might already have your Park Pass Reservations booked, we’ve now got a look at how many hours you’ll have in the park!

Previously, Disney had released the park hours through September 25th, and now we know when the parks will be open the following week, September 26th to October 2nd. Let’s take a look!

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom will open the first half of the week from 9AM to 9PM on September 26th through 29th. And, on September 30th, the park will open for one less hour from 9AM to 8PM.


And, when the celebrations begin on October 1st and 2nd, Magic Kingdom will go back to its later schedule and open for a full twelve hours from 9AM to 9PM.


If you don’t have a park pass to Magic Kingdom, you’ll still be able to head over (depending on capacity) after 2PM each day when Park Hopper hours begin.


Over in EPCOT, the park hours will be 11AM to 9PM daily, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the Food & Wine Festival.


Plus, the hours will remain the same for October 1st and 2nd when Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure officially opens and the new nighttime fireworks show, Harmonious, debuts.


Again, Park Hopper hours begin at EPCOT at 2PM.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios will open from 9AM to 9PM most nights, with the park opening for one less hour (from 9AM to 8PM) on September 29th.


And, those hours will remain consistent into the end of the week as well.


Park hopping begins at 2PM but keep in mind that if you’re hoping to get a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Disney’s Hollywood Studios must be the first park you visit that day and you must get a Park Pass for it.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

And, there will be lots of time to explore Pandora — The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom with the park open from 8AM to 7PM daily from September 26th…


…through October 2nd.


And, guests can start hopping over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom at 2PM.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

Plus, you’ll still be able to catch a break from the heat at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park between September 26th to October 2nd! The park will open 11AM to 6PM daily…


…and Park Pass Reservations are not required to enter.


So, it’s time to start making your plans for all that you’ll be able to tackle on your day at the parks for the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary! Of course, we’ll continue to keep an eye out for more Disney Park hour updates, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the latest!
