When you’re heading to Disney World, one of the most important things you’ll want to keep checking are the park hours.
Disney can change park hours from time to time, so you want to make sure you’ve got the latest information to really take full advantage of your time there. Plus, with the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebrations kicking off soon, you’ll want to be sure you have your Park Pass Reservations secured in advance. And, to help you plan ahead, we’ve got an update on park hours in October!
Previously, Disney had released the park hours through October 2nd, and now we know when the parks will be open from October 3rd to 9th — let’s take a look!
Magic Kingdom will open on October 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 9th from 9AM to 9PM. But, hours will be a bit shorter on October 5th and 8th (opening from 9AM to 8:30PM) due to the separately ticketed event, Disney After Hours BOO Bash, taking place those evenings.
And, if you’re planning to do some park hopping to Magic Kingdom that week, you can do so beginning at 2PM.
Again, you will be able to park hop to EPCOT beginning at 2PM.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
And, if you’re thinking about visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the park will be open for a full twelve hours from 9AM to 9PM daily giving you plenty of time to enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and watch the returning fireworks show.
Of course, park hopping hours will remain the same as other parks, beginning at 2PM.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
And, again, park hopping hours will begin at 2PM.
Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
Plus, if you’re hoping to take a dip in the wave pool or float down the lazy river at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, it will open from 11AM to 6PM.
Just keep in mind that, unlike other Disney parks, Blizzard Beach does not require a Park Pass Reservation so you can arrive at any time.
Lastly, we got a look at the hours for Disney Springs and it will open from 10AM to 11PM on October 3rd through 7th and then remain open longer from 10AM to 11:30PM on October 8th and 9th.
And, that’s all the park hour updates we have for now! These hours are subject to change, so be sure to check the My Disney Experience app for the most up-to-date times before you’re head in! Of course, we’ll also keep an eye out for more updates and let you know if we find any!
