New Dates Added for Extended Evening Hours in Disney World

Disney World hasn’t had Extra Magic Hours since reopening in July of 2020.

EPCOT at night

For the 50th Anniversary, Disney replaced Extra Magic Hours with Early Theme Park Entry for all resort guests, allowing them to arrive early at each of the four parks daily. In addition, there’s the added perk of Extended Evening Hours for guests of Deluxe Resorts on select nights. We’ve already seen some dates announced for this new offering, but Disney just added more to the list!

A few weeks ago, Disney World began releasing Extended Evening Hours options for the month of December 2021. We already had four dates announced for EPCOT and Magic Kingdom…


…but now we can add two more to that list! As of October 12th, Disney has updated the calendar. Now, there are more Extended Evening Hours from 10PM to midnight at EPCOT on Monday, December 20th and from 9PM-11PM at Magic Kingdom on Wednesday, December 22nd. 


And, here’s a look at the rest of the dates that have already been announced for Extended Evening Hours so far:
