Select Disney World Parks Will Open EARLIER the Week of Thanksgiving

Are you thinking about going to Disney World for Thanksgiving?

Magic Kingdom is decorated for the holidays!

Heading into the Disney Parks is a great way to make the holiday a little extra special. And, this year, Disney is gearing up to welcome more guests by adding additional park pass availability and even extending hours at EPCOT. But, that’s not the only place that you can get some extra park time on Thanksgiving — Disney has extended hours at MORE parks on and around November 25th, 2021!

According to Disney’s website, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom will open for additional hours this holiday season.

At Magic Kingdom, hours were previously set to be 9am to 8pm on November 21st and November 23rd, but now guests will have an extra hour, with the park opening from 8AM to 8PM on both dates.


At EPCOT, park hours were extended by an extra hour for an additional week, so guests can enjoy the park from 10AM to 10PM November 21-27 (previously the hours were 11AM to 10PM).


And, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the hours have been extended from 8AM to 7PM to now be 8AM to 8PM November 21st through 27th.


Park hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will remain the same, however, opening from 9AM to 9PM the week of Thanskgiving.


Keep in mind that park hopping hours begin at 2PM in all four theme parks, so you can make your way to whichever park you’d like after this time (if you’ve purchased a park hopper ticket). And, these hours could change again, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the most up-to-date information!

  1. What about the resort guests & their 30 min before opening? Does this mean, for example, Tuesday, November 23rd, I can get into EPCOT at 9:30?
