Hollywood Studios is Scheduled to Get This Exclusive Disney World Hotel Perk for the First Time

It feels like there are never enough hours in the day when we’re at Disney World.

There’s so much to do! There are all the attractions, entertainment, snacks, and we can’t forget the importance of lounging on the hub grass and just taking it all in. Disney World can be a marathon, and with normal operating hours, it can definitely feel like a time crunch. However, there are a couple different ways you can get a few extra hours in the Disney parks, the main ones being Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours. This extra time is only available for select guests staying at Deluxe Resort hotels, and this park is staying open late for the first time ever!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is getting Extended Evening Hours in April! Up until now, the extra night hours were only available at EPCOT and Magic Kingdom, but on April 13th, 2022, select guests can stay at Hollywood Studios until 11PM! There are limited attractions available during Extended Evening Hours, and we don’t know which ones will be open at Studios, but we’ll update you as soon as we know!

With all of the E-ticket attractions at Hollywood Studios like Rise of the Resistance, Slinky Dog Dash, and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, it’ll be super beneficial to get a few more hours in the park! Though, it’s important to note that as of writing Disney has not shared which rides will be available as part of the Extended Evening Hours.

    1. Hi Jim! If you are staying at Wilderness Lodge, yes, it is considered a deluxe resort. If you are staying at Fort Wilderness, no, it is considered a moderate resort and does not qualify for extended evening hours.

  1. I’m somewhat bummed! I planned a whole April trip around a split stay based on the Epcot/MK pattern. I don’t know what to do now!

    1. I’m with you here… I’m wondering if this will be in addition to another MK extended night or…. ? I guess the only way we can plan these days for WDW (or just about anything) is to plan to be flexible.
