One Disney World Hotel Perk Has Been Extended Through 2023

If you hate the typical daytime crowds in Disney World, there is one exclusive way you get to stay in the parks AFTER closing time.

EPCOT at night

Extended Evening Hours is a special perk for guests staying at deluxe Disney World hotels, allowing them to stay for a few hours at select Disney Parks after closing. This typically means fewer crowds, lower wait times, and an overall quieter experience — and now Disney just announced how long we can expect to see this perk in Disney World.

According to Disney World’s website, Extended Evening Hours will continue to be offered throughout all of 2023! Note that this announcement does not say anything about 2024 and beyond, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens after 2023.


Extended Evening Hours usually take place on Monday and Wednesday nights at Magic Kingdom or EPCOT, although Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been included on occasion, too. You can see the current schedule for Extended Evening Hours from October to January 2023 below:

  1. Yes, I’ve used Extended Hours at EPCOT. I was disappointed that there was NO food available. I planned on eating a late dinner (930 or 10 PM), but nothing was open. I had a Mickey pretzel.
