Updated April 19, 2024

Operating Hours are seasonal.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

During peak visiting periods, such as holidays and summertime, the parks are open later. During the time between Christmas and New Year’s, parks will be open the longest.

In the spring, the longest hours are generally the week before and after Easter. The weeks preceding these peak periods will have some longer hours. During off-peak times, Animal Kingdom will close as early 5 p.m., other parks may close as early as 7 p.m., except Epcot, which usually closes at 9 p.m.

Also, during many special events, such as on evenings of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, or private events, the parks can close as early as 7 p.m.
