The Disney World park hours were recently updated for September, with operating hours extended for the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. There are now a handful of days where the Magic Kingdom is open until 11pm with a second Main Street Electrical Parade added.
Hollywood Studios also had a few days changed, and will now stay open until 10pm occasionally. Those days will also see an additional showing of Fantasmic!. Animal Kingdom had a few closing times adjusted as well.
The chart below shows all current park hours with changes in red.
There have also been several minor changes to various days in October and November. Please check the park hours listed right here on TouringPlans.com for all of the latest hours.
You may notice minor changes to our Crowd Calendar involving some of the changed dates. We recently began using our own internal projected park hours to give you the most accurate crowd ratings available. Using these projected hours has made our long-term crowd ratings more stable, but we are not perfect (well, some of us).
We apologize for the changes, although one thing you should be aware of is that Disney sometimes announces extended operating hours on the actual day of operation. Saturdays in particular tend to be prime candidate for last minute extensions. These extensions are not necessarily something that can be planned around, but you should be aware that they are possible. We will make sure to keep you updated on all changes.
