With park calendars previously listing hours through the 31st October, park hours have now been added through the 7th November. These park hours match the same reduced hours we’ll see go into effect starting next month.
Park hours from the 8th November onward have yet to be added to the calendar:
Two months ago, Disney Parks made the following announcement regarding the status of popular holiday events such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays:
“We are monitoring our new environment closely and will make a decision on these events as we continue to learn more from government and health officials. As always, our goal is to explore every option and look at ways in which we can still host events and festivals full of Disney magic, while still operating responsibly with the health and safety of our guests and Cast Members in mind.”
Should Disney follow the same pattern as to what they did with the reopening events, Disney may decide to cancel Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, whilst keeping the Festival of the Holidays, including a socially-distanced Candlelight Processional, or no Processional at all, taking into account the reduced operating hours.
We expect an announcement on the above-mentioned events to be made closer to the holiday season, depending on progress made during the past few reopening months at the Disney World parks.
