The new and reduced park hours, which Disney announced last month, for all four Walt Disney World theme parks officially start today.
The new park hours are as follows:
- Magic Kingdom – 9:00pm to 6:00pm (previously closed at 7:00pm)
- EPCOT– 11:00am to 7:00pm (previously closed at 9:00pm)
- Disney’s Hollywood Studios – 10:00am to 7:00pm (previously closed at 8:00pm)
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom – 9:00am to 5:00pm (previously opened at 8:00am and closed at 6:00pm)
Disney Springs operating hours remain unchanged, from 10:00am to 10:00pm daily. The above-mentioned park hours have been updated on the Walt Disney World website.
Guests who have Advance Dining Reservations affected by the new hours should have received a notification by now, if not, select restaurants are still accepting reservations after the parks close despite reduced hours.
Select restaurants include Be Our Guest at the Magic Kingdom and 50’s Prime Time Café at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Annual Passholders who have the EPCOT After 4 pass can now enter the park at 2:00pm.
