Disney World Crowd Calendar and Park Hours 2018 and 2019

Disney World park hours adjusted and more Star Wars Fireworks

Disney World has adjusted the park hours for late July, August, September and some of December and added some Star Wars Fireworks times.  Here’s the details:

July 31 
Magic Kingdom extended park hours to 11pm and added a second Main Street Electrical Parade at 11pm

July 31 through August 27 
Park hours for the Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon were extended

September 3
Magic Kingdom was extended to open at 8am and close at 1am.  No additional Main Street Electrical Parades added at this time.

September 6 through 24 
Hollywood Studios added park hours and Star Wars – A Galactic Spectacular Fireworks were added nightly.  You may notice that many dates from August onward have Fantasmic! beginning 15 minutes before the fireworks.  It would be impossible to view them both in the same evening with this type of overlap.

December 23 through 29
Magic Kingdom extended park hours, but still hasn’t added any Wishes fireworks or Main Street Electrical Parades for Christmas break season.  I’m sure all the fireworks and parade times will be added at a later date.

Anytime you see park hours extended, you’ll also find additional Fastpass+ available.  If you were searching for a Fastpass+ for one one of these parks on these dates, try again now and see what you can find.

  1. Any chance they will add a second fantastic show towards the end of September? I have two little girls ages 2 and 5. This will be our first trip to DW. If we have to pick between Fantastic and the Star Wars Fireworks which would you recommend Kenny? I know in a recent post you said fireworks but with their ages would that still be your vote? Thank you so much! Love your site and so approbate all of your hard work!

    1. I really like what they did with fireworks, but perhaps you preview each? Fantasmic can be a bit boring in parts with all the water screen action.
      Not sure they will add another then

  2. We are going on Sept 2 and I noticed the 15 minute difference in Fantasmic and fireworks what I understand from your post that ya correct and we have to choose?

    1. sent that from my phone and couldn’t see it so well. Should have said that is correct and we will have to choose.

  3. If we only knew when they are going to start selling the Star Wars Dessert Party for Mid September that will be awesome!
    As of now they are only available till September 5th! and for anyone looking there is still availability for Sept 5th
    Thanks Kenny for sharing the info Have a Great Weekend
