Nightly LATE Extra Magic Hours for Disney's Animal Kingdom confirmed!

Recently, it was rumored that Animal Kingdom would offer NIGHTLY LATE Extra Magic Hours during the busy Summer travel season, the rumor has been confirmed!

Update:  March 24, 2017  WDW Official Calendar now shows the Late EMH as well!

The Swan and Dolphin Resort has confirmed the rumor with a post on their Disney benefits page:

New: As a guest of the Walt Disney World® Swan and Dolphin Resort you may explore Pandora—The World of Avatar beyond regular Park hours from 11 pm to 1 am nightly, May 27th to July 4th 2017. This benefit is in addition to the Extra Magic Hours already available to you at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

This benefit of Nightly LATE Extra Magic Hours will be limited to only those staying in Walt Disney World Resorts that have access to Extra Magic Hours.  The twice weekly morning Extra Magic Hour program will continue to be offered as well.

I’ve updated my Crowd Calendars for May, June and July to reflect this new development.  The official Disney World park hours still mention a 10pm closing for all of June.  I’m sure that will be updated very soon.

  1. Hi Ktp! Love your site, sooo helpful. We arrive on July 4, so we have been crossing our fingers that the AK late nights would be extended into the summer. Just rechecked park hours for our upcoming trip and noticed that extra magic hours at AK are now nightly until midnight through early August. Any idea if this new extension is the entire park, or just Pandora like it is now? Just trying to figure out if I should change our current touring plans. Thanks!

    • It’s supposed to be all wdw resorts. Disney should confirm soon. Info came from Swan and Dolphin, so they could have worded it to seem like they are more exclusive and attract guests
