If you will be traveling to Disney World for Spring Break, heads up: Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom operating hours have changed! Read on for details, dates, and what this means for you.
With the busy Spring Break season approaching, Disney is updating operating hours to accommodate the influx in crowds. Spring Break is one of the most popular times of the year to visit so changes were a possibility.
We just saw park hours change at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Many dates were affected in March and April.
Just a few weeks ago, park hours were updated for Magic Kingdom in February. You can see all those dates HERE in case you will be vacationing at the end of February into March.
New Operating Hours for March
To see the new times, head over to Kenny’s FREE crowd calendar for March 2020. You will find changes for the following dates at Magic Kingdom:
- March 1
- March 6 to March 31
You will find changes for the following dates at Animal Kingdom:
- March 14
- March 16-18

New Operating Hours for April
To see the new times, head over to Kenny’s FREE crowd calendar for April 2020. You will find changes beginning April 1 and going until April 4 at Magic Kingdom. There are no new hours in April at Animal Kingdom.
Alternatively, you can check Character Locator if you have a subscription. While you’re there, you can adjust your touring plan if you will get to enjoy the parks longer! I love how easy Character Locator is to use! I never go to Disney without it.
Touring plans, maps, character interaction tips, and full menus can all be found on Character Locator!
What do these changes mean for you?
If park hours have been extended during your stay, you will find additional FastPass+ selections for attractions, including popular or hard-to-get ones! You may grab a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Flight of Passage now if you weren’t able to get it earlier!
If they haven’t popped up immediately, it may take a day or so. Keep watching!
Also, more Rivers of Light shows at Animal Kingdom were added in March.
