If you have plans to visit Disney World through the end of the year, you will want to check out all the extended park hours! Are you excited about more time in the parks?
Since the reopening, Disney has kept park hours much shorter than we are all used to. Gone are the days of getting into Hollywood Studios at 6 am and riding Big Thunder in the dark.
With nighttime entertainment and lower crowds, there is just no need for Disney to keep longer hours. It is a cost-cutting strategy.
But, it still stinks! If you need ideas for how to spend your evenings outside the parks, check out some ideas HERE.
However, Disney is answering the need to keep Guests spread out and happy. There has definitely been an increase in crowds over the last month or so. Wait times are creeping up, and without FastPasses, you need an excellent strategy to tour the parks effectively.
Pirate tip: Use Character Locator for all your park needs! There are updated 2020 touring plans, full menus, and the crowd calendar.
