Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Parks for November are in for a special treat. Walt Disney World has added extra hours for Guests to enjoy even more magical moments. Find out if your upcoming Disney trip may be affected.
As Walt Disney World welcomed Guests with a phased reopening back in July, many things were different then in previous visits to the Disney Parks. Guests were welcomed back, but found the loss of fireworks, parades, character meet and greets, and even more in time in the Disney Parks to be a bit of a shock.
Although many things were missing from the Disney experience, the Disney Parks were still very magical. Guests felt that the trade off for what was missing was justified with lower wait times, and lower Park capacity.
After the initial phased reopening in July, Guests were surprised that in August Park hours would be shortened more rather than being extended.
Christmas Holiday Hours
With the reopening of Walt Disney World back in July, Walt Disney World has been releasing Theme Park hours on a weekly basis. Check out the Theme Park hours for December:
- You can see December 1-5 HERE.
- December 6-12 can be viewed HERE.

It has been great to see that the Park hours have continued to be extended especially for the upcoming holiday season. Guests planning an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World, will experience an early Christmas gift of extended time in ALL 4 of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks.
