Hours at all Walt Disney World theme parks have been extended for Valentine’s Day week, and Park hours have been added for April! Here are all of the details.

If you have a trip coming soon, you may be carefully watching Theme Park hours in order to plan the “best trip ever!” Some hours have been extended for the week of Valentine’s Day!

February 14-February 20

We were excited when hours were originally extended for dates in February, but this new extension for the week of February 14 through 20 is even better!

Character Locator has all of the up to date information on Park hours, so be sure to check there often for any updates!

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom was originally scheduled to operate from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The Park will still open at 9:00 AM each day. However, Magic Kingdom will be closing at 10:00 PM on February 14, 15, 19, and 20.

On February 16, the park will close at 9:00 PM and on February 17 and 18 it will close at 7:00 PM.


If you’re heading to EPCOT to check out the Festival of Arts, you’ll be excited to hear hours are extended here as well!

EPCOT will open every day at 11:00 AM, but will close at 10:00 PM on February 14. The Park will close at 8:00 PM February 15 through 19, and 9:00 PM on February 20. The park was previously scheduled to close at 7:00 PM daily.
