Surprise! Theme park hours were released a day early! Check out the newest updates here.
Theme park hours have been released a day early! We usually see updates to the Disney World calendar sometime each Friday, but they are ready for dates in mid-July tonight (Thursday).
Will we see this trend continue next week or will Disney go back to Friday releases? We will be sure to check next week!
July 11 – 17
Here are the the theme park hours for the week of July 11 – 17. Do keep in mind that EPCOT’s Food & Wine Festival begins on July 15 so the park will be buzzing with a new festival!
Magic Kingdom will be open from 9 am to 9 pm.
EPCOT will operate from 11 am to 10 pm.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be open from 9 am to 7 pm.
Finally, guests can visit Animal Kingdom from 8 am to 6 pm each day.
I really do hope we see extended hours for these dates. Pandora at night is so beautiful, and 6 pm is just too early to close!
These are essentially the same hours we see for the week before (July 3 – 10) with the exception of one hour at both Animal Kingdom and EPCOT.
Park pass availability for these dates
At time of publication, park pass availability is pretty open for these dates. Hollywood Studios is booked for the weeks of July 12, 13, and 14 for theme park ticket guests and select resort guests.
Annual Passholder reservations are completely open for this week, so if you are an AP and want to visit in mid-July (or any time in July) you are have plenty of availability.
Do keep in mind the availability calendar can book up in a moment’s notice as there is no telling how many “spots” are left on the calendar for each category. Disney does do a pretty decent job of shifting/adding availability where it is needed, so I would continue to check back often if you are trying to get a park pass that is sold out.
