Disney has now released 2 additional nights with extended hours:

  • Monday, October 18: EPCOT 10:00pm to midnight
  • Wednesday, October 20: Magic Kingdom 9:00pm to 11:00pm

I am so excited for the release of these extended hours. Guests can enjoy the Parks illuminated brilliantly with the benefit of shorter waits for more popular attractions.

Guests can now enjoy extended hours on October 18th in EPCOT from 10:00pm-midnight and in the Magic Kingdom on October 20th from 9:00pm-11:00pm.
