Disney released hours through November 14 here. Now, Disney released hours through November 19. Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours events and Extended Evening Hours for guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts and other select hotels affect November theme park hours.

The After Hours Event runs from 9:00pm to 1:00am, but guests with attending the event can enter Magic Kingdom as early as 7:00pm. Unlike Boo Bash After Hours, Disney’s Very Merriest Christmas After Hours still have tickets available.

We’re (Susan and husband) going to Disney in December and couldn’t justify paying over $250 a ticket!

For the first half of November, Animal Kingdom is open to guests from 8:00am until 7:00pm. Animal Kingdom typically closes early anyway. Disney just released hours through November 19, and there is no change.

Pirate Tip: Get to Animal Kingdom early to avoid the long Flight of Passage lines.
