Every few weeks our team at Kenny the Pirate shares the latest theme park hours that Disney releases. These initial hours are a great way to begin preparing for your trip, but oftentimes Disney World extends park hours.

This is even more exciting because you can plan what to do with all that extra time in the park! Maybe you want to enjoy a late night dinner reservation, or maybe you want to squeeze a few more rides into your day. Be sure to utilize Character Locator for all your planning!

Whatever the reason is, extended park hours are almost always a welcome change! Here are the latest updates we have to share with you this week.

Magic Kingdom Extension

Guests will be able to enjoy more time in the Magic Kingdom with this new change:

February 4: the park closes at 9:00 pm instead of 8:00 pm. This means the Extended Evening Hours will run from 9:00 to 11:00 instead of 8:00 to 10:00.

Guests will be able to enjoy more time at Animal Kingdom with these new hours:

January 30: Animal Kingdom now opens at 8:00 am (initially 9:00 am). This pushes Early Theme Park Entry up to 7:30 am. Also on this date, the park closes at 8:00 pm instead of 7:00 pm.

February 4: The park now opens at 8:00 am instead of 9:00 am. Again, this means onsite Guests can enter as early as 7:30 am.

February 5: Onsite Guests will be able to enter at 7:30 am now, instead of 8:30 am because the park’s opening has moved up one hour to 8:00 am. Also, Animal Kingdom will now close at 8:00 pm instead of 7:00. Take that extra hour at night to explore Pandora. It’s beautiful at night!
