  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • Disney’s Beach Club Resort
  • Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
  • Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Typically, Monday is reserved for Epcot and Wednesday is reserved for Magic Kingdom. Since this started back in October, these two parks are the only participating parks. Also, not every attraction is available. See the full list HERE.

Hollywood Studios is joining the schedule for Extended Evening Hours! On Wednesday, April 13, Hollywood Studios is scheduled to remain open from 9:00 to 11:00 pm for deluxe guests only.

We are unsure which attractions will be available and which ones will not.

Since this is the very last line on the table, we are not sure where Magic Kingdom will move. Magic Kingdom is typically on Wednesday evenings with one random Friday night. Additionally, the nighttime hours at Magic Kingdom also move to Tuesday, March 28 instead of the following day.

Wednesday, April 13 is the first day Hollywood Studios will participate in Extended Evening Hours.

Could Magic Kingdom’s schedule change without warning? Will Hollywood Studios always be open late on Wednesday evenings? We will watch the schedule and keep you informed!
