New: Disney Extends Hours for Disney World Parks in March

Are you wondering about theme park hours this spring? Check out how you can spend more time in the parks with extended hours.

Every week or so the Kenny the Pirate writing team shares the latest theme park hours as Disney releases them. These initial hours are a great way to begin preparing for your trip. However, Disney World extends park hours somewhat regularly.

This is even more exciting because you can plan what to do with all that extra time in the parks! 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. Check out last week’s update HERE.

For the week of March 13-19, Hollywood’s studios continues extending the earlier opening time (previously 9:00am.) From March 6-19, Hollywood Studios thrills guests from 8:30am until 9:00pm. This also changes early entry for resort guests to 8:00am.

Hours were previously released for EPCOT through March 12. At that time, EPCOT changed hours to open a half-hour earlier. EPCOT will now be opening at 8:30 am instead of 10:00 am from February 28 through March 19. As a result, early entry is at 8:00 a.m.

EPCOT hours through March 19 are 8:30am – 10:00pm.

Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom offers guests more time in this park! Previously, hours were 9:00am until 7:00pm. This made it difficult at times to see the Tree of Life transform into the Beacon of Magic. However, now Disney makes it easier with new park hours of 7:30am until 8:30pm! Early entry begins at 7:00am.

Last, but certainly not least, my (Susan) favorite park gives guests more time for fun! On March 13, Magic Kingdom will stay open until 10:00pm. Each evening from March 14-19, the Magic Kingdom now closes at 11:00pm instead of 8:00pm. Opening time remains 9:00am. This reminds me so much of pre-Covid late hours, and I love it!

From March 14-19, Magic Kingdom will be open from 9:00am through 11:00pm.
