Disney’s Hollywood Studios has offered Extended Evening Hours only on Wednesday, April 13. Hollywood Studios remained open from 9:00 to 11:00 pm for deluxe guests only. You can read more about this amazing experience HERE.

We hoped that Extended Evening Hours would continue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, especially for the busy summer months. Unfortunately, they did not, but now we have added dates for Extended Evening Hours near the end of the year.

Donna has always loved Disney even at an early age. When she was younger her family would joke that she lived in "Donna Land". Even now as an adult, she loves to plan and make magical vacations come to life as she and her family travel "Home" to Walt DisneyWorld. Join her as she brings a little faith, trust, and a little bit of pixie dust to Disney planning.


  1. I think Disney’s very unfair to Florida passholders. They are obviously catering everything to tourists staying on property Early Park hours no blocked outs! This to meet is so UNFAIR. Tourists are only here for a short time then go back where they came from.
    Passholders living in Florida can go any day of the week IF there is a STUPID RESERVATION available. Again tourists get any day anytime any park and other perks.
    Guests from Florida have been turned away one senior citizen couple had this happen to them. It would not have been a hardship for Disney to let them. I hate the reservation system we used to go any day any time or spur of the moment just to get a meal enjoy the lights watch a parade or do a little sight seeing. Candlelight is coming up and passholders are blocked for 2 weeks at Christmas thru New Year’s. The absolute best time to go to the parks in all their glory. Disney is loosing passholders due to Florida’s love for tourists and their money. I don’t think is is so UNFAIR for passholders to be spoiled a little do to the money it does cost to purchase passholders tickets. Year after year and eat drink spend money and be rewarded for their continued love and support to WDW.
