We want to make sure that you have all the information that you need for your upcoming trip. Take a look at early October hours HERE. See Magic Kingdom October extensions HERE.
Disney World also frequently extends their park hours and adjusts them for crowd levels. Sometimes you can get a little more extra park time! Take a look at which hours have changed below.
The first updated hours are for EPCOT. However, don’t get too excited yet. Disney gives park goers an extra 30 minutes each morning from October 17-29. It will now open at 8:30am and close at 9:00pm. Hopefully Disney will expand these hours as it gets closer.
Animal Kingdom opens 30 minutes earlier (8:00am) on October 29. Not only that, but evening hours have been extended too. Now, the park stays open an hour later until 8:00pm on October 2-11, 13-17, 20-23, and 29.
Last, but certainly not least, Hollywood Studio gives guests extra time in the parks. Get up early because from October 2-29 Hollywood Studios opens 30 minutes earlier from October 2-29. On these dates, it opens at 8:30am with early entry for resort guests at 8:00am.
Keep an eye out on our KtP Blog for updated hours as they’re released.
