Almost every week, 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. We want to make sure that you have all the information that you need for your upcoming trip.

Disney World also frequently extends its park hours and adjusts them for crowd levels. Sometimes you can get a little more extra park time! You can check out our most recent update for park hours HERE. We now have exciting news that you can enjoy the Disney Parks until midnight without the need for Extended Evening Hours or a separately priced After Hours ticket.

Enjoy Parks until Midnight

Come this winter, guests can enjoy three of the four Walt Disney World theme parks until midnight. The exception to this is Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Due to caring for the many animals that call Disney’s Animal Kingdom their home, this park often holds the shortest park hours.

The most magical night of the year, New Year’s Eve, will be open for guests to enjoy Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Magic Kingdom until midnight to ring in the New Year.

Guests can enjoy the following park hours:

  • Magic Kingdom: December 30th and 31st from 9:00am until 12:00 am
  • EPCOT: December 31st from 9:00 am until 12:00 am
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios: December 31st from 8:30 am until 12:00 am

Yesterday we shared that a slight nighttime entertainment change will take place at Magic Kingdom replacing Disney Enchantment on select nights. See these date changes HERE. Fantasy in the Sky will return once again on both December 30th and December 31st.

The most magical night of the year, New Year’s Eve, will be open for guests to enjoy Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Magic Kingdom until midnight to ring in the New Year.

Guests can enjoy Harmonious at 6:30 pm at EPCOT. Around the World Showcase, guests can enjoy firework displays that take place in the order in which each country celebrates the New Year. At this time, Disney has not announced a time for this firework display. We are glad that it will be returning.

Park Reservations are limited for December. If you plan to visit the parks this holiday season, be sure to make your park reservation now.
