Earlier we shared that Magic Kingdom will offer fewer Extended Evening Hours this fall due to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. We were quite surprised when Disney’s Animal Kingdom was added to the list of parks offering Extended Evening Hours.

The most significant advantage of a deluxe stay is Extended Evening Hours. While Early Theme Park Entry is included for all onsite Guests, Extended Evening Hours are only for deluxe and deluxe villa Guests. This perk gives you extra time in the park after the normal operating hours. Enjoy low wait times and low crowds!

The full listing of Extended Evening Hour dates will include: November 8th and 22nd, and December 4th and 28th. Guests staying at select Deluxe Resorts can enjoy Disneys’ Animal Kingdom for two hours (from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.)

When we first announced the initial dates for Extended Evening Hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney had not announced a listing of what attractions and experiences would be available.

Well that's lovely if you can afford to stay in the deluxe accommodation. We are pass holders and would like to see some of the extended hours offered to us. We visit the parks often, and with the high day time temps this summer it would be nice to have the early entry or extended hours available to us. Over all it would be nice to see pass holders given more deals in general.
