Walt Disney World Extends Park Hours For The Holidays

The Walt Disney World calendar has been updated with new hours for the holiday season. So far, only hours through Nov. 28 are showing. 

The holidays officially begin at WDW on Nov. 6 and will run through Dec. 30. Here are the updated hours:

Magic Kingdom

  • Nov. 1-5 : 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Nov. 6-28: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Epcot (Festival of the Holidays begin Nov. 27)

  • Nov. 1-26: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Nov. 27-28: 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Hollywood Studios (no changes)

  • Nov. 1-28: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Animal Kingdom (no changes)

  • Nov. 1-28: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m

Holiday projections on Cinderella Castle

Magic Kingdom remaining open an hour later is most likely to accommodate the rotating nighttime projections on Cinderella Castle.

As for Epcot, the Festival of the Holidays is modified this year. The Candlelight Processional has been canceled, but guests will still be able to enjoy the holiday kitchens.

There will also be modified entertainment, including JOYFUL! performing R&B, Gospel, contemporary, and traditional Christmas and holiday music in the World ShowPlace and Voices of Liberty performing at the America Gardens Theatre.

2020 holiday offerings at Walt Disney World

There are even more 2020 holiday offerings happening across each theme park, resort, and Disney Springs, but, sadly, the following have been canceled:

  • Magic Kingdom’s Castle Dream Lights
  • Gingerbread House displays at hotels
  • Disney Springs’ Christmas Tree Trail
  • Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

The parks recently saw a reduction in hours starting on Sept. 8. It’s nice to see that Magic Kingdom and Epcot will be open later into the evenings for the holidays.

For all of the latest updates and information, be sure to keep an eye on our WDW reopening page and our 2020 & 2021 vacation planner. We’ll be sure to update you when more park hours are announced.
