Walt Disney World parks will be operating with reduced hours! Here are the new park hours at Walt Disney World effective starting September 8th:

Magic Kingdom – 9am to 6pm (previously 7pm)

EPCOT – 11am to 7pm (previously 9pm)

Hollywood Studios – 10am to 7pm (previously 8pm)

Animal Kingdom – 8am to 5pm (previously 6pm)

Although the parks closing an hour earlier may not seem like much, it can affect how you plan your day, especially if you have sit down dining reservations.

The official Disney World Magic Kingdom calendar shows park hours have been altered beginning September 8th, the day after Labor Day Weekend ends. Labor Day is usually a major travel weekend in the U.S. and marks the unofficial end of summer for most families.

The calendar (shown above) shows that fireworks and parades still remain cancelled at time, and it is unlikely that these shows will return before an effective COVID-19 vaccine is available.

There is still no official word from Disney about whether or not Extra Magic Hour privileges will still be available to Disney Resort guests in the future. They are still suspended for now.
