Though prices are on the rise and entertainment cuts are ongoing, it looks like crowds are simply not abating in 2020 at Walt Disney World, as Disney is predicting higher than normal crowds in March and April during the Spring Break travel season. In order to cope with what will likely be huge crowds, Disney has made the following changes to their calendar, which will hopefully give guests a little extra time to experience their favorite attractions even though guest levels will be extremely high
1. Extended hours at the Magic Kingdom
Though new attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios have been drawing guests early in the morning, guest levels are still high at Walt Disney World's flagship park, which will be adjusting its hours in March and April to the following:
- March 1, 6, 7: Park Hours Extended to 9:00 PM (Previously 8:00 PM)
- March 8-16 & 18-31: Park Hours Extended to 10:00 PM (Previously 9:00 PM)
- March 17: Park Hours Extended to 11:00 PM (Previously 9:00 PM)
- April 1 – 4: Park Hours Extended to 10 00PM (Previously 9:00 PM)
As a result of the extended hours, Extra Magic Hours on March 25th and April 1 have been pushed back to 10:00 PM – 12:00 AM from 9:00 PM – 11:00 PM.
Interestingly, though guest levels at this park are projected to be higher in the coming weeks, the Guest Experience Team at the Magic Kingdom will only be available during a reduced schedule from 10:00 AM through 7:00 PM. After this time guests who need help can visit the Liberty Square Ticket Office, City Hall, or the Guest Relations window at the Main Entrance for any help with ticketing, reservations, and more. Right now no other changes to the Guest Experience Team are expected at other parks.
