Magic Kingdom, Disney

We saw Disney extending the hours at a number of their Walt Disney World parks starting back in February during the Presidents' Day weekend. As crowds have continued to flock to all four theme parks in May and June, Disney has continued to extend the opening hours.

The parks continue to be extremely crowded as guests remain desperate to visit Walt Disney World with the Magic Kingdom currently unavailable until Friday July 1, 2022.

There is also already limited availability at EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom throughout the rest of June so to keep up to date with the latest availability at the Walt Disney World parks check out the Theme Parks Reservation System.

Hours had already been extended until May 28 and it has now appeared on the official calendar that these extended hours will now remain until July 30, 2022:

  • Magic Kingdom Park - 9:00AM to 11:00PM (except July 19 and 26 when the park will close at 10:00PM)
  • EPCOT - 8:30AM to 9:00PM
  • Disney's Hollywood Studios - 8:30AM to 9:00PM
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom - 8:00AM to 8:00PM

On Sunday July 31, 2022 the park hours are currently set to return to :

  • Magic Kingdom Park - 9:00AM to 10:00PM
  • EPCOT - 9:00AM to 9:00PM
  • Disney's Hollywood Studios - 9:00AM to 9:00PM
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom - continue at 8:00AM to 7:00PM

These extended hours are certainly much needed as we continue to see huge crowds at Walt Disney World. These times are subject to change so be sure to check the official calendar here before you visit. We will update you to further changes to the calendar on our news and Facebook page.
