March certainly did NOT go out like a lamb when it comes to Disney World crowds! Spring break is in full swing and from the looks of the park hours and Park Pass Reservation availability, it’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon!
With April 4th being a holiday, we may expect to see some additional crowding at the beginning of the week. If you’re heading to the parks for the week, be sure to read up on all the latest planning info below!
Disney World Park Hours the Week of April 4th
Across the board, each of the four theme parks has the same park hours that we’ve seen so far since the start of the spring break season. Magic Kingdom will be open daily next week from 8AM-9PM.
EPCOT will be open daily from 11AM-11PM. The Taste of EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival will also be open daily for guests from 11AM-11PM.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be open daily next week from 9AM-8PM.
Finally, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be open daily next week from 8AM-8PM.
Remember that across all four theme parks, Park Hopping is not permitted until 2PM.
In order to Park Hop, you must have the Park Hopper feature added onto your ticket and you must have been scanned into the first park of the day for which you had a valid Park Pass Reservation before you can Hop to your next park.
Regardless of which park you are planning on visiting, you can begin to use the new MagicMobile service on your smart device!
If you are looking to try this out in place of your MagicBand (or alongside it), some guests are able to access the mobile service on their iOS devices! The rollout is expected to continue to Android devices soon.
