If you’re headed to Disney World for the holidays, you’re in for a real treat!
Not only will the parks be sporting their holiday decorations (one park got started a little early!), but you’ll also have the opportunity to get tickets to Mickey’s Very Merriest After Hours, indulge in food and fun at the EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays, and shop for holiday merchandise.
Just in time for all your planning needs, Disney World has released park hours through December 27th, so you can plan your days accordingly! We previously had shared the park hours through November 27th, so now you’ll have an idea of when the parks will be open throughout much of the upcoming holiday season.
Update: Disney World has now released hours through January 15th, 2022. See the updated hours below.
On November 28th and 30th, Magic Kingdom’s hours are from 9AM to 8PM, with the Very Merriest After Hours Party beginning at 9PM on those nights. On November 29th, hours are from 9AM to 9PM.
The hours are the same from December 1st through 11th. During that time, Magic Kingdom will be open from 9AM to 9PM, except on days when there’s a Very Merriest event. On those days, the park closes at 8PM.
This continues from December 12th through 25th…
…as well as through December 29th. On December 30th and 31st, the park will be open until 12AM.
On January 1st, 2022 the hours for Magic Kingdom are currently set at 9AM – 9PM.
From January 2nd through the 15th, the Magic Kingdom will be open from 9AM to 8PM every day.
Be sure to keep an eye on the calendar in December for the Very Merriest After Party so you’ll know when Magic Kingdom will be closing an hour earlier than normal.
At EPCOT, the hours from November 28th through 30th are from 11AM to 10PM.
These hours are the same from December 1st through 18th…
…and from December 19th through the 25th.
From December 26th through December 30th, EPCOT will be open from 10AM to 10PM. EPCOT was previously going to be open until 12AM on New Year’s Eve, the hours were later changed, and now they’ve changed back. As of right now, EPCOT will be open until midnight on New Year’s Eve.
On January 1st, 2022, the park will be open from 10AM to 10PM. On January 2nd through the 8th, it’ll be open from 10AM to 9PM.
These hours — 10AM to 9PM — continue from January 9th through the 15th.
Be sure to keep these hours in mind if you’re planning on spending New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day in EPCOT!
Hollywood Studios will be open from 9AM to 9PM on November 28th through 30th.
The hours for December 1st through 25th are also 9AM to 9PM.
And those same hours continue for the 26th through the 30th. On the 31st, however, Hollywood Studios will be open from 9AM to midnight.
On January 1st, the park will go back to its 9AM to 9PM schedule…
…which will continue from January 2nd through the 15th.
That gives you 12 hours to spend in the park on the very first day of the new year!
