Sometimes those hours change when there are special events happening inside the park, during holidays or other busy times, or just because! Most of the changes aren’t too drastic (maybe the difference of an hour or two), but we just saw an updated schedule for the Magic Kingdom that is pretty significant.
According to Disney World’s calendar, Magic Kingdom is scheduled to close at 4:30PM on January 25th, 2022.
That’s a BIG difference from the normal closing time of 8 or 9PM that we’re used to seeing at this park! We’re not sure why the Magic Kingdom is currently set to close that early, but it’s possible that the park’s hours will change, so be sure to check for updates as the date gets closer.
We recently saw a surprising update followed by a quick change when EPCOT showed that it was closing at 10PM instead of midnight on New Years Eve. When we checked back soon after, the closing time was back to 12AM on that day.
So, it’s possible that this closing time will change. But if it doesn’t change and you don’t have a park hopper ticket, you might want to consider switching your park reservation to one of the other theme parks on January 25th so you can have MORE time in the parks. As of the time of writing, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be open until 7PM, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT will both be open until 9PM on January 25th.
We’ll let you know about any other big changes, so keep following DFB for more updates as you plan your next Disney World vacation!
