Another thing you’ll want to look at are those park hours. Operating hours can vary by theme park and by day. So, if you’ll only be visiting 1 park per day (a.k.a. you don’t have park hopper tickets) you’ll want to make sure you’re not visiting a park on a day when it might be closing extra early. We already saw one day in early 2022 on which guests might want to skip going to Magic Kingdom, and now we’ve got another important update!
In mid-January of 2022, Magic Kingdom will be closing EXTRA early on one particular day. But, now the Disney calendar has been updated to show that the park will also be closing very early on one day in February. On February 8th, 2022, Magic Kingdom will actually close at 4:30PM.
If you don’t have a Park Hopper ticket and that’s the only park you decide to visit on that day, you will be getting a LOT less time in the park. On the day before (February 7th) and the day after (February 9th), Magic Kingdom will stay open until 8PM. That’s 3.5 hours MORE than on the 8th.
So, if you’re planning to visit Disney World during this time in February and you don’t have Park Hopper tickets, you might want to consider avoiding Magic Kingdom on the 8th. Instead, you could spend that day at another park that will be open later and visit Magic Kingdom on one of the surrounding days where it will be open later.
Of course, all park hours are subject to change. Be sure to keep checking for updates on the Disney calendar as your trip gets closer. And stay tuned to DFB for all the latest Disney news.
