If you’ve ever dreamed of staying inside a Disney World park after closing time so that you could get on more rides and enjoy the atmosphere without the big crowds, there’s a simple way to make that happen — just stay at a Disney Deluxe hotel!
Guests at Disney Deluxe Resorts can take advantage of Extended Evening Hours, which allows them to stay late at certain parks on select days. The Extended Evening Hours perk was introduced in late 2021 as one of the replacements for Extra Magic Hours (which ended in 2020). Now, Disney has revealed more about how long this perk will stick around.
According to Disney’s webpage for Extended Evening Hours, this benefit will continue through all of 2023 at least.
They have not announced whether it will end after 2023 or continue beyond that point.
Extended Evening Hours are available for guests staying at any of these Disney World hotels:
