Thanksgiving has come and gone and it’s almost December — can you believe it?!
Well, you better, because this is probably the MOST festive time of the year at Disney World, and there are a lot of ways that you can celebrate. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is happening on certain nights, decorations are up everywhere, and EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays has begun! And, if you’re planning on being in Disney World next week, you need to be prepared for how busy it might be. So, we’re taking a look at the park hours and Park Pass Reservation availability for next week in Disney World — let’s go!
Magic Kingdom Park Hours
We’re starting in Magic Kingdom, where on November 28th & 30th the park will be open from 9AM to 11PM. On November 27th & 29th, Magic Kingdom will be open from 8AM to 6PM due to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which runs from 7PM to 12AM on those dates. On November 30th, Extended Evening Hours (for qualifying Disney World Resort hotel guests) are scheduled from 11PM to 1AM.
For December, Magic Kingdom will be open from 8AM to 6PM on December 1st & 2nd (with MVMCP happening from 7PM to 12AM), and from 9AM to 11PM on December 3rd.
Now, let’s head to EPCOT!
EPCOT Park Hours
EPCOT will be open from 9AM to 9:30PM from November 27th to the 30th…
…and from 9AM to 9:30PM from December 1st to the 3rd.
Extended Evening Hours will take place on November 28th from 9:30PM to 11:30PM.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park Hours
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be open from 8:30AM to 9PM for the rest of November…
…and the beginning of December.
If you want to park hop in Disney World right now, you have to have a Park Pass Reservation to start your day and you have to wait until after 2PM to scan into your second park (you have to go to your first park first!). An easy way to travel between EPCOT and Hollywood Studios is via the Disney Skyliner!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park Hours
And Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be open from 8AM to 7PM on November 27th & 28th. On November 29th & 30th, the park will be open from 9AM to 7PM.
On December 1st & 2nd, Animal Kingdom will be open from 8AM to 7PM, and on December 3rd, Animal Kingdom will be open from 8AM to 8PM.
Now, let’s check out the availability of Park Passes next week!
Park Pass Reservation Availability
The Disney World Park Pass availability calendar is divided by theme park tickets, resort hotels, and Annual Passes. For visitors with Theme Park Tickets, there is full availability for the rest of November…
…and the beginning of December!
If you’re staying at a Disney World hotel, the availability is the same as it is with the theme park tickets. The rest of November is completely open…
…and so is the beginning of December. But remember, this can always change as the days get closer!
If you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder you have a different calendar of park pass availability. Next week, the Incredi-Pass has no blockout dates with full park availability.
Sorcerer Passholders is the same thing — there is full park reservation availability next week and no blockout dates.
If you have the Pirate Pass you also have no blockout dates and full park availability.
And, the Pixie Dust Pass is blocked on November 27th & December 3rd, but the rest of the week is open for reservations.
And that’s what you need to know about Disney World’s park hours and Park Pass availability for next week!
