Disney has just released revised operating hours for November 2014, with the Magic Kingdom seeing a lot of changes.

Most days have been extended by 1 or 2 hours, and additional Main Street Electrical Parade performances have been added on many days. 

Both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom have also seen extensions on days throughout November, along with additional Fantasmic performances at the Studios.

We will be arriving on 11/12. I love that they expanded some hours but I chose November this year because October became so crowded. I hope it does not get too crowded!!! You know, just want the Kingdom for my own :)

If the hours are being added expect it to be crowded.

I tend to believe it has more to do with the short hours of the MK. Historically they extend the hours of another park, usually DHS to not erk the guests that all but one park is closed by sundown on the nights of the parties. My DS for years ago use to have his hours extended because of crowded parks but it was always while he was on shift or during holidays a day or two notice, not a month, month and a half in advance.

More to compensate for greater then originally expected crowds. The nights of the hard-ticket events were already set for 7pm. When they draw up the calendar at 6 months out, they tend to err on the conservative side and then expand hours as needed rather than set the hours too late and then find that the crowd level doesn't support them. They never shorten hours, only extend. -Rob

Guessing they are balancing the hours out to offset for early closures for Christmas Party early closings?
