Disney is following the pattern of extending the operating hours at Walt Disney World theme parks a couple of weeks out with updates today for early April 2021.

Updated calendars today have extended the hours at all four theme parks from April 4 - 10 2021:

  • Disney's Hollywood Studios is increased by 2 hours - moving to a 9am opening and an 8pm close.

  • Magic Kingdom is increased by 4 hours - moving to an 8am opening and 9pm close.

  • EPCOT is increased by 4 hours, moving to an 11pm close.

  • Disney's Animal Kingdom is increased by 4 hours, moving to an 8am opening and an 8pm close.

In this update we also get a look at the hours for the first week of June at all four parks. Although very likely to change, the hours released so far carry on from late May.

You can view the most recent updates on our calendar.

DHS is once again closing at 8 pm through 7/31. We will see if MK gets its morning hour back and DAK gets its evening hour back. Wonder why they shortened Epcot and DHS only to extend back to status quo.

That has historically been around the right timeframe for a major corporate group convention that has been known to do an MK buyout

Boo bash is an after-hours event, not a “party” that starts at 6.

Yet that date still closes at 9 so it’s probably something else

Boo Bash is set to start August 10, while I realize its not a party, it is still an event, was just interjecting, clearly I was off base. Thanks have a great weekend!

I was going to ask the same thing. That sounds like a party closing… but no parties are returning that soon afaik.

Any idea why MK closes at 6 on 8/14?

I haven't seen anything said about the hours for the 4th of July. The hours for the parks are the same as any other day. I'll be at the studios that day and it closes at 7 pm. I would have thought that the hours would have been extended for sure that day.

We are moving down in June, while the parks aren't really on our agenda yet, we are definitely waiting on the Epcot after 4 annual passes to come back. I really hope those are available soon. World showcase is gonna be our evening walk more often than not.
