As we continue to monitor the park hours adjustments around Walt Disney World through the busy holiday season, Disney has just extended park hours in December 2019 and January 2020, including Extra Magic Hours and New Years Eve. Here are the changes that we noticed:
- December 25th: Park hours extended from 9am open to 8am open. Extra Magic Hours shifted from 8-9am to 7-8am
- December 31st: Park hours extended from 9am open to 7am open
- January 18th: Park hours extended from 8pm close to 9pm close
As a reminder, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be celebrating New Year’s Eve this year!
Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season will “roar in” the New Year. That’s because Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will be open until midnight to celebrate New Year’s Eve on December 31, 2019.
Throughout the night, you’ll find special New Year’s Eve-themed food and drinks, while DJs in Asia, Discovery Island and DinoLand U.S.A. will keep the party pumping! As midnight approaches everyone can gather around Discovery Island and Asia to watch a special New Year’s Eve countdown on the iconic Tree of Life. Energetic music and lighting displays will welcome in 2020.
Guests can also get into the fun with special pin trading opportunities, plus a limited-edition New Year’s Eve pin available beginning that evening. Subject to change and based on availability.
