The following weekend, Friday, October 9 to Monday, October 12, the parks will be open even longer! Magic Kingdom will be open from 9 am to 8 pm. Epcot will be open from 11 am to 9 pm. The hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will not change that weekend. It will be open from 10 am to 7 pm. And Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be open from 8 am to 6 pm.

There’s no word if park hours will be extended on the weekends the rest of October, but stay tuned! We will update if anything changes.
