Park Hours Extended Due to Marathon Weekend Crowds


Race weekends always tend to draw larger park crowds for WDW but this year they are causing Disney to extend park hours to accommodate large numbers of guests.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios will now be open until 9pm January 5 2017, an extension from the original 8pm close.

At the Magic Kingdom, hours on January 5, 6, and 7 2017 have been extended by an hour to an 11pm close.


Will you be participating in one of the races this weekend?
