    you answered a question for me about marathon and our planned trip 11/5/22-11/11/22, but have a follow up question: are there ANY special events in that time period that would make the parks shut down early or open late? thanks!

    Hi Janet!

    Thanks for coming back to ask us another question. I'm excited to see that you're getting ready for a Walt Disney World Resort vacation in November! This is a fantastic time to visit the "Most Magical Place on Earth" because you'll be able to enjoy the start of the holidays in the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs. Plus, the Florida weather in November is perfect for exploring the resort!

    Unfortunately, the Park Hours for November and the special events for this year's holiday season haven't been released yet, but we recently got the news about Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returning to Magic Kingdom and the dates for that fun event. So I'm hoping that we will get information soon about the special events that Guests can enjoy this year during their holiday vacations and get some insight into the impact these events will have on Park Hours.

    Last year, Guests could enjoy Disney Very Merriest After Hours on select evenings in November and December, and on those evenings, Magic Kingdom closed early for Guests with standard theme park tickets. Last year's first Disney Very Merriest After Hours was held on November 8, 2021, so there is a chance that this year's special holiday events in Magic Kingdom could occur during your trip.

    I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog over the next few weeks and months to get information about the special events scheduled during your vacation that may impact theme park operating hours during your trip. Also, be sure to check the Park Hours over the next few months to get the latest information on the hours you will be able to enjoy each theme park. This way, you can either purchase tickets to events you're interested in or update your daily itinerary to account for scheduled Park Hours.

    Janet, let us know if you have additional questions we can help you with as you continue planning! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
