    We are arriving on Tuesday 9th July 24 and we were wondering when there will be announcements about extended evening hours in the parks

    Greetings, Robert! Welcome back to planDisney! One of the first things I do when planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is check the dates for the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours benefit! It is my favorite perk of staying in a deluxe Walt Disney World Resort hotel! There is nothing I enjoy more than being in the Disney Parks late at night with minimal crowds!

    The best place to find the dates for the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours is on the Disney Parks calendar! The calendar is usually published up to two months in advance. As of the posting of this answer, the calendar extends through May 3, 2024. As long as the calendar continues to be updated at the current pace, the earliest that you should begin to see July 2024 hours would be in May 2024. 

    Robert, while the calendar is always subject to change, there are usually two parks that consistently hold Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. EPCOT typically holds extended hours on Monday nights. Magic Kingdom typically holds extended hours on Wednesday nights. Also, keep in mind that Guests who are in line for an attraction, prior to park closing, can remain in line even if the park closes while you are waiting in line. You’ll still get to enjoy the attraction!

    Dreams do come true!
