    Hello, my children are competing at UCA Allstar championship in March. The information packet states that one park will be open for extended late hours on Friday March 10th. I am trying to confirm which park this is so I can plan accordingly. Thank you

    Hi Dana! Congratulations on the UCA Championship journey to Walt Disney World Resort! Your family must be so excited to have such an amazing experience at the Most Magical Place on Earth! You’re asking all of the right questions to begin your planning!

    I just looked at the calendar for Friday, March 10, 2023. Here is what I see for hours across all four of the Disney Parks: Magic Kingdom Park will be open from 9AM to 11PM, EPCOT will be open from 9AM to 9PM, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be open from 8:30AM to 9:30PM, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park will be open from 8AM to 8PM. So, my best guess is that your information packet is most likely referring to that late closing time for Magic Kingdom Park! Please keep in mind that hours are subject to change. You can also use this Disney Parks Calendar link to check park hours!

    Dana, while I’m not sure of your hotel booking or your schedule, I can share that Guests staying in Deluxe Disney hotels do have access to Extended Evening Theme Park Hours on select nights at either Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT. Magic Kingdom Park holds extended hours on most Wednesday nights and EPCOT holds extended hours on Monday nights. Use the link I provided to check for participating hotels.

    I hope this information is helpful with your planning! Feel free to bring more questions to planDisney!

    Happy planning!
