    We are coming to disneyworld in January 2023. We are staying at the grand Floridian with dvc. What are the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours days for the parks?

    Hiya, Gayle!

    "Welcome Home" to planDisney from a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member. I'm so glad you've found your way here!  With just a few months to go until your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I bet the excitement is really starting to set in, and as it just so happens, you'll be staying at one of my all-time favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts –– The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  With an elegant-yet-approachable vibe, spectacular dining options, and easy access to both Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT via monorail, it's the perfect location for my family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do during your upcoming visit!

    Walt Disney World theme park hours are typically released about 60 days in advance, so there isn't any word just yet about what those park hours might look like for January 2023.  The great news, though, is that those park hours, including any possible Extended Evening Theme Park Hours for Deluxe Resort Guests, should be available in the next few weeks.  As your arrival gets closer, be sure to keep an eye on the "Park Hours & Info" section of the My Disney Experience mobile app for the most up-to-date hours and information. 

    While Extended Evening Theme Park Hours have been a fantastic perk for Resort Guests, if you're looking to take your after-hours game to the next level, Walt Disney World just announced that one of my favorite offerings is finally making its triumphant return for 2023 –– Disney After Hours events are back beginning January 4, 2023!  These separately ticketed events include park admission, shorter-than-average wait times for your favorite attractions, and even include unlimited ice cream, popcorn, and select beverages. In the past, these events have been a favorite for my family and we were so excited to see that they would be returning in time for our January visit.  And there's even an added bonus –– eligible Disney Vacation Club Members enjoy specially-discounted tickets to Disney After Hours as part of our Member Benefits.  So, not only will can you set off on late-night adventures in the parks, but you can save a little money in the process.  Talk about a win-win, right?  For event dates and prices, as well as to purchase tickets, be sure to head to the Disney After Hours page of the Walt Disney World website.

    Thanks so much for visiting planDisney, Gayle.  I'm wishing you lots of late-night fun and plenty of pixie dust during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    See Ya Real Soon,
