    what days are early open in which parks

    Hey Carol! Welcome to planDisney. This November is jam-packed with holiday fun at Walt Disney World Resort and you may be there for it. Three highlights are Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and if your vacation extends to November 25, 2023, you can also experience the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays.

    Early Theme Park Entry is a special benefit for Disney Resort Hotels and other select hotels. Guests are allowed in the theme park to experience attractions 30 minutes before other day Guests. All four theme parks are open between 8:30 - 9:00 AM. Here is a 5-day calendar for the theme parks starting November 17, 2023, to keep as a reference as you get closer to your dates. Also, you may check the Early Theme Park Entry theme parks on the My Disney Experience App. To find the information:

    1. Open the My Disney Experience App
    2. Tap the House icon in the lower left corner
    3. Scroll down until you see icons of all the theme parks with an "All Hours" link
    4. Tap "All Hours" and then choose "Today" or "Park Hours"

    planDisney Pro Tip: If you have a Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option, I recommend you visit Magic Kingdom Park on days when Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is that night. Go to Magic Kingdom until 4:00 PM then hop to another park for an evening adventure. The day crowds will be less because of the shortened day in Magic Kingdom Park.

    Carol, I hope this information helps you to plan for an amazing November. Please write me back directly with any follow-up questions. planDisney and I are here to help.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
