    Will Disney be extending their park hours during the week of April 17th?

    Hey there, Amy! Welcome to planDisney

    Amy, are you getting so excited? Your trip to the Most Magical Place On Earth is a little over a month away. I bet the countdown is on! 

    I took a look at the Walt Disney World Theme Park hours for the week of April 17, 2022, and from what I can tell the park hours look pretty on par for what they've been lately. I'm seeing that most of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks are closing at 9:00 p.m. with Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park closing a few hours before that which is typical. Park hours are always being adjusted, Amy, so I do recommend checking back as it gets closer to your travel dates. However, the Walt Disney World Theme Park hours for your trip are looking pretty good to me and I wouldn't expect them to be open much later than they already are. 

    If you are a night owl like me, you might be wondering if there is anything to do later in the evening during your Walt Disney World vacation. I'm happy to report that you can enjoy Disney Springs until around 11:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m each night. for some late-night fun. Disney Springs is free to enter and does not require park pass reservations. It's the shopping, dining and entertainment hub of Walt Disney World. In fact, you can find me over there sipping on some wine and enjoying the free live music most nights of my vacations. You can enjoy a late-night bite, a sweet treat or some evening shopping. The night is yours at Disney Springs! 

    I hope this helps, Amy. Remember to keep checking those theme park hours the closer it gets to your vacation because sometimes things do shift around. If I can help answer any other planning questions you might have before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
