    Will there be Extended Evening Hours (EEH) for Deluxe & DVC guests in January 2023? I've been planning my trip for 6 months assuming there will be EEH. If they are ending, people need to know before After Hours Events sell out.

    Hey there, Adrian! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great question.

    As a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member with an upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation in early 2023, I have also been super excited to take advantage of the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. While I was equally excited to hear that the Disney After Hours events are returning, the planner in me absolutely understands your frustration with the unknown, and I am happy to answer your question today. 

    Unfortunately, there has been no official announcement on whether or not Extended Evening Theme Park Hours will continue into 2023, and as of now, the current schedule has only been released for dates in December. However, while this is purely speculation, I do see some signs that Extended Evening Theme Park Hours and Disney After Hours could happily coexist! 

    It looks as if Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at Magic Kingdom Park are typically scheduled on Wednesday nights, and the Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom are scheduled on Mondays and Thursdays. Similarly, the two December dates for the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios are on Saturdays, and the Disney After Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios are currently scheduled on Wednesdays and one Sunday. While I don't know if the Extended Evening Hours will continue, this has me hopeful that they can and will! 

    I suggest just keeping a close eye on the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours page on the Walt Disney World website to see if a January schedule will be released. I'll be wishing upon tonight's evening star, for sure, Adrian!

    While I wish I had more answers, I hope this was helpful, Adrian! I hope you have the most magical and memorable vacation ringing in the new year at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Please stop by any time with any planning or DVC questions you may have along the way. 

    You've got a friend in me,
