    What will happen to extended hours for Magic Kingdom, as November 1st falls on a Wednesday and it has been listed as a Not So Scary Halloween Party date. Has this happened in the past? How was it dealt with? This will determine where I’ll be staying.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Eric! Thanks so much for dropping by with your question. 

    As a guest who loves to experience the parks after dark, I appreciate this question. There is just something extra Magical about strolling down Main Street, U.S.A., or through Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge long after the sun has gone down. 

    Now, Eric, I was so excited to see that Extended Evening Theme Park Hours were extended into 2024 for guests staying at deluxe or deluxe villa resorts. In fact, I'm planning to take advantage of this perk later this summer and I can't wait! Now, it's important to note that, unlike Early Theme Park Entry, the evening hours are not every day and I have seen the days of the week this perk is offered change. While the hours for the beginning of November are not yet posted, my best guess is that Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at Magic Kingdom Park will either not be offered during the Halloween season or the day of the week will change to offset Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (which happened in previous years). Eric, I would encourage you to bookmark THIS PAGE so that you can continue to check for posted park hours in the coming weeks and months. 

    Eric, I understand that if you're choosing a Disney Resort Hotel based on Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, it's difficult to do so without hours released. However, please keep in mind that complimentary transportation is available to your onsite resort at the end of the night. For example, this summer my husband and I are staying at Disney's BoardWalk Villas, but will enjoying the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at Magic Kingdom Park. Our plan is to hop on a bus at the end of the evening back to our resort, so even if you aren't at the closest resort to Magic Kingdom Park, you can be sure that Mickey will make sure you get "home!"

    No matter which Disney Resort Hotel you choose, I'll be wishing on a star that you have a pixie-dusted stay. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions.
