    Hello, I’m going to Hollywood Studios on December 24, EPCOT the 25th, and Magic Kingdom the 26th, what are the regular ticket hours open? I have been informed online that the park can close earlier for regular ticket buyers and was confused about the hours

    Hi Olivia! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Christmastime at Walt Disney World Resort is certainly enchanting, and you're going to be there at the perfect time to celebrate! Whether you're hoping to stop by the giant Gingerbread House at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, take a photo with the 60-foot tall Christmas tree in Magic Kingdom, or stroll through the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays and listen to the Candlelight Processional, you're sure to be busy with holly, jolly fun throughout your visit. 

    I've checked the Hours & Events Calendar for the dates of your magical vacation and found the following:

    Saturday, December 24 - Disney's Hollywood Studios Regular Park Hours: 8:30 am - 9 p.m.
    Sunday, December 25 - EPCOT Regular Park Hours: 9 a.m. - 9:30 p.m.
    Monday, December 26 - Magic Kingdom Regular Park Hours: 9 a.m. - 11 p.m. 

    If you are going to be a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel you'll be able to join us in the Parks for an extra half hour each morning right before the scheduled Park opening time with Early Theme Park Entry.  For example, if you're staying at a Disney Resort you'll be able to enter Hollywood Studios at 8 a.m. on the 24th, EPCOT at 8:30 a.m., and so on.

    On select nights, Guests of Deluxe Disney Resorts are able to stay out at the Parks late with Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, which might be what you're referring to.  There are no Extended Evening Theme Park Hours on the days on which you plan to visit each Park, so you'll be able to stay right until the Parks close down for the night! 

    I hope you have a wonderful time decking the halls at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
