    We are looking to visit DW the week of Thanksgiving 2012. I wanted to know if the parks have regular hours, shorter hours, or extended hours that week. I would also like to know what those hours are.

    Hello Christy!

    You are going to have a blast Thanksgiving Week!  The holiday decorations will be in full swing and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will be going on as well.  I absolutely love spending our holidays at Disney World.

    The park hours for November have not yet been released.  You can click to see the current calendar which has been updated through July 2012.  If you want a sense of what the park hours were for 2011, you can check out archived calendars on unofficial sites like  Those should give you a good idea of what to expect this year, but just keep in mind the hours and party dates will not be exactly the same.  Extended park hours for Magic Kingdom Park tend to be the norm during the holiday season.

    Wishing you a magical Thanksgiving vacation!
