    I see Magic Kingdom is sometimes open to all guests as late as 11pm. When does Disney tuoically decide to stay open later than 9pm? Our trip is coming up soon and my fingers are still crossed in hopes of them deciding to stay open later than 9pm.

    Hi Danielle,

    We are delighted to see you stopping by planDisney with a question!

    While I cannot definitely say when Walt Disney World® Resort theme parks will extend theme park hours, I do suggest that you check the park hours to see what they are for your entire visit. If you are staying at a Disney Deluxe or Deluxe Villa resort hotel, you will have access to extended evening theme park hours. It looks like EPCOT will have extended evening hours one day during your visit!

    I do realize that you may have other plans. Consider making advanced dining reservations. It looks like you are within your booking window, so, if you have not made any, now is the time. Availability can be limited for the more popular dining locations, particularly character dining experiences. A few of our favorite restaurants are Chef Mickey's, Cinderella's Royal Table, and Space 220 Lounge.

    Given that you are looking for later park hours, I will suggest that you also consider a Disney After Hours Event. It looks like there will be a Disney After Hours event on May 9th which may be during your visit. So, double-check the dates and availability. If you have never done an event, I always suggest that you try a new experience!

    Danielle, keep making those plans. If you have not yet considered matching shirts for your crew, I highly recommend. Stop by the Disney Store to check options. And one last tip - visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival during your stay. I am so excited for you - May is a beautiful time of year to visit! Your arrival date is almost here! 

    Magic and memories,
