    Will May hours change?? They are very different from this month

    Hi, Haley! You've brought an excellent planning question to our group! I'm happy to provide some help as you continue planning for your May visit!

    The Walt Disney World Resort publishes operating hours for the Disney Parks several months in advance on their park operating hours calendar! Those calendars are very helpful as Guests plan their visit! However, I strongly encourage you to check the operating hours calendar frequently as park hours are always subject to change. The pattern that I've noticed over the past several months is that "standard" operating hours are posted first. As time passes, it is not unusual to see the hours updated to reflect additional hours for the parks!

    Haley, don't forget that Guests are permitted to get in line for an attraction up to one-minute prior to park closing time. As long as you're in line, you can still experience the attraction even if the park has reached closing time. Another tip is to visit Disney Springs in the evening after the parks close! Disney Springs often remains open later than the Disney Parks!

    The operating hours of parks can certainly impact a Guest's park-planning strategy, so please be sure to check the park operating hours calendar often as you continue dreaming of your magical vacation! Feel free to visit us again if you have any more questions! We're always happy to help!
