    Hello, what are the park hours for Dec 31 and January 1? thanks

    Hi there, Brissa!

    I am so glad you stopped back by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  With your vacation coming soon after what will probably be a busy holiday season, you are smart to think – and plan ahead – for your days at the theme parks!

    The most up to date park hours calendar can be found online here!  Park hours are subject to change, so I always recommend checking it closer to your trip just to ensure something hasn’t changed!  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, be sure to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom on December 31, 2018 and Epcot on January 1, 2019.  Extra Magic Hours are specifically reserved for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and gives Guests access to the theme parks ahead of the regularly scheduled opening hours.

    Don’t forget to download the My Disney Experience Mobile app to your smartphone prior to your vacation to have handy access to wait times, theme park maps and my favorite thing EVER – mobile food ordering!  I love being able to pre-order our meals and then just pick them up, which is always helpful when traveling with littles.  Or even adults who don’t want to waste a single second.

    Please come back with any other questions you may have as your planning continues!
