    Do park hours ever change after they are initially posted? We are visiting during MNSSHP and other than party nights, MK closes at 9 pm without any late night magic hours. I'm planning to make ADR's and any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Amy,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so happy to see that you'll be back for another magical Disney vacation this fall! With Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and the brand new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening August 29th, September will be a great time to visit!

    I'm a planner by nature, and one of my very favorite things to plan is a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I love that Disney releases park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and even parade and fireworks show times around 180 days in advance so I can begin putting together the perfect itinerary for my next Disney adventure. With that said, though, I always look at any park hours with a grain of salt because I know that they're subject to change. The good news is that any changes are almost always in our favor. They might open a theme park earlier or keep it open later at night, and these changes could be announced at any time. I'd encourage you to go ahead and make your dining reservations based on the park hours when they're released, but just know that those could change at some point prior to your visit.

    Please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your visit, Amy, and have a truly magical vacation!
