    The park hours shows 9AM - 9PM most days and the Extra Magic Hours never extending past 11PM. In the past I know I have stayed in the park until 1 AM or 2 AM during the summer. Does Disney extend their hours at some point during the summer? If so when ?

    Hi Chris!

    Thanks for sending your questions in to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Like you, I have experienced the Extra Magic Hours well past midnight. It is difficult for us to provide you with a precise answer as we don't know the schedules or park hours until they are released on the Walt Disney World website. It has been my experience that the during the busier seasons, the park hours are extended as well as the Extra Magic Hours, however that is not always a guarantee. I would recommend that you continue to check back as this information can change even after it is released. 

    Did you know?: The "Disney After Hours" event was recently introduced. This special ticketed event offers special access to Magic Kingdom where Guests can enjoy 3 hours of little to no wait for 25 of the popular attractions. For more information, including event dates and ticket pricing, visit this page: Disney After Hours.

    It has been a real pleasure assisting you! If there are any other questions you may have, please feel free to send them my way!

    Happy Planning!
