    Will the parks be open extra early the week before Christmas.? Trying to figure if there will be more reservations open for breakfast than there are now. I appreciate knowing what was done last year at that time. Thanks for your time and information.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mary Sandra. We just love helping you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     The holiday season is always a magical time of the year, but it's exceptionally so at "The Most Magical Place on Earth!" At this time, all four theme parks are scheduled to open at 9:00 AM the week before Christmas. It's certainly possible that the calendar could be updated between now and then to reflect earlier opening hours, but there's no guarantee that will happen. I can tell you that last year, Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park officially opened at 8:00 AM in the few days leading up to December 25. Hopefully, that means that we can expect earlier opening times during your stay! My best advice is to keep an eye on the December 2019 calendar that's posted on the Walt Disney World Resort website. If any updates are made to the park hours schedule, you'll see them there!

     To maximize your time in the theme parks, take advantage of Extra Magic Hours. This is just one of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel! Morning Extra Magic Hours are offered several mornings during your upcoming stay. 

     I hope this was helpful, Mary Sandra. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
