    I plan on attending Disney for a few days in December at magic kingdom and Hollywood studios december 4 and 5th! What time will the parks be open those days and which nighttime shows will be running? Thanks!

    Hiya, Joe!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Oh boy, how exciting that you will be visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth during the merriest time of year.  Visiting Walt Disney World during the holidays is extra magical as the excitement of the season, extra special holiday decor, and pixie dust of Disney come together for a very special time.  

    Joe, I double-checked the Walt Disney World Hours & Events Calendar. Currently, the information for opening times and scheduled Fireworks and Nighttime Entertainment aren't posted yet.  Right now, it appears to be showing through November 12th, so I recommend marking your calendar to check it in about two to three weeks to see if the early December dates are posted. Keep in mind, however, that these times and information is subject to change. Sometimes, weather can impact the Fireworks or Nighttime shows or hours can change.  So I would also check it again five days from your arrival date and on the day of your visit. 

    Now, Joe, I recommend that while you are visiting Magic Kingdom, add some extra merry to your magic with Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!  This is a very special event where you will enjoy special treats, enchanting entertainment, Characters in their holiday best, and access to attractions with shorter wait times.  

    I hope this helps you, Joe! If you have any further questions, stop back and see me.  Have a magical time!

    See ya real soon,
