    Hi! I am planning a vacation to WDW April 23 - April 28. Are there any nights that week that any park will be closing early? Last time we were there, MK closed early for a cast party, of which I was not aware when purchasing and planning my ticket days.

    Hello there, Becky!

    April showers bring EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival flowers! You’ll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during my favorite EPCOT festival. Besides snapping photos alongside the whimsical topiaries, you’ll want to check out the Garden Graze, a Festival Passport that will track your tasting progress. Once you’ve tried five dishes and collected corresponding stamps, you can find a commemorative keepsake upon completing the stroll. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for the most recent updates. 

    I cannot see the Park Hours & Info for the dates of your vacation just yet. Like Princess Tiana, you’re almost there! You can easily check back on your My Disney Experience app by pressing the three horizontal bars in the bottom right corner of the screen and then “Park Hours & Info.” In the past, I’ve seen Walt Disney World Resort theme park hours posted anywhere between 60 to 75 days beforehand, but this varies. Once the information becomes available on the app, you should see the theme park hours, Early Entry hours, Park Hopper Availability, and any attractions that are closed for refurbishment (listed at the bottom). 

    Given the limited availability of theme park reservations, I’d recommend making your theme park reservations at your earliest convenience. If you decide that you want to change your theme park reservations, you can check the theme park reservation availability to see if what you’re hoping for is available. If your desired theme park reservation is available, you can cancel and book a new theme park reservation in your My Disney Experience account by pressing “Manage Reservation” under your existing reservation. 

    From the TRON Lightcycle / Run opening at Magic Kingdom Park to the return of the “Happily Ever After” nighttime spectacular, you have so much to look forward to on your upcoming vacation. Let me know if you need anything else.
    May the magic be with you!
