    Can you tell me why Disney parks are closing so early from April 26-May 5th 2021? Well the entire month of April Magic Kingdom is closing at 6. Will the hours change closer to those dates?

    Hey there Shanna!

    It’s so nice to see you here visiting us at planDisney, welcome! You must be so excited about this visit. Have you already made your dining reservations? If you haven’t, I highly recommend Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant for lunch. Not only is it a family favorite, but the car-shaped booths/tables make the whole experience so much fun!

    April is my most favorite time to visit the parks, I just love everything about it! Plus, it happens to be right in the middle of the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, which is truly a sight to see. I do see the first week of April to have extended park hours. I also remember looking at the March hours a few weeks ago and they too had early closure times. I did, however, notice that the hours for March were extended to accommodate those spring break visits, earlier this month! I’m not sure if the same will happen in April, but I do recommend frequently checking the website for updates on park hours. 

    I find that my family is able to enjoy the most of each park we visit by arriving early. We love to rope drop (open) each park during our trips. I feel like we are able to do and see a lot in the mornings. Plus, my Mouseketeer's are early risers so mornings work out the best for us. 

    I hope this helps answer your question, Shanna. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can help you with. Have a magical trip!
