    Hello! I was trying to make theme park reservations, and wanted to look at the hours that the parks were open each day before making my decision. They only have hours posted up through may 1st 2021 currently.

    Hello there, Jennifer! Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out and ask an excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation question! 

    The recently-debuted Disney Park Pass system is an easy-to-use feature that allows Guests to reserve their visits to a particular theme park while also promoting physical distancing and safety during your visit! Prior to making your reservations, you will need to purchase your desired theme park tickets and connect them to your My Disney Experience account. From there, you will be free to pick and choose which theme parks you would like to visit through the Disney Park Pass system. Before purchasing your tickets, you can also check out the reservation availability through this interactive calendar connected to the Disney Park Pass system

    Guests can also take advantage of the Park Hopper option once more to visit more than one theme park per day! Park Hopper hours will begin at 2:00 pm each day and continue until the park’s scheduled closing time. In order to take advantage of this perk, Guests must make a theme park reservation for their first park and enter this park prior to visiting any additional parks. Parking Hopping is a great way to experience even more magic in a single day during your visit!

    Recently, theme park hours have been released approximately six weeks in advance which means that the most recent update included dates up until May 1st, 2021. This means that dates into the month of May will likely be released in the next few weeks. Historically, the theme parks hours in May are not too different from those in April so you can always use the hours from the week before your trip as a tentative guide! 

    Keep in mind, if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will soon be able to enter any of the four theme parks up to 30-minutes before their official opening times every day of the week! This expanded benefit will allow Guests to be more flexible in their planning while also promoting better spread attendance across all four parks. This perk is supposed to begin in the near future so be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog website for any updates! 

    I hope you have an absolutely magical time visiting Walt Disney World Resort this summer! Please let us know if we can assist you with planning any other portions of your vacation!
