    We are visiting for a quick trip in Jan. I've seen different hours for MK on January 23 and was wondering if there is a special event going on. We are deciding on going to the park either Jan. 22 or preferably Jan. 23

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Wendy!

    There's nothing like a quick trip to Walt Disney World Resort to get the year started with a smile; nicely planned!

    For the latest official schedule, check out the Walt Disney World Resort calendar; there, you'll see that the current operating hours for Magic Kingdom Park on Monday, January 23rd are 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Should you decide to go on Sunday, January 22nd, Magic Kingdom Park is open from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. that day. As we get closer to your date of arrival, you may notice that posted park hours may be adjusted, so check back from time to time to confirm.

    You can also check information such as park hours, dining reservation availability, attraction wait times and so much more using the super-convenient My Disney Experience mobile app. From the main menu there, click on "Park Hours & Info" and advance the calendar to the month of your trip. Click on the date you're considering attending, and all park hours will be listed on that screen.

    During the time of your stay, there is a special event occurring at Walt Disney World, but it's over at Epcot. There, for the first time ever, Epcot International Festival of the Arts takes place Fridays through Mondays from January 13th through February 20th. What a treat!

    Send more questions as you plan your visit, Wendy; we love to help!
