    why are the parks open longer during some months and not others ? What kind of park hours can I expect in Late April and early May 2012?

    Hi Sheri!

    Walt Disney World park hours adjust with the seasons and the crowd levels. Typically, the peak attendance times will see the longest park hours. That way, no matter how crowded it gets, hopefully everyone gets to enjoy their favorite rides and attractions!

    Looking at this past late April/early May, which may or may not be an indicator depending on when Spring Break and Easter fall in 2012, the parks were scheduled to open between 8 and 9 am most days and were open as late 10pm. A few dates even saw hours until midnight.

    Hope this helps!
