    Hello! I am wondering how flexible the park hours are. The projected park hours are fairly short for my trip in May :( I understand how COVID has impacted the park, but are park hours regularly updated? I would like to make Epcot dining reservations soon!

    Hi there, Charlotte!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    If there's one thing the past year has taught us, it's how to be flexible. With plans, rules, and basic ways of life changing on the daily, we've all had to adapt in SO many ways. Thankfully, Walt Disney World Resort is doing an AMAZING job on helping us Return to a World of Magic with enhanced safety protocols throughout the theme parks and Disney Resorts Collection Hotels. I've personally visited Walt Disney World several times since the reopening, and had wonderful experiences each time!

    For your upcoming vacation in May, I encourage you to keep an eye on the Park Hours each day. I was pleasantly surprised when the hours were extended for our last visit in March! After the hours were extended, I was able to secure a late dinner reservation in one of the parks we'd be visiting, and my teenage daughter was thrilled to be able to stay late in Epcot with her friends each night. (I think she rode Frozen Ever After about a zillion times!) Since there's no specific time frame of when a change might be made to Park Hours, I set a reminder on my phone each morning to log in to the My Disney Experience mobile app with fingers crossed. One morning, I was thrilled to see we'd have more time to make magic in the theme parks on our Spring Break trip.

    I'm sending all my pixie-dusted wishes to you that you'll soon see extended Park Hours for May!
