Disney Extended Evening Hours

Hey Disney vacationers! As we wave goodbye to the whirlwind that was 2023, let’s talk about something exciting coming up in early 2024 – the return of a more normal Disney Extended Evening Hours schedule! If you’re planning a stay at a Disney Deluxe Resort or Villa, you’re in for a treat with this amazing perk.

What’s the Buzz About Disney Extended Evening Hours?

Imagine having more time to enjoy your favorite Disney theme parks – that’s exactly what Disney Extended Evening Hours offer. On select nights, guests at Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, and other select hotels get extra time to experience the magic at either Magic Kingdom or EPCOT. This popular benefit is set to continue throughout 2024, so there’s plenty of time to plan your visit.

More Disney, More Fun!

Combining extended evening hours with early theme park entry means you get to maximize your Disney adventure. Think about all those extra rides, the magical moments, and the memories you’ll be making!

An Exclusive Perk for Deluxe Guests

If you’re staying at one of the Deluxe Resorts or Villas, you get an additional perk – the chance to join virtual queues for some of the most popular attractions.

  • At 6:00 PM on nights with Extended Evening Hours at EPCOT, you can join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Over at Magic Kingdom, the same opportunity applies to TRON Lightcycle / Run. How cool is that?
