It has also not been stated what the park closing time will be after July 2nd.

  • I hope they consider bringing back evening EMH to Animal Kingdom in the future. Used to be fun even when it was just ITTBAB, Kali River Rapids, Everest, and Dinoland open late. I’m not optimistic it would happen but still hopeful.

  • Any news on other park hours in June? They still seem to be the default hours.
