With the abundance of Disney After Hours special ticket events and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party nights going on at the Magic Kingdom this year, it appears that evening Extra Magic Hours may be nixed for the entire month of October.
Typically, evening Extra Magic Hours take place on Wednesday nights at the Magic Kingdom. And currently, that’s how it is listed on the official Walt Disney World calendar through September 25th… that is, until you get to the October dates. As many plan their Walt Disney World vacations far in advance, many have noticed that the first Wednesday in October (10/2) lists only morning Extra Magic Hours, (more like extra magic hour,) from 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
While the rest of the calendar has yet to be populated, we’ve yet to see what will become of evening Extra Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom for the rest of October. Currently, the only park offering evening Extra Magic Hours in October is Epcot, as usual, on Tuesday nights. (Just in time for Epcot Forever.)
The official Walt Disney World website’s Extra Magic Hours page still lists the attractions available at the Magic Kingdom on evening Extra Magic Hours, and does not officially state that they are doing away with these permanently (if at all), so stay tuned for any changes.
