PHOTOS: Experience Extended Evening Hours Only for Deluxe Resort Guests at Magic Kingdom
Guests staying at Walt Disney World Deluxe Resorts, Deluxe Villas, and other select hotels can now experience extended evening hours on select days at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. We attended the first evening offering at Magic Kingdom on October 6 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Wait times weren’t too bad at 9:00 p.m. as the park closed for regular guests. The highest wait was for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at 45 minutes, though that went down later in the night.
Splash Mountain and Jungle Cruise had longer waits, which makes sense as they would not be available during extended evening hours. Here’s the list of attractions advertised as available during extended evening hours at Magic Kingdom:
“it’s a small world”
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
Country Bear Jamboree
Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Mad Tea Party
Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor
Peter Pan’s Flight
Pirates of the Caribbean
Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Swiss Family Treehouse
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room
By 10 p.m., most wait times were between 5 and 15 minutes.
Space Mountain had a 15 minute wait.
There was a PhotoPass photographer outside.
Tomorrowland Speedway had a 5 minute wait.
So did Mad Tea Party.
There was practically no one in Storybook Circus, where Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Barnstormer both had 5 minute waits.
Guests could also enjoy Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station.
Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid had a 5 minute wait.
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train settled to a 35 minute wait.
Some snack carts and counter-service restaurants were open. In Fantasyland, guests could visit Storybook Treats for ice cream.
Aloha Isle, Casey’s Corner, and Sleepy Hollow all had mobile order available throughout the evening.
Prince Charming Regal Carrousel had a 5 minute wait.
The exact wait time for Mickey’s PhilharMagic depends on when you walk up, but My Disney Experience advertised a 10 minute wait for the 12 minute show.
Peter Pan’s Flight had one of the longer wait times, between 20 and 30 minutes throughout the night.
Across from Peter Pan’s Flight, guests could board “it’s a small world” in 5 minutes.
The Haunted Mansion was also a bit more popular with a 15 minute wait.
Like Mickey’s PhilharMagic, the wait for Country Bear Jamboree was approximately 10 minutes.
Big Thunder Mountain had a low wait time of 5 minutes.
Pirates of the Caribbean was also 5 minutes.
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room was advertising a 10 minute wait between shows.
Aloha Isle Refreshments was mostly empty, so it would be a great time to get a DOLE Whip.
