The Walt Disney World Resort operating calendar has been updated to show that Magic Kingdom will not be offering the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours benefit for guests staying at select Walt Disney World and affiliate hotels in late September and October.
Magic Kingdom No Longer Participating in Extended Evening Hours for September and October
According to the calendar, the first day of Extended Evening Hours for Magic Kingdom is September 6, followed by September 13. The final day listed for the park is September 20, and no other Extended Evening Hours dates are listed beyond that.
It is possible that this perk could return to Magic Kingdom after Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has concluded its run. With the public calendar only displaying hours through October 16, we’ll have to wait a bit for an update.
Instead, guests can enjoy the benefit at EPCOT or Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as previously announced.
