Disney’s Animal Kingdom will open at 8:00 a.m. instead of 9:00 a.m. from December 24 through 30, with early entry at 7:30 a.m. Evening hours have been extended to 8:00 p.m. from December 25 (Christmas Day) through 30. The park will still close at 7:00 p.m. on December 24 (Christmas Eve).

Extended evening hours for select resort hotel guests will take place on December 28. Because the park will now close to regular guests at 8:00 p.m., extended evening hours will now last from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Read more about extended evening hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
