Disney World Fall Hours Released: What About Holiday Events?

in Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World Resort has continued to update the calendar to include the theme park operating hours for fall. Now, we can see the park hours for Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom through November 7.

As you can see in the calendar below, the general operating hours for each theme park are as follows:

  • Magic Kingdom: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily
  • EPCOT: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily

But upon further examination of the calendar, we have no new information pertaining to whether holiday events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party or the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will be held this year. If Disney continues the pattern of canceling separate ticketed events in 2020, then there will likely not be any Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party events this fall and winter (the separate ticketed event typically starts in November). But if this year’s Taste of Food and Wine is any indication, then perhaps a modified version of EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays could still occur.

Below is Disney’s most up-to-date statement regarding seasonal events:

Looking ahead to the holiday season, this may spark questions about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, which includes the Candlelight Processional. We are monitoring our new environment closely, and will make a decision on these events as we continue to learn more from government and health officials. As always, our goal is to explore every option and look at ways in which we can still host events and festivals full of Disney magic, while still operating responsibly with the health and safety of our guests and cast members in mind.

We’ll continue to monitor the operations of Walt Disney World Resort as more information is released. For now, we hope every person planning to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth has a wonderful visit.
