in Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

This year has brought many changes to the Walt Disney World Resort and all the other Disney Parks around the world. As more Guests start to be comfortable with visiting the Disney Parks, the crowd levels continue to grow is a safe manner with a limited capacity.

On a typical year, the Disney Parks are busier with the summer tourism and again when the holiday festivities start up towards the end of September. Knowing that Disney fans love spending the fall and winter season inside the parks with special events and treats, Disney World has extended Park Hours on dates that are expected to be busier than others.
