Last month, Disney announced the start of summer park hours for Walt Disney World Resort through mid-June. Now, we’re happy to share that Disney World is adding a bit more magic by extending park hours further into the future — meaning more time to play in the theme parks!

Right now, Disney World has released its park hours for all four parks through June 26. Additionally, the parks have extended previously announced hours for June!

It is worth noting that, although hours at individual parks are reduced as the summer progresses, hours for most of the days are longer than what Disney had previously announced through June 19 for all four theme parks.

With the announcements of the new Creations Shop opening in EPCOT this summer and the recently relaxed restrictions on wearing face masks for socially distanced outdoor photos, many Disney fans are making their way to the Parks this summer. Keep in mind that Disney has limited daily capacity with the new Park Pass System.

Disney Park Passes are organized in three categories — Theme Park Tickets, Select Resort Hotel Guests, and Disney World Annual Passholders — with a limited number of daily reservations for each theme park available within each category. Guest must have both a valid ticket or Annual Pass and a Park Pass for their park of choice on any given day.
