As Guests are preparing for summer holidays in Walt Disney World this year, many Disney fans prefer waiting until non-peak months to visit, to avoid crowds and the Florida heat.
With that being said, now Guests who look forward to visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth in the fall can plan ahead as Disney has released theme park hours for Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the month of September!
Plan Ahead For Your Disney Trip
I personally love to plan my own Walt Disney World trips, and my biggest advice for anyone who is a first-timer is to plan far in advance. All four Disney theme park hours differ so depending on your plans, it is best to check the calendar and decide which Park is best to visit. According to the Walt Disney World website, Disney has released theme park and Park Hopping hours for the first two weeks of September.
Looking forward to fireworks? Want to know what days are booked for Disney After Hours Boo Bash? Below are the official theme park hours for Magic Kingdom from September 1 through 11.

One of Disney’s biggest events, the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival, is back this year, and now Disney fans can plan to eat and drink around the world far in advance. Here are the following hours Disney has released so far for September.
- September 1 to 11: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with Park Hopping Hours from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Home to Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of Walt Disney World’s most crowded theme parks. Not to mention amazing attractions such as the Tower of Terror and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!
To avoid the crowds, many diehard Disney fans prefer to go when children are back in school and when the summer holidays end. September may just be the perfect time to visit this specific park, and here are the following hours.
- September 1 to 11: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., with Park Hopping Hours 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Spending a day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is unlike any other Disney theme park. With animals around every corner, this Disney Park actually feels like you’ve been transported to Africa and Asia! If you aren’t already aware, Disney just announced an amazing new daytime show called Disney KiteTails for the 50th anniversary celebration on October 1.
If you want to head to Disney’s Animal Kingdom before then, here are the most current hours on the Walt Disney World website.
- September 1 to 11: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., with Park Hopping Hours from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
