Walt Disney World Will Reduce Theme Park Hours

Walt Disney World is making some more changes to the theme park after re-opening just a month ago.

The Orlando, Florida based amusement park announced today that their hours will be changing, starting in September.

Both The Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios will cut back an hour of operation, and Epcot is cutting back by two hours. Meanwhile, Animal Kingdom is losing an hour in the morning and an hour at the end of the day.

The park has experienced low attendance since re-opening due to the coronavirus pandemic. After re-opening, many safety protocols were put into place including visitors ages two and older required to wear a face mask at all times, except for when eating or drinking.

Other changes included requiring visitors to make reservations for each park and reducing capacity on rides

See below for the new hours:

  • Magic Kingdom: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Epcot: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Hollywood Studios: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Animal Kingdom: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Recently, the park also announced that three rides will be closing permanently.
