The magic is happening at Walt Disney World, but starting in September your visits may be cut a little short. The theme parks announced this past weekend that hours will be reduced beginning Sept. 8.

Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios Epcot and Animal Kingdom will all be losing an hour or two every day in light of the recent drop in attendance attributed to the pandemic.

The parks are mostly closing earlier, with the exception of Animal Kingdom which is also opening later. The new park hours will be:

  • Magic Kingdom: 9 to 6 p.m.

  • Hollywood Studios: 10 to 7 p.m

  • Epcot: 11 to 7 p.m.

  • Animal Kingdom: 9 to 5 p.m.
