Magic Kingdom Is Closing EARLY Two Days Next Week

And just like that… another week has come and gone in Disney World!

Magic Kingdom

This past week was an exciting one with the opening of the four remaining 2022 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival booths, the appearance of Mickey pumpkin wreaths in Magic Kingdom, and the opening of the NEW BoardWalk Deli! If you’re heading to Disney World next week, there’s a lot for you to see and do, but there’s some information you’ll need first: let’s take a look at Disney World’s park hours and Park Pass Reservation availability for the week starting August 21st and ending August 27th.

Magic Kingdom Park Hours

Let’s start off with Magic Kingdom. Magic Kingdom will be open from 9AM-11PM on August 21st and 22nd. On August 23rd and on August 26th, Magic Kingdom is open from 8AM to 6PM to accommodate Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Every other day that week (August 24th, 25th, and 27th), the park will be open from 9AM-11PM.


Magic Kingdom will have Extended Evening Hours for guests staying at select Disney World hotels on Wednesday, August 24th from 11PM to 1AM.

EPCOT Park Hours

EPCOT will be open from 8:30AM-9PM every day next week.


There will also be Extended Evening Hours on Monday, August 22nd from 9PM-11PM.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park Hours

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is open next week every day from 8:30AM-9PM.


As a reminder, park hopping starts at 2PM for all guests who have the park hopping ability added to their ticket.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park Hours

And finally, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is open a perfect 12 hours from 8AM-8PM every day next week.


Now that we’ve seen the park hours for next week, let’s take a look at the Park Pass Reservation availability for next week, too!

Park Pass Reservation Availability

Let’s start off with Theme Park Ticket Park Pass Reservation availability. From August 21st to August 26th, Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are both unavailable for Theme Park Ticketholders, so you’ll only be able to make a reservation for EPCOT or Disney’s Animal Kingdom. All four parks are available on August 27th, however.


For guests staying at Select Disney World hotels, Park Pass Reservation Availability is the same as for Theme Park Ticketholders. Magic Kingdom and Hollywood are unavailable Sunday-Friday, and all parks are available on Saturday.


And now it’s time to take a look at the Park Pass Reservation availability for Annual Passholders! For Passholders with the Incredi Pass…


…Sorcerer Pass…


…and Pirate Pass, Park Pass Reservations are wide open next week.


Park Pass Reservations are also wide open for Pixie Dust Passholders, though the weekends are blocked out for these passes.


And that’s when the Disney World parks will be open next week, along with which parks have Park Pass Reservation availability! If you’re heading to Disney World soon, remember that in addition to purchasing tickets, you’ll need to make Park Pass Reservations for each day you plan to be in the parks.

You’ll need a Park Pass Reservation to get into the parks!
