May 2012 Disney World Operating Park Hours

The Operating Park Hours for Walt Disney World Resort of Florida is now available for the month of May 2012. Included in these listings are the hours for the four theme parks – Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Hours are also available for the two water parks – Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach.

These hours will likely be of interest to many who may be lucky enough to schedule a trip to Disney World before the summer season really begins. Those that can should find nice weather and relatively lighter crowds, especially in comparison to the following month of June when many schools will be finishing up their typical school year and families begin taking their summer vacations.

Those looking to book a trip around the Memorial Day holiday during the month of May 2012 will also find these hours useful. Holidays can find large crowds at the parks, but it can still be a great time to visit as long as one knows to expect the crowds and plans accordingly.

Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach hours are not shown on the calendars below. However, they are relatively easy to remember. Both parks will be operating from 10AM-5PM from the 1st of May until May 24th. Then, the hours will be extended for the holiday weekend beginning on the 25th with 9AM-5PM running through the end of the month.

The calendars do offer Extra Magic Hours for each theme park. These are additional hours available to select guests when a park either opens one hour early or stays open up to three hours after normal closing time. Typically, the Extra Magic Hours are only available to those guests who are staying at one of the on-property Disney resorts, although select other hotels also participate in the program.

To find Park Hours for other months, see the All Things Mouse Disney Park Hours page. Disneyland Hours are also available there.
