With no explanation given by officials at Walt Disney World, the evening Extra Magic Hours (EMH) will apparently be shortened by one hour beginning in 2013. Currently, evening EMH runs three hours past normal park closing on select nights at one of the four theme parks of Disney World.

The change does not affect Extra Magic Hours in the remaining months of this year. Disney still lists the three hour window in its park hours through December. Continue reading “Evening Extra Magic Hours To Be Cut One Hour at Disney World” »
