December 2011 Walt Disney World Hours Now Available

December 2011 Walt Disney World Operating Park Hours are now available for all four of the Florida based theme parks. This will definitely come as welcome news to those who are planning a Christmas trip to the world as they can now better decide on a strategy for their visit.

Christmas is one of the busiest (if not the busiest) times of the year for Disney World with crowd levels even reaching capacity at times. This does not mean it is not a great time to visit, however. For one thing, many families can more easily plan a trip over Christmas break when their kids are not in school. For another, Disney World offers those who come a special holiday feel as the parks and the resorts are all decked out.

Even if you don’t plan to go during Christmas break, the rest of December can be a great time to visit as the first two weeks of the month are generally considered one of the slowest times for attendance at the parks. This means relatively light crowds and you are still treated to all the holiday decorations. In fact, Disney even offers the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties on select nights at the Magic Kingdom giving you even more of a holiday experience.

The December 2011 Disney World Hours are offered in two formats below. The first is a calendar style showing all four of the theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom) together allowing you to glance at the date and find the hours. The second is a list style with the parks separated.

Not offered on either are the hours for the two Disney World water parks – Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. Those hours have not yet been released by Disney but they typically run from 10AM-5PM during this time of year.

Also offered on the schedule are the Extra Magic Hours for all of the Walt Disney World theme parks. These are hours when select guests (like those staying at one of the many Disney Resort hotels) can either enter the park one hour before normal park guests, or stay up to three hours later after the park closes for normal guests.

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