December 2012 Walt Disney World Hours

The Operating Park Hours for the Walt Disney World Resort are now available for the month of December 2012. These park hours will be of infinite interest to anyone planning a trip to Disney World during the holiday season.

Knowing the hours in advance of your trip helps you to plan which parks you may want to visit on certain days. A little planning ahead of time could save you a lot of headache later.

For example, let’s say you want to visit Magic Kingdom on your arrival day, but you are only getting in at 4PM. If the Magic Kingdom closes early that day for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you may want to consider a visit to another park instead to maximize your park entries instead of wasting the time to go to the Magic Kingdom when it will be closing at 7PM.

Hours also help you plan your dining reservations. If Disney’s Hollywood Studios closes at 7PM, you will not be able to reserve an 8:30 PM reservation at the Brown Derby.

Shown in the calendar below are the hours for all four of the theme parks of Walt Disney World. This includes the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Hours are also known for the two water parks of Disney World, but are not shown in the calendar. Typhoon Lagoon is closed all month for refurbishment with Disney’s Blizzard Beach open daily from 10AM-5PM.

The calendar below also offers Extra Magic Hours. EMH are extra hours the parks are open for qualified guests. Typically, these guests are those staying at one of the many resorts of Walt Disney World.

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