Christmas and New Year’s Eve are coming sooner than you think, especially for those families planning a trip to Disney World in December. For those people, we now have the December 2015 Walt Disney World Park Hours available here on All Things Mouse.

Found in these hours are the opening and closing times for the four theme parks of Walt Disney World including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Knowing these hours in advance gives an edge to the December guests in their trip planning.

These guests can consider which parks to hit first thing in the morning and how late they might want to stay each evening. It also helps for those guests park hopping as they can better maximize their time.

In addition, Disney dining lovers typically need to plan their reservations far in advance. By knowing how early or late each park is open, they can better select from the available time slots.

If you are planning to go in December, there are a few major things to consider. First is crowd levels. If you are going earlier in the month, you are lucky because the crowd levels are at some of their lowest levels for the year making for an ideal time to visit.

Those opting for later December visits will definitely see more crowds, but that does not matter for some as they take advantage of Christmas / Winter breaks. Either way, you are sure to have a great time.

Thinking of Christmas, also keep in mind that Disney offers Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party on select nights in the Magic Kingdom throughout December. Scheduled nights for the hard ticket event include December 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17 and 18. Only those with a party ticket will be allowed to stay in the park past its scheduled closing time for regular guests.

Weather in December is a bit cooler with average highs of 73° and average lows of 50°. Rain is less prevalent with 2.24 inches falling generally over the entire month.

If the temps do pop up, you may want to consider visiting Disney’s Blizzard Bach which is scheduled to be open 10AM-5PM the entire month. The other Disney water park, Typhoon Lagoon, is closed all of December for refurbishment.

Shown on the calendar below in addition to the standard hours for the four main theme parks are the Extra Magic Hours. These are additional hours select parks are open to qualifying guests. This includes guests staying at one of the many resorts of Disney World.
