Those watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on ABC were the first to officially hear about Disney’s plans to have two parks open for twenty-four hours on Leap Day! Beginning at 6AM on February 29, 2012, both the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World and Disneyland will be open for twenty-four hours straight. Officially, Disney calls the promotional special “One More Disney Day.”
As Leap Day only comes every four years, the additional day provides Disney with an opportunity to try something unique and new. In fact it is touted as the first time both parks will run the twenty-four hour special on the same day.
Along with the “One More Disney Day” offered on Leap Day, both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort have initiated a new special offer. This special offer entitles qualified packages to an extra day (and night) for free.
This special offer must be booked by January 31st and is valid for most arrivals between February 26 and March 10, 2012 at both resorts. Qualified packages must include at least a 3-night hotel stay and 3 day park tickets. To that, Disney will add an extra night of hotel and one more day in the parks at no additional charge.
Finally, Disney is also offering a sweepstakes in association with the One More Disney Day promotion. The One More Disney Day website offers a chance to enter the sweepstakes for one of 60 vacation packages for four to either Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort. You may sign up once per day for the sweepstakes.
Those thinking of a trip during this time will want to check out the complete Disney Park Hours page! It offers the hours for all the theme parks of both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
