While many have not even considered planning their summer trips yet, Walt Disney World is already preparing for beyond back-to-school time. The Operating Park Hours for the four theme parks of Walt Disney World are now available for the month of October 2012.

Hours included in the calendar below cover the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Hours for the two water parks (Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon) are not yet known but they have run from 10AM-5PM each day in the past according to the historical park hours.

October can be a great time to visit Disney World. Crowd levels are generally very manageable and the weather can be outstanding. Highs still generally allow for water parks during the day with maybe a light jacket required at night.

October also features many of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties held on select nights at the Magic Kingdom. These Halloween parties are special ticket events meaning they require a ticket separate from general admission. However, those who attend are offered a unique visit including Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade, Happy HalloWishes, special character greetings, Halloween themed lighting and music and even trick-or-treating opportunities. Official dates for the party have not been issued but it can almost be a sure bet it will be held on those nights that the Magic Kingdom closes for general admission at 7PM – the parties typically run from 7PM-12AM.

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.
