October 2013 Park Hours for Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World

All Things Mouse now has the complete operating park hours of October 2013 for the theme parks of the Walt Disney World Resort of Florida. Included in these park hours are the opening and closing times for the theme parks of Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.

October is generally a very nice time to plan a visit to Disney World and this one in 2013 should be of no exception. Crowd levels during the month are typically quite low, especially when compared to a visit during peak season.

The month is also a time in which you can take in special activities and decorations related to the holiday of Halloween. One special event is the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party held on select nights at the Magic Kingdom. Specific dates for the party have not yet been officially announced by Disney, however, they can be inferred from the park hours calendar below. The party will more than likely be held on the nights in which the Magic Kingdom is scheduled to close at 7PM.

That is because Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is usually offered from 7PM-12AM. This is a hard ticket event, meaning if you would like to attend, you would need to purchase a ticket just for the party as general admission tickets would not work. For additional information, see last year’s 2012 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party post.

Looking at the weather for October in Disney World finds it extremely moderate. The average high temperature during the month of October comes in at 84 degrees with the average low still quite nice at 66 degrees. Average rainfall during the month is only 2.52 inches. For comparison, this is half the average rainfall of the previous month, September, and a third of the average rainfall of the month before that, August.

With the weather, it may be possible to sneak in a trip to one of the water parks of Walt Disney World including Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach. Their hours for October 2013 are not shown below but both are scheduled to operate each day from 10AM-5PM.

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.

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