Walt Disney World April 2012 Operating Park Hours Available Now

Walt Disney World Resort of Florida has released the Operating Park Hours for the four theme parks and two water parks of the resort for the month of April 2012. These April 2012 Operating Hours cover the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon.

The major holiday scheduled to occur during April 2012 happens to be Easter which falls on April 8, 2012. Typically, crowd levels surge around the holiday as families take advantage of school breaks related to Easter. To accommodate the larger crowds, Disney has added extended hours for the first week of the month. Other than that short time frame, crowd levels tend to be more reasonable during the rest of the month making it a great time to visit Walt Disney World.

The calendars below offer the individual hours for the four theme parks in both a calendar style chart as well as individual park listings. This makes it easy to both see all of the operating hours for the theme parks at a glance as well as identify dates which might work best for your vacation plans.

Of note, the calendars do not show the hours for Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach as they are relatively simple without significant change. Both water parks are scheduled to be open from 9AM-6PM beginning on April 1, 2012 through April 14, 2012. Hours on the 15th change to 10AM-5PM which is maintained through the rest of the month.

The calendars do offer Extra Magic Hours for each theme park. These are additional hours available to select guests when a park either opens one hour early or stays open up to three hours after normal closing time. Typically, the Extra Magic Hours are only available to those guests who are staying at one of the on-property Disney resorts, although select other hotels also participate in the program.

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