Walt Disney World March 2012 Operating Park Hours Announced

by All Things Mouse Staff on August 16, 2011
Disney ParksWalt Disney World

The Operating Park Hours for Walt Disney World are now known for the month of March 2012.

These hours will be of interest to anyone planning a trip during March 2012 to Disney World, especially those who are going to take advantage of the Free Dining Special Offer during the month. Those individuals will want to know the hours so that they can plan their dining reservations at exactly the 180-day window which Disney uses for its reservation system.

Of note for many, March can be a busy time at the theme parks as many families use the Spring Break vacations of their children’s schools as a time to visit the parks. This does not mean it is not a great time to schedule a trip to Disney World, it just means that you do need to plan your time carefully. It also means that the Disney Parks are typically open for more hours in order to accommodate the additional crowds.

The two water parks of Disney World are not shown on the calendars below. However, their hours are easy enough to remember. Disney’s Blizzard Beach is open everyday of the month from 10AM-5PM. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is down for refurbishment the first part of the month but is scheduled to open for operation on March 18th when it will also operate daily for the rest of the month from 10AM-5PM.

There are two listings for the park hours below. The first shows the park hours for the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom altogether in a calendar view. The second separates the main parks so that you can see at a glance what each park is open each day.

Also offered on the schedule are the Extra Magic Hours for all of the Walt Disney World theme parks. These are hours when select guests (like those staying at one of the many Disney Resort hotels) can either enter the park one hour before normal park guests, or stay up to three hours later after the park closes for normal guests.

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