Walt Disney World Operating Park Hours for April 2011 Released

Walt Disney World has released their Operating Park Hours for the four main theme parks and the two water parks for the April 2011. These hours are important for those planning a trip in the spring because of the Disney Dining Reservation System.

Disney starts accepting reservations for its sit-down dining locations at the 180-day out mark. This includes not only the restaurants within the four theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom), but it also applies to most of the restaurants located at the Disney resorts and Downtown Disney.

Hours for the water parks are not noted on the calendar, however, they are pretty simple. Both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are open from 10AM-5PM from April 1st through April 16th. Beginning on the 17th through the end of the month, both extend their hours to operate from 10Am-6PM.

The calendar below also notes the EMH hours. EMH stands for Extended Magic Hours and is a special privilege offered to select Disney World guests. For example, any guests staying at one of the many on-property Disney resorts can take advantage of EMH. Simply stated, EMH occurs on select mornings and evenings at the Disney Parks. It offers an opportunity for those that qualify to either get into the park one hour earlier than it opens to the general public, or on select evenings, it allows qualified guests to stay in the parks up to three hours later after it closes to the general public.
