Walt Disney World Releases December 2010 Operating Park Hours

Walt Disney World has released their park hours schedule for the month of December 2010 which should really excite those possible Disney guests who are planning a trip to WDW for the Christmas through New Year’s season.

The hours we have cover all four of the main theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studio and Animal Kingdom) and the two water parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon). Speaking of the water parks, Blizzard Beach is open the typical 10AM – 5PM all month long while Typhoon Lagoon is closed the entire month for refurbishment.

We have noted Walt Disney World’s Extra Magic Hours (EMH) on the calendar as well. EMH signifies additional park hours for select guests – most notably all of those staying at one of the twenty-plus on-property resorts of Walt Disney World. These bonus hours are just one of the benefits provided to those who stay on-property. As an explanation, EMH allows qualified guests to enter either one hour before normal park opening, or stay up to three hours after normal park closing at select parks most days. These additional hours give guests an opportunity to catch some of the more popular rides and attractions when the park crowd numbers are slightly lower than normal.
