Extended Evening Hours Returns to Hollywood Studios

WDW Vacation Planning News

For two weeks in December 2022, guests staying at Disney Vacation Club resorts will be able to enjoy late night hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Tower of Terror Night

In October 2021, Walt Disney World introduced Extended Evening Hours. Guests staying at Deluxe hotels--including all DVC resorts in central Florida--can enjoy up to 2 hours of late night access to select Disney theme parks. The perk is generally limited to Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. However, on rare occasions it is expanded to include Disney's Hollywood Studios

On the nights of Thursday December 15 and 22, eligible Disney resort guests will again be treated to late night access to Disney's Hollywood Studios. On both evenings, the park is scheduled to close at 9:00pm to day guests. However it will remain open from 9-11:00pm for Extended Evening Hours. 

This comes in addition to the regular EPCOT and Magic Kingdom late nights, which are scheduled for every Monday and Wednesday (respectively) throughout the month. 

Attractions expected to be available during the late night hours include:

  • Alien Swirling Saucers
  • Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
  • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
  • Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
  • Slinky Dog Dash
  • Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
  • Toy Story Mania!
  • Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Extended Evening Hours was introduced in conjunction with Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary celebration. The event will officially conclude on March 31, 2023. There has been no word on whether or not Extended Evening Hours will continue beyond that date. 

Guests at all Walt Disney World resorts currently receive 30 minutes of Early Entry access to each of the four theme parks. Valid theme park admission is required. Extended Evening Hours and Early Entry are not considered Disney Vacation Club perks. Guests do not need to qualify for Membership Magic in order to participate.
