EPCOT & Disney’s Animal Kingdom Are Open For One Extra Hour Sept. 26

What we thought was maybe a glitch, we previously shared that Disney’s Animal Kingdom is open for one extra hour this Sunday, September 20. At the time of sharing that news, that was the only day and park with the extended hour. Well, today it seems Disney has updated their park hours once again, this time showing EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom will remain open for one extra hour on September 26.


When visiting the Walt Disney World website for park hours, you’ll see on Sunday, September 26, EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are open for one extra hour:

  • EPCOT: Open 11am – 8pm on Sept. 26 (current normal park hours 11am – 7pm). Park hours for EPCOT beginning Nov. 27 shift 12pm – 8pm.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Open 9am – 6pm on Sept. 20 & Sept. 26 (normal park hours 9am to 5pm)

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
