    Many on this board have said that they want their longer park hours back. I know in the 70s & 80s the parks were open very late, but when did the decrease occur?

    I have copied a portion of Deb Wills' weekly email here relating to WDW circa 1995...

    -----quote-----

    This month we consulted Birnbaum's Walt Disney World 1995 -- The
    Official Guide and found some interesting tidbits:

    PARK HOURS: Epcot was usually open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., the
    Magic Kingdom from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the Disney-MGM Studios
    from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (EDITOR'S NOTE: I didn't realize the
    parks all opened later back then!)

    -----end of quote----

    Back in 95, the hours were about the same as they are now. Interesting.

    When did E-Nights start? One of the complaints is that E-nights may have replaced longer park hours.

    I'll say with FP I'm probably seeing as much as I did with the longer park hours.

    E-nights began in the mid 90's (94 or 95 I beleive).

    Later than that, the first one was in June 1997.
