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.
