    I thought I read some where that park hours usually change or are updated about one month before. Anyone have an idea when they will update July hours?
    I know they can change any time even the day of but hasn't there been some sort of pattern lately for the month before changes?

    Impossible to predict these things because there is no pattern, but Disney did a pretty big June and 7/3-7/4 hours update on Friday 5/11. I’ve been ‘assuming’ a July update should be coming out sometime soon.

    Thank you! I know they need to update AK closing, at least I think they will. It closes at 9:00. You never know though.

    I don't know that they ever extended hours last July. When I look at the past times, last year MK was open until 10pm most of the month. I don't ever remember it being that early in the summer.

    Yes they started closing early last year. Surely they will keep AK open later then 9:00.

    Correct. Most of us are impatiently waiting to see what extends beyond that week

    I'm guessing MK will not change. I really miss the late closing.

    Here's hoping the extended July hours (1030 closing) for DHS won't mean AK closes early!

    They didn't. We went on a last minute trip late July and the early closing was super annoying. It was just myself and DD18, finally without my younger children along. We really wanted to take advantage of staying out late for once. It was a bummer.

    Well for sure they won't extend the hours at Magic Kingdom in July on these days because of the special event:

    Admission to Disney After Hours can be purchased in advance for $119 per adult or child, plus tax—or purchased on the day of the event for $124 per adult or child, plus tax. Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can take advantage of specially priced tickets for just $89 per adult or child, plus tax.

    The event takes place 10:00 PM to 1:00 AM:

    • Saturday, July 7, 2018
    • Monday, July 9, 2018
    • Saturday, July 14, 2018
    • Saturday, July 21, 2018
    • Saturday, July 28, 2018

    Yes- I’m fairly annoyed that they put this event on a Saturday. Closing at 10 the night we are there is utterly ridiculous.

    Edited: I feel a tiny bit better now that some hours have been extended. We will plan on hitting up MK EMH till 1am on Wednesday.:teeth:

    FYI - just checked for my late July trip and it looks like hours for AK have been extended until 10:30pm. Haven't looked at the other parks yet, but I doubt those will be changing.

    I checked that as well for my trip (or at least the days I will be at AK: 7/22 and 7/27) and yes, there are two showings: 9:15 and 10:15
