    Haven't been to WDW since 2016. What's the likelihood that park hours in Animal Kingdom will be extended from 9 to 10 pm in July? And while I have you...tee hee... how about Magic Kingdom?
    TIA friends :thanks:

    More than likely. My June hours for AK was extended to 10:30 in early June. You'll get AT LEAST that.

    Magic kingdom was also pushed to 11 most nights we're there, along with a couple midnights I believe. You good!

    With Toy Story land opening - I don't know if they would extend AK - since the hours at HS are later than usual. I wish the hours were extended on MK - we love late nights.

    Just an FYI: last year June hours were extended more so than July. Not saying that will happen this time, but it has happened before.

    However, OP I would think they will extend hours somewhat. They usually do it mid month the month before, and usually on a Friday or Monday.

    They seem to be adding hours to most of the parks so the chances of the hours being extended is very good if they expect the crowd level to be high.
    Unfortunately, nobody will really know until they release revised hours. Which seems to occur frequently.

    Probably not, they just extended June hours last week. July hours will be extended in June most likely.
