Extended Evening Hours Coming to Hollywood Studios in December

Sep 16, 2022

Riding Slinky Dog Dash or Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance just got a little bit easier for select Disney World guests!  Hollywood Studios will offer Extended Evening Hours on December 15th and December 22, 2022!

Extended Evening Hours is a perk only available to  guests of Disney Deluxe Hotels or Villas which allows them to enjoy one park for an additional two hours after official park close on select nights. This gives park goers a chance to experience attractions with lower crowds and shorter waits. So far, Magic Kingdom and Epcot have been the only parks to consistently offer this benefit, but it seems Disney is testing it out at Hollywood Studios this December.

Remember that only guests of Disney Deluxe Hotels or Disney Deluxe Villas are eligible for Extended Evening Hours. Additionally, not all attractions may be open during this time.
