If you decided Disney is the place for your next vacation and your dates are set, it doesn't hurt to go a little bit further in your planning and check out WDW park hours. Though the WDW gates are open 365 days a year, opening and closing hours can vary from day to day throughout the year. The parks that make up Disney World even different hours of operation from each other.
Another thing to brush up on are those coveted Extra Magic Hours. If you're planning a stay at any Disney resort, you're entitled to participate in these guest-only hours. It could be one park opens an hour earlier for Disney guests before the general public can gain access to the park; it also could be that there are a few more hours to be had after a park's general closing for guests only. Having this info handy before you arrive at WDW can assist your plan of attack when it comes to the theme parks.
