However, Disney fans have more reason to rejoice! Disney World released its calendar up through the month of November. It is apparent in the calendar that the Disney resort will be bringing its first Extended Evening Hours event to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park on November 8, 2023.

What are Disney’s Extended Evening Hours?

A perk available to guests of Disney Deluxe Hotels and a very select group of partner hotels, Extended Evening Hours grants guests access to a select park on select nights, for extra time—typically two hours—after the park has closed to other guests.
