Halloween Crowd Levels at Walt Disney World

Share This!

This weekend will have the longest park hours since Walt Disney World re-opened in July. Extended park hours are a signal from Disney that they are expecting higher crowds. Hollywood Studios is the only park without extended park hours. This is a bit strange as it is the park with the highest wait times. Expect more tricks than treats this year.

 EPCOT Hollywood
Fri, 10/30 9 am – 8 pm 11 am – 9 pm 10 am – 7 pm 8 am – 6 pm
Sat, 10/31 9 am – 9 pm 11 am – 10 pm 10 am – 7 pm 7 am – 6 pm
Sun, 11/01 9 am – 8 pm 11 am – 9 pm 10 am – 7 pm 8 am – 6 pm

Disney may be using this weekend as a test to see if they can increase capacity for the upcoming holiday season.

He first visited the Magic Kingdom in 1972, just a few months after it opened. Now he enjoys frequent trips with his two kids. At age four his son insisted on wearing cowboy boots to reach the height requirement for Test Track, and his daughter believes that a smoked turkey leg and Dole Whip make a perfectly balanced meal. Even though she doesn't quite get it, Steve's wife is supportive of his Disney activities.
