You might have noticed that none of the parks are opening or closing at the same time right now. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is open 8:00-6:00, Magic Kingdom 9:00-7:00, Disney’s Hollywood Studios 10:00-8:00, and EPCOT 11:00-9:00. All of them are open for ten hours. The staggered hours mean that there will be fewer people waiting for transportation from the resorts in the morning, and it prevents bottlenecks when people return at the end of the day. It’s a smart move on Disney’s part.
