Disney World will not be holding its usual Christmas celebrations. However, it will have extended hours during the Christmas season. This is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Disney World website assures its guests that they “have taken enhanced health and safety measures.”
“Certain parks, hotels, restaurants and other offerings may be modified or unavailable, limited in capacity and subject to limited availability or closure,” the website also clarifies. Additionally, they do not guarantee “park admission and offerings.”
Starting December until the week of Christmas, the Magic Kingdom will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Starting December 20th, the Magic Kingdom will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. This will go on until December 30th.
According to Fox Business, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom will also have extended hours.
“Building off of our recent experiences of operating in a new environment, we’ve reimagined the holidays which will, of course, apply our current health and safety measures while still keeping the joy and magic of the season. And while things are looking a bit different at Walt Disney World and beyond, we can’t wait to celebrate with you,” wrote Laurel Slater, Manager of Communications at Walt Disney World Public Affairs, in a blog post published on September 8th.
