There are expected to be over 100,000 people taking  part in the events at Walt Disney World this weekend as part of the Marathon Weekend. In anticipation of the increase in people at the resort, Disney has made adjustments to two of the parks opening hours.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios will now close an hour later today at 9pm instead of 8pm.

Magic Kingdom will also extend its operating hours by an hour today, tomorrow and on the 7th January. As a result of this the park will close at 11pm instead of 10pm.

Good luck to all the participants in the events this weekend and I hope that the extension in park hours means you can enjoy a bit more time in the parks both before and after your event!
