Walt Disney World is scaling back its hours after a lower-than-expected attendance, and the multiple flight cancellations. The world-famous amusement park re-opened its doors in July following the exit from the middle of March. Disney enthusiasts were excited to finally get back into the park, while others are a little more on the cautious side and decided to go for a visit soon. The park is located at Orlando, Florida, which, as well as many other cities and towns in the United States, it is the view of the big peaks in the case of the last couple of weeks.
The new hours for Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Scheduled: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the Hollywood Studios: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and it’s animal kingdom: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The opening of two hours less per day, and are set to go into effect on the 8th of September. They will be open until October, that’s when things will reportedly be reviewed in order to determine if the presence of a back-up or not. One of the main reasons for the small crowds at walt Disney World, is due to fewer out of state trips that are taking place in all corners of the country.
Disney has lost about $5 billion in the last quarter of the year alone, and things are really looking better for the near future. Walt Disney’s CEO, Bob Chapek and chief financial officer, Christine McCarthy revealed earlier this week that Walt Disney World has seen a rise in the number of cancellations, which was a lot more than they’d like to see the Florida park.

Shortly after the re-opening, Hong Kong Disneyland had to shut its doors, and the Anaheim, California park is closed. It was intended to be at Disneyland back in the middle of July, but those plans were quickly discarded, as the California case, the numbers began to surge, particularly around the Orange County area, where the park is located. As of now, there is no time limit for the re-opening of the park, while the Downtown Disney area and has been going strong since its re-opening in mid-July. Disneyland is waiting for a comprehensive plan from the Governor’s Gavin Newsom, yet the uk is still not even open at the moment, so it may be a while.
Even though Walt Disney World is cutting back on hours, it should still give the visitor enough time to get everything in order to do what they want. Plus, the crowd sizes are reduced due to Disney, and less and less people are showing up, which means that social distance along with the waiting time, should be no problem. Visitors have to wear masks at all times, and they have their temperature checked before you step foot in the park. The official The Walt Disney World Resort the website was the first to note the change in the operation hours.
