Does anyone have any clue when the summer (late) hours end this year? Planning our August trip and don't want to make the mistake of booking when the parks close early (did that one year). In the old days it was after Labor Day, but it's gotten earlier and I'm wondering about this year with the parade ending the 20th (unfortunately contacting Guest Service doesn't help).

My best estimate is August 20th or at the latest august 27th. You are correct that it has scaled back but they close at 12am and then they go down to 11pm for a few weeks.  But sadly you can only check 60 days out in the Disney site  - pikaplaid  7885.5 #17 2:07PM
Mahalo!  Once I messed up and most nights the park closed at like 9pm!  We saw a lot of movies that trip! - msdizmaui  1093.3 #205 3:16PM
Don't they usually stay open until 12:00 Fri, Sat and Sun most weekends? I would think they would at least through Labor Day. Or will your trip be during the week? - mommyduchess  541.3 #441 2:13PM
We'll probably stay a week. If the hotel offers any specials it's usually only food Sun-Thurs, but we're used to that.  - msdizmaui  1093.3 #205 3:15PM
What dates are you looking at to come, if I may ask? - mommyduchess   541.3 #441 3:42PM
mommyduchess that's the $64,000 question. I want to make sure the park is open late every day but there's all these variables (hotels usually offer discounts later in the month; it'll be super crowded the last week of the parade; could be super crowded when Fantasmic starts up again).  - msdizmaui  1093.3 #205 12:21PM
Make sure you aren't blocked - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3217.3 #54 2:30PM
Hahaha.  That's the first thing that I'll check!  Mahalo for the reminder! - msdizmaui  1093.3 #205 3:14PM
It depends too on the entertainment and crowds. Last year they went down to early's for a little bit and then within a week they went back up to normal late hours without any announcement. So keep an eye on the entertainment schedule.πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  13012.9 #9 12:34PM

Β This was just a big rectangle hole in the ground. There was a hot tub in the corner and during the summer they set up a temp bar at one end and had cocktail servers. It was nothing special but I have such great memories there! Β  - msdizmaui  1093.3 #205 11:03PM

Back home (and totally depressed). What's the first thing I did after unpacking.....checked hotel rates and flights for August!

Hope you enjoyed your trip to the parks. Sorry I missed you, but hope to see you when you come back again. Glad to hear you made it home safely 😊 - DisneyDiane316  3131.5 #56 9:03PM
I hope to see you too one of these trips!   - msdizmaui  1093.3 #205 12:21AM
When in August? You double checked block out dates for then, right? πŸ˜‰ Last week of August the past few years has proven to be a pretty nice, less crowded time to go. (It'll definitely be hot at that time! 😬) - mommyduchess  541.3 #441 11:03PM

Things I learned on this trip: 1) black leggings are the new official uniform for women; 2) if I don't do good in the first game on TSMM, I don't stand a chance of beating my son; 3) you CAN still get "double surf" at Blue Bayou, but it's costs $15 extra. A hui hou Disneyland...

Proud black capri legging wearer βœ‹πŸΌπŸ˜‚.  Rarely will I stray from my park uniform and yes, without a doubt, some women do need to do a chonie check, cause not all leggings are created equal or opaque.   - Linzee  2068.9 #95 10:46PM

My son and I aren't foodies so nothing at the Food & Wine festival interested us (except I bought an AP tshirt). A Galactic-style burger satisfied my son's cravings for In N Out!

I wonder how it compares to Smokejumpers - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3217.3 #54 4:12PM
