Disney World Park Hours Are Extended
It is not unusual to hear about Disney World extending its park hours as that has also been done in previous years. However, this year, the parks will be operating at reduced hours, despite the extension, due to Disney’s safety measures. For the first week of March, specifically from February 28, 2021, to March 6, 2021, Disney World park hours will be extended by an hour for each of the parks.
Some parks will stay open for one hour longer, whereas others will open an hour earlier. To help you plan your itinerary successfully, here is a summary of each park’s opening and closing times for the week of February 28 to March 6:
|Park||Opening Time||Closing Time|
|Magic Kingdom||9 AM||7 PM|

What to Know About Disney World in March
With Disney World park hours being extended in March, you have more time to explore each of the parks and attractions. Historically, March has been known as the busiest month for Disney World since it marks the beginning of spring break for many people. As such, high crowds are likely to be present due to the increased demand at this time.
Since the park is only operating at 35% of its capacity to maintain social distancing rules, you will need to book your tickets in advance to secure your entrance. Take note that reservations are limited, and due to attendance constrictions, you may only visit one park per day. For those getting multiple day tickets, you will need to select a park for each day.
If you feel like you may want to go to various parks in a day, you can get a ticket with Park Hopper. With this, you will have to reserve your slot for the first park you will visit. You can only make use of the Park Hopper feature after 2 PM until the park’s closing hours. However, permission to enter another park will only be granted if the park is not yet at full capacity. If you are unsure about how to build your itinerary, you can get a Disney VIP tour to plan out your park visits thoroughly and maximize your time.
If you were to visit the park around this time, one of the highlights to look out for would be the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival. The annual festival celebrates the arrival of spring with various topiary displays, beautiful gardens, live entertainment, and many others. The event will run from March 3, to July 5 this year, so with the additional park hours, you can surely have more time going through the booths and activities.
