Required Itinerary Changes for April 2012

By Dave Shute

The Easter Itinerary largely works for arrival dates of 3/31/2012 and 4/7/2012.

However, each week, there’s some things to change and some things to look out for.

Changes and things to look out for: week beginning 3/31/2102:

  • On Monday, the Animal Kingdom is not currently scheduled to have evening Extra Magic Hours, so your day will end earlier than the itinerary indicates.
  • The Magic Kingdom opens at 8a almost every day, and has morning Extra Magic Hours almost every day as well.
  • This means that the park will open to Disney resort hotel guests at 7a, not 9a as the itinerary indicates.  Move the beginning of your day up by 90 minutes on such days.
  • Additional early openings and Extra Magic Hours may be added, so stay in touch with Disney’s park calendars.

Changes and things to look out for: week beginning 4/7/2102:

  • On Monday, the Animal Kingdom is not currently scheduled to have evening Extra Magic Hours, so your day will end earlier than the itinerary indicates.
  • The Magic Kingdom as I write this opens at 9a almost every day.  I expect many of these openings to be shifted to 8a. It also has morning Extra Magic Hours almost every day as well.
  • This means that the park may open to Disney resort hotel guests at 7a, not 9a as the itinerary indicates.  Move the beginning of your day up by 90 minutes on such days.
  • Additional early openings and Extra Magic Hours may be added, so stay in touch with Disney’s park calendars.
