Given the circumstances of reopening, Disney had trimmed down it hours.

Due to regulated crowd works, lesser people would be joining in which would shorter the waiting period for rides. So, one can enjoy even in a shorter duration.

However, the Columbus Day weekend (a national holiday in the US) is likely to draw a bigger crowd. Therefore Disney has decided to extend the timings a little longer to celebrate the day.

Please note that the crowds that attracted larger crowds have currently closed and would remain so even though opening hours have been extended.

All Walt Disney Parks would also have an extended time slot for the Holiday Season. However, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Candlelight Procession at Epcot would not take place.
