If you have a trip to Disney's Hollywood Studios planned for the month of December, you may want to check those park hours again. Disney has dramatically increased the park hours and Fantasmic show times for the rest of the month.
The biggest changes came during the week of Christmas to New Years, where park hours have been extended and Fantasmic! shows added. There's now three Fantasmic! shows per day between December 28-31. In addition, Hollywood Studios will open at 8am starting on December 26th and running throughout the week.
The increased park hours are a double edged sword. On the one hand, you will have more time in the parks to play, but on the other hand, Disney increases park hours like this when they anticipate higher crowd levels so the park will be busier.
Tip of the hat goes to TouringPlans.com Fred Hazelton for alerting us to the changes.
