That is why each week we bring you an update on the park hours for the week coming up as well as the latest Park Pass Reservation availability, just in case you need to make any last-minute changes. Let’s take a look at what the week of January 30th, 2022 looks like at Disney World!

Also, don’t forget about Early Theme Park Entry!

This is a great way to get a head start on those popular rides and attractions before the park gets busier.
