- September 30, 2023
- October 5, 2023

- Muppet*Imaginative and prescient 3D
- Rock ‘n’ Curler Coaster Starring Aerosmith

- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
The conspicuous omission from that record is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which was a part of Prolonged Night Hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios final vacation season. This might be a mistake, however we’re guessing that it’s intentional.
It’s attention-grabbing that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is excluded right here, nonetheless closes early at Disneyland, and can use a digital queue at Disney Jollywood Nights Christmas Celebration. I’m wondering if there are nonetheless points with the trip’s reliability later within the night.
As a comfort prize of types, MuppetVision 3D has been added to the record of eligible points of interest.
Usually, Disney’s Hollywood Studios doesn’t take part in Prolonged Night Theme Park Hours. Nevertheless, DHS did take part in Prolonged Night Hours a couple of occasions final 12 months. I used to be capable of attend a type of evenings, and it was nice. We’d count on the identical to carry true for Prolonged Night Hours at DHS in Fall 2023, and would extremely suggest taking benefit for those who’re in a position to take action.
When DHS presents one other Prolonged Night Hours, our suggestion is beginning with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance a couple of minutes earlier than official park closing adopted by Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. After that, head the opposite path in direction of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, adopted by Rock ‘n’ Curler Coaster and Tower of Terror, earlier than doubling again and ending in Toy Story Land with Slinky Canine Sprint proper on the very finish of the night time. That’ll probably be the most effective technique.
Even earlier than this information, we’ve had many readers ask us whether or not Prolonged Night Hours would return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Christmas 2023. We didn’t have a solution then and nonetheless don’t know now.
Walt Disney World probably is just not doing this as a “reward” to visitors. Prior to now, they’ve accomplished Prolonged Night Hours at DHS as a substitute for EPCOT or Magic Kingdom on account of scheduling conflicts, equivalent to non-public occasions or company park buyouts. These Prolonged Night Hours occurred on the identical nights as their counterparts in Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.
These Fall 2023 Prolonged Night Hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are taking place on a Saturday, and twice on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I can’t clarify that. It’s potential these are counterprogramming for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Celebration and can assist fight crowds and displaced visitors because of that. I don’t actually know, although.
Two of those nights are taking place across the busy Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples’ vacation weekend, which has grow to be more and more busy at Walt Disney World. However different dates are extra random, at occasions in October after I wouldn’t essentially count on chaotic crowds.
So to reply the inevitable query, I nonetheless don’t learn about Prolonged Night Hours at DHS this vacation season. If the Fall 2023 dates are on account of displaced crowds throughout Celebration Season, there’s an excellent probability it’ll occur once more round Thanksgiving and Christmas. I wouldn’t wager on that, however I wouldn’t wager in opposition to it, both. Very insightful evaluation, I do know.
Finally, we’re huge followers of Prolonged Night Hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and hope that it’s provided extra. Whereas we find it irresistible being accessible at 3 parks, we’d actually moderately do it at DHS than EPCOT.
Though few issues are as nice as a serene stroll by way of World Showcase after park closing, the ‘nation route’ is usually closed off after a sure time and trip breakdowns could make EPCOT Prolonged Night Hours much less gratifying–or productive. With its extra compact structure and top-heavy trip roster, we predict that Disney’s Hollywood Studios is significantly better suited to host Prolonged Night Hours.
