January Magic Kingdom Hours
The January Magic Kingdom Hours are as boring as the January weather. Predictable. The park is going to open at 9:00 in the morning and close at 8:00 in the evening almost every day except for the first week to celebrate the New Year. BORING.
The Disney World Marathon is in January
January is one of the nicest times to visit Walt Disney World. In January crowds are fairly light for most of the month. Temperatures are comfortable and the park is beautiful (It always is.)
To find the best way to avoid standing in line while at the Magic Kingdom, Dad suggests you check out Touringplans.com. They have all the latest up-to-date information ranging from line lengths to hours to even complete touring plans to help you with create a Magical Disney World vacation.
The only big event in January is the Disney World Marathon Weekend. Held the first weekend every January, the marathon brings in some crowds but overall it's a great time to visit.
Extra Magic Hour
Another boring an predictable thing in January at the Magic Kingdom is Disney's Extra Magic Hour . Sunday's the park is open late and Thursday it opens early. Every week (after the New Years crowds go home). It's just pretty predictable. (I mean that in the best possible way.)
As usual Disney's hours are subject to change without notice. Or at least without fanfare.
If you'd like to get a price on a Magical Disney World vacation in January, give Destinations to Travel a try. Dad recommends them because they are dedicated to bringing you the best service you can get when booking at Disney World vacation.
Dad's Bottom Line
Even though the January Magic Kingdom hours only go to 8:00 most nights, Wishes is still shown every night in January. And most nights you can see Main Street Electrical Parade. Check your daily schedule for the times.
