It’s been a tough time for Florida’s theme parks. Cleaning crews have stepped up their efforts. Park guests have had to wear face coverings. Rides are operating at reduced capacity to ensure social distancing. Walt Disney World is making another change – a reduction in operating hours.

Travel + Leisure reports the changes will begin September 8. Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios will all close one hour earlier. That means Magic Kingdom will close at 6pm. Hollywood Studios will close at 7pm. Animal Kingdom will close at 5pm. The biggest change is at Epcot. They will close at 7pm, two hours earlier. [Source: Travel + Leisure]
