I apologize if this was discussed somewhere else I did not see it, but I am look at the predicted park hours coming up and something seems off. Park hours per the Disney website go through July 11th, but the Crowd Calendar page does not show ‘Park Hours are Estimates’ until July 25th. Not a big deal, maybe they have two extra weeks of advanced knowledge for park hours.
What is more curious is that all summer long park hours for Hollywood Studios are 9:00am opening with the occasional 8am EMH. Starting on July 25th when ‘Park Hours are Estimates’ the hours change to 8am opening with 7am EMH for the next month or so.
What is the rationale that on July 25th this abrupt change is going to occur?
I understand that is just an estimate and not to rely on these hours until they are released, but I would like to understand them.
