There has been no announcement of changed Paradise gate hours so far.  The park website still lists the hours as 9-5, however the sign at the Longmire gate says 5:30 and some recent openings have been well before 9.  This nice Saturday evening shows a dozen cars still on cam at 5:30, a patrol vehicle at the ranger station, and people all over the (also never announced) tubing area.

Sunday Update:  Still no announced changes of the 9-5 hours.  Several private vehicles were on cam at Paradise at 8 am.  The Longmire gate must have opened about the same time as the 7:34 tweet:  "...expected to open on time at 9...".  For about the tenth time this season, there was no confirmation tweet that the gate was open.  About 30 vehicles remained in the upper lot at 5:30, so there appears to be no enforcement of the posted hours, on weekends at least.
