    We are able to make dining reservations beginning tomorrow, however park hrs only available 8/7 - 8/11. When will hrs be out for 8/12 to 8/18? Need to know for dining plans. Never had this problem before. Thanks

    Hi Cristin,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us.

    When I checked the park hours for your dates, hours are listed if you click on August 12th and view the 5-day calendar. From that screen, you should be able to scroll forward to the next 5-day view. When I have been unable to see park hours in the past, I have also just used the weeks immediately preceding my trip as a guide.

    Once you have made those dining reservations, remember to double-check as you get close to your trip dates. Since we love to do pre-park opening dining reservations, I like to be sure that we are not making that reservation for a day when a park has early morning Extra Magic Hours. We love that quiet time in the parks before the crowds arrive so a pre-park opening breakfast reservation works best when there are no early morning Extra Magic Hours.

    If you want to see an entertainment schedule for a particular park on a specific day, simply click on the link for that park in My Disney Experience, use the calendar feature to select your date and then click on Characters & Entertainment. The Magic Kingdom Character & Entertainment schedule might be helpful - just select a date for your visit.

    Cristin, sending pixie dust your way hoping you are able to get all of your dining reservations!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
