    Arriving in 234 days!!I know we can book dining 180 days out - but will I know the park schedule for the duration of our trip at the 180 day point? I’d like to book reservations based on park hours. Or do ppl just book them all and hope it works out?Thx!!

    Hey there, Kayleigh! 
    Thanks so much for visiting with us again! September will be here before you know!

    The theme park schedules and the Advanced Dining Reservation system are pretty close in dates. So, around the 180-day mark for your September trip, the theme park hours may be available but any Extra Magic Hours may not be up-to-date. 

    I've often booked our dining reservations, especially the popular reservations, like Chef Mickey, Be Our Guest, Cinderella's Royal Table, and the newest most popular dining experience, Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White, whenever there is one available during our stay. I will then plan our days based around our dining reservation. 

    Being flexible with your Disney vacation schedule is key, especially if there is a particular dining experience that you must have. 

    Kayleigh, continue that vacation countdown and visit with us again soon!
    Wishing you magic and memories,
