    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer! You are going to love visiting the "Happiest Place on Earth" in December when all of the parks and resorts are beautifully decorated for the holiday season! Unfortunately, the park hours for your specific dates of travel have not been officially announced at this time according to the Disney Parks Calendar. I have provided a link to the official Disney Parks Calendar for you. The park hours are traditionally posted six months in advance. I would recommend that you take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, if possible, since you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort and visiting during a busy time of the year. Without the specific park hours available at this time, I will be glad to give you a tentative itinerary, but would recommend adjusting it slightly once you know the park hours and Extra Magic Hours for Epcot and DIsney's Hollywood Studios. I find that we are able to experience many of the most popular attractions with little to no wait during Morning Extra Magic Hours. If Morning Extra Magic Hours is available at Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios on the 20th or 21st, then I would plan your itinerary accordingly in order to take advantage of this benefit of Walt Disney World Resort guests. You may find that you are able to use one of your Water Park Fun & More Options on your arrival day.  

    * December 19th - Disney's Animal Kingdom Park followed by Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park 
    * December 20th -  Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios 
    * December 21st -  Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios 
    * December 22nd - Magic Kingdom Park 
    I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. I would love to assist you in planning a magical and merry Walt Disney World vacation!
    Happy Planning,
