    Hi! We book our ADRs next week for our trip starting 10/16. Do you have any idea when we'll be able to see the park schedule? Will it only be on our ADR date that we'll be able to see the whole trip schedule?

    Hi Sarah,

    I am by no means an early bird, but there's something super magical about the morning that you're able to make all of your advanced dining reservations! I'll happily wake up early for Disney planning!

    You'll be able to call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time or book some restaurants online beginning as early as 5:45 a.m. Eastern time 180 days before your arrival. If you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you are able to make all of your dining selections for the length of your stay, up to 10 days, at that 180-day point, which definitely allows you the most availability and flexibility. 

    Although they are subject to change, Park Hours are posted 180 days in advance. So while you'll be able to see Park Hours for the first day of your vacation when your advanced dining reservation window opens, you won't be able to see them for your whole stay. I recommend going ahead and making all of your selections anyway. Take advantage of that early booking window if you have it! Once you've made your plans, keep an eye on the Park Hours as they come out and if you decide that something doesn't fit together well, you can make any changes at that point. Just don't cancel a reservation that you really want until you are sure that you've found a replacement that works! You may decide to build your plans around a confirmed reservation at a much-anticipated restaurant!

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sarah. I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll find the perfect dining reservations, and I hope that you have a truly magical and delicious vacation!
