    How can you book dining 180 days out if Disney doesn’t release magic hours for there parks until later? I don't see the "My Itinerary" referenced in another Q&A to enable me to add parks to my plans...

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Erin! I’m so glad that you stopped in with your question! Planning my family’s trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is always part of the fun for me and I’m happy to help you!

    I totally understand what you mean when you’re trying to plan your meals and map out your days for your magical visit. You can start viewing park calendars via the Interactive Parks Calendar, exactly six-months to the day. When you are close to the time frame when your vacation will begin, you will see those days start to trickle in to reveal Extra Magic Hours and opening and closing times for all four theme parks. If you choose the 5-day or the daily view, you will also see listed times for firework shows and parades. 

    You can start making those dining reservations, bright and early, at 6:00 a.m., when you’re exactly six-months away from your first magical vacation day. Make sure to link those reservations to your My Disney Experience account, to make sure you have all your important vacation information in the same place. It also makes for easy access if you need to modify or cancel a reservation at any time. 

    Erin, if you have any other questions, feel free to come back to see us. It’s our pleasure to help you with all of the details of your next magical visit!
