    Have booked Coronado Springs Dec 28/13-Jan 4/14. When will the Jan 1-4 park hours and EMH be posted as I am trying to plan which parks to go to on which days during our trip. As well when can we start to book our Disney Dining Reservations thanks Kim

    Hi Kimberley,

    Coronado Springs is a beautiful resort, and it's so exciting to be at Walt Disney World during the holidays. It is one of the most popular times to visit, so you are definitely smart in trying to get a jump start on organizing and planning your vacation.

    You can begin to make dining reservations 180 days prior to your trip. By my calculations that would be June 29th. It's coming up soon. The Extra Magic Hour days should also be available right around that time. If they don't, it's been my experience that the days for Extra Magic Hours generally stay the same. What may change is the park opening and closing times. Also, to accommodate larger crowds, additional Extra Magic Hours are sometimes added.

    I checked the calendar, and it looks like the park hours are listed all the way up to December 27, so your vacation dates should start showing up within the next week, just in time for you to make your reservations. You can look at the week prior to get a general idea of when Magic Hours might be.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
