    I have booked a family trip to Disney from October 10-17, 2009. Do you know when during that week the Fantasmic show, the Illuminations show, or the Spectral Magic parade will be? It will be helpful to know in order to plan dinner reservations. Thanks!

    Hi Monisha,

    The October park hours including parade times have not been released yet. Disney World Park hours are currently being released 3 months in advance plus the current month so the October hours should be released by the beginning of July.

    What I suggest you do is subscribe to an independent newsletter such as the ones at or and they will notify you when they're released. You can check out the current park hours at by clicking on Plan then Park Hours.

    Dining reservations can now be made up to 90 days in advance so the park hours will be out in plenty of time for you to plan.

    Have a great trip,
