    Just booked our family vacation to WDW for September 26-October 5, 2013; 7 adults and 3 kids (5, 3, and almost 1)! Wondering when the Extra Hours will be posted for the time we will be visiting and dates for MNNSHP. This is our first Fall visit!


    This is a great question! Disney typically tries to post the park hours, including Extra Magic Hours, about 6 to 7 months in advance, but doesn't always make it.  That gives guests time to adjust any dining reservations since those can be made up to 180 days in advance.  The dates for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party are usually released in early spring.  However, if you want to get a jump on planning, you could look at the dates the party was offered in 2012 and 2011.  Disney has been pretty consistent with that party.

    You have picked a great time to go.  Besides Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, which is fabulous and my favorite hard ticketed event at Walt Disney World, there is also the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.  If you like to try new foods, it's definitely a "must do'".

    Enjoy planning your magical Disney vacation, and please write back with more questions!
