    I am close to booking my Dinning reservation for November this year but the parks opening times haven't been released yet. Do you know when they will be released so we can plan our dinning reservations around them?

    Hiya Anna!

    It's a great day to see you at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for stopping by with your question. 

    One of my favorite parts about planning the most magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is figuring out all the delicious cuisine I will be devouring! There are so many wonderful dining options at The Most Magical Place on Earth, and you can be sure I am awake bright and early to make my Advanced Dining Reservations on day 180 prior to our trip! 

    Usually, Theme Park hours are released roughly 6 months in advance in a rolling calendar, but as of now, it is only finalized through October 31st. The great news is the hours are continuing to be updated and I encourage you to keep checking the Interactive Parks Calendar for the latest information. The calendar is great because it shows operating hours at Disney Springs, Walt Disney World Theme Parks, as well as the Water Parks. I see you’re arriving November 21st of this year, and your 180 day mark would be May 25th, which gives you some time to keep checking the park hours periodically for the most up to date information! 

    One of the most magical meals my family has ever had is at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Dining inside the stunning castle at Magic Kingdom Park while our favorite Princesses come to greet us is a memory I will cherish forever! My boys are huge fans of pizza, and you absolutely cannot go wrong with a reservation at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria in the World Showcase at EPCOT.

    Anna, I hope you have the most enchanting time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
