    We’re close to booking our ts meals for our trip in May 2020. We always struggle to plan successfully, as we’re booking our meals so far in advance the magic hours have changed by the time we travel. Is there a way of checking magic hours 180 days ahead?

    Hi, Karen!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    While Extra Magic Hours are always subject to change, they are also usually published 180 in advance so that Guests can plan around them. The best place to monitor that information is the Walt Disney World Resort monthly calendar

    Because the calendar is always subject to change, I like to cover my bases when it comes to reservations that I really want to keep, like my last visit to the Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White. So, if you're not sure about when to visit a specific restaurant and you are afraid your plans may change, I'd advise you to make two reservations in two separate days.

    As your trip comes closer, you can choose which one to keep after you've made FastPass+ arrangements for your party, for example. Just follow the cancellation policies, and you are sure to have the perfect itinerary for your vacation!

    I hope that this tip helps you plan for some magical days, Karen. As your trip gets closer, please, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions. We're here to help!

    May the magic be with you,
