    When are the complete December 2017 hours going to be available? I need to make my plans so I can make my ADR's as my 180 day mark is fast approaching! (16 days!) They are usually out by now.

    Hi Lela,

    It's the most wonderful time of the year for good reason, as there is nothing quite like celebrating the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort! The Parks and Resorts will be decked out in beautiful holiday decorations and there are so many festivities taking place. You must be so excited for your trip!

    Lela, as you suggest, generally park hours information tends to be released approximately 6 months in advance. While information has been released for the beginning of December, I expect information for the rest of the month should be released very soon. The Disney Parks Calendar is your best resource for information regarding park hours, but do be aware that schedules may continue to be adjusted and changed as you get closer to your trip. Therefore, I always like to recheck the Park Calendar just before leaving on my trip to ensure that I have the most accurate and up-to-date information. Also, if you haven't already done so, be sure to download the My Disney Experience app, which will allow you to view park hours, make and view FastPass+ selections, and make dining reservations on the go right from the convenience of your mobile device.

    Lela while you are waiting for park hours for the remainder of December, if you would like to get a sense of historic park information for this period, both TouringPlans.com and EasyWDW.com will provide you with an overview of December park hours for last year to give you some idea of what to expect. Please note that these are not Disney owned or endorsed websites. Do be aware though, that there is no guarantee that this year's hours will be identical to last year's.  

    Should you have any further questions as you continue your vacation planning, please feel free to stop back.  We would love to hEAR from you!
