    When will the dates, times and locations for extra magic hours be announced for September 2018? I need to know for booking my dining reservations.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Holly! 

    Hooray for planning ahead for what will surely be a most magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! And well done for being ready to book those delicious Advanced Dining Reservations at all your favorite Disney restaurants. If there is anything that gets me super excited, albeit hungry, when planning my visits is planning all my family's meals. With some many decadent and exciting dining options, booking those reservations is part of the fun!

    Holly, schedules are usually published about 6-months in advance. Right on time to book all your dining reservations when that 180-day window opens. Schedules are subject to change so be sure to check back as your dates get closer to make sure everything still looks good.

    I just took a peek and schedules are currently posted through mid-late August. I'd venture to guess September will be posted shortly so keep checking back!

    Have fun dreaming up and planning your visit to the most magical place on earth. But, word to the wise, don't work on those reservations while hungry. You might just get a rumbly in your tumbly!

    Thanks again for stopping by! We hope to see you again real soon. It's our pleasure to assist you as you plan a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    TTFN, ta ta for now,
