    My 180 day mark for ADRs is quickly approaching. But Disney only released the park hours at 180 days also. So how can I tell which parks have Extra Magic hours so I can plan which parks we will be at and there for which dining reservations to make?

    Hi Carissa,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hear that you're planning another visit to the most magical place on earth!

    I used to have the best trick to find park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and even parade and nighttime show times 190 days in advance, however My Disney Experience has undergone some changes to make it more user friendly, and while I LOVE most of the changes, unfortunately, my little workaround isn't available any more. I've checked with a couple of Cast Members and they're not aware of a way to find that information any more either. I'm still wishing on a star that they'll find a way to add it back in, but for now, you'll have to depend on the regular calendar to find park hours and Extra Magic Hours. You're correct, though, that the calendar only shows planning information up to 180 days in advance. Touringplans.com is reporting hours up to 190 days out and estimating hours further than that, however, that requires a paid membership to view and I can't assure you that the information is accurate without being able to confirm it with Disney's website. My best suggestion at this point would be to go ahead and schedule all of your meals at your 180-day mark, knowing that you may want to change some of them once all of the park hours are released and you finalize your itinerary. While I wish I had all that information for you, I'm sending some pixie dust that your plans will all come together perfectly!

    Please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip, Carissa, and have a truly magical vacation!
