    In about 10 days, I can make dining reservations for our November 6 trip. How do I know which parks have extra hours open, parade/fireworks times, etc. so that I can make the decision for which park to visit which day? The dates are not up yet.

    Hi Joan!

    I absolutely love when my 180 day Advanced Dining Reservation window opens up! One of the best parts of planning at Walt Disney World vacation is booking all of the dining and special events.

    Walt Disney World typically releases the park hours, parade times, fireworks schedule and Extra Magic Hours six months in advance. I noticed on the Walt Disney World Calendar that currently the hours are released up until October 29. You will be able to see the November hours in a few days, so make sure to check back next week.

    Disney Parks Moms Panel Tip: PizzaRizzo recently opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and this pizza place is themed after Muppets. You don't need an Advanced Dining Reservation here, but definitely make sure to check it out when you visit.
