    I make my DD reservations on 6/20. Will the park hours be up on line so that I can decide where to eat on what day? Our visit is 12/15 - 12/23. Also - when will the narrators for the Candlelight Processional be announced? Can't wait!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jeanie. We love when you stop by!

     I'm so excited to hear about the visit you're planning! Making dining reservations for our Walt Disney World Resort vacations is one of my absolute favorite things to do, so I totally understand wanting to know about the theme park hours while you're planning your meals. Calendars are typically released 6-months in advance, so you should see park hours for your vacation dates listed on the December calendar any day now! But, guess what? My dear friend and fellow panelist, Missy, has a great tip about how to log into your My Disney Experience account to view park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and even times for shows and parades up to 190 days in advance of your magical stay! Isn't that awesome? I hope you find it as helpful as I do.

     Oh my gosh, Jeanie. You must, must, MUST plan to include the Candlelight Processional into your vacation itinerary. I got to experience this unique Christmas performance last year and I bawled my eyes out - it's SO beautiful! The preliminary list of celebrity narrators was announced at the end of June last year, with additions made to the list throughout the fall. I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any news or updates about the narrators for 2018!

     Wishing you the most magical holiday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
