    Dear Amber, thanks for your reply, I shoud have included our dates, Aug.23-Sept.4. So from your answer, we will have to book the last 4 days of parks/dining without knowing hours probably, right? We can book dining on May 25th. Thanks again.

    Hi again April!

    I can definitely see your concern. It will be a bit of a waiting game for you I'm afraid. There is always the chance that the park hours for September could be released a few days early, and for your sake I hope this is the case.

    Here is what I would do if I were you. Once the park hours are released for August, I would plan all of those days. Try to choose the most popular restaurants on your wish list for these days since you know the schedule. This way you can get those ADRs locked in and secured. You could make tentative reservations for the first few days of September, and then check them against the park hours when they're released. If necessary, you can call back and cancel these or change them to better suit your needs once you know what to expect.

    I hope everything works out for you! Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!
