    We are going to Disney at Thanksgiving and are going to make Dining Reservations. I can not see the Park hours except on the day to make my reservations. Are there any hints wanted to make my reservations around EMH.

    Hi Clayton,

    I have good news for you! While the calendar only shows information for the next 180 days, I have a tip that will allow you to see the current schedule for the next 190 days, including Extra Magic Hours!

    All you need to do is sign in to your My Disney Experience account, then click on "View Itinerary." Next, click on "Add Plans" and choose "Add Parks & Places." You'll then be able to change the date at the top of the page, and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo, you'll have access to the next 190 days of park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and parade and nighttime show times. I hope this helps you plan the perfect itinerary for your trip so that you'll be all ready to go when your 180-day dining reservation window opens. Restaurant menus are available online, so have fun choosing between all of the delicious and fun options!

    My family visited the Walt Disney World Resort for Thanksgiving once and had a blast! It is a popular time to visit, so I'd encourage you to arrive early at the theme parks and take full advantage of the FastPass+ service! Did you know that while you're able to make three selections per day ahead of time, once you've enjoyed those experiences you'll be able to use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, pending availability, until the theme parks close? FastPass+ is a great time-saver!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Clayton. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
