    When will Disney World put out their December park hours? Our travel dates are 12/8-12/13. Thanks!

    Hi, Stacie!

    December is a great time to travel to Walt Disney World. Mickey Mouse will have all the parks and resorts decked out for the holidays complete with lights, decorations, soaring Christmas trees!

    Park hours are generally posted 6 months in advance. Right around the same time, at 180 days out, you can begin booking your dining reservations. Mark that date on your calendar so you can book those hard to get reservations like Chef Mickey's or Cinderella's Royal Table. Dining reservations can be made online or by calling (407)WDW-DINE.

    If your schedule allows, plan an evening at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Mickey goes all out for this party, with complimentary hot cocoa, snacks, cookies, and more! The highlight of this party for me is "Mickey's Once Upon a Time Christmas Parade." It is sure to put you in a festive mood. And, I believe there is SNOW in the forecast on Main Street USA! Tickets for this special event can be purchased online.

    Your magical vacation will be here before you know it. Have fun planning your December trip to Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
