    Our Disney World vacation is booked for this October. We are using the Dining Plus program and want to plan some character meals. Some nights the park will close early due to the Halloween festivities. When will park hours be announced for October?

    Welcome back, Wendell!

    I'm happy to answer another question for you! Like you, I am planning our fall Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I'm anxiously awaiting theme park hours. I like to have an idea of which theme parks will be offering Extra Magic Hours, so we are sure to take in all the magic. Typically, you can expect hours of operation to be released about six months in advance. So we have just a little longer to wait. Once those hours are released, you will find that essential information for all four theme parks, both water parks, Disney Springs and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on the online entertainment schedule or in the My Disney Experience mobile app. Keep in mind that hours are subject to change without notice, so be sure to check again before your visit to make sure the hours are still the same. 

    I hope this helps with your planning! Please visit us again with other questions you may have.

    Happy Planning!
