    We will be at DW 12/21/13 - 12/28/13 for my daughters first Disney vacation. Do you know the extra magic hours for these dates yet? I would love to be able to plan our ADR according to which park has the extra hours. Thanks

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Kim!

    You've picked an exciting time at Disney World for your daughter's first vacation! The parks are just gorgeous with all of the festive Christmas decorations.

    Disney usually posts their online calendars 6 months in advance but its been a little sporadic lately.  That could be because of the busy holiday schedules during the end of the year. Right now the calendars are up through the first week of December 2013. I would anticipate the remainder of December 2013 calendars being posted in the next couple of weeks but don't know that for sure.
    Keep checking the online calendar for park hours daily.  If I had my heart set on a specific place I really wanted to dine during that time, I'd go ahead and try to get an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) as soon as my window to make ADRs opens even if they haven't posted the park hours yet.  Hopefully they will by that time but at least you'll still have reservations at the places you want to dine most or perhaps can switch them around.

    Please feel free to visit with any other questions. We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
