    How early in advance can you find out which park has magic park hours? I want to RSVP Cinderella table 6 months in advance and want to coordinate it with the magic park hour.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Daniel!

    Extra Magic Hours are one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. I love taking advantage of that extra hour in the theme parks that is exclusively for Resort Hotel guests! There's nothing like the magic of enjoying your favorite theme park with fewer people around.

    The theme park calendar is where you'll find the hours posted for each of the four theme parks, the water parks, and Disney Springs. The calendar updates roughly six months in advance so the hours should be ready for you by the time you can make your dining reservations. I will say that there have been weeks this year where the calendar was not ready 180 days in advance and Extra Magic Hours can be changed at any time but in general, they are available in time for you to make advanced dining reservations. The good news is that your plans are flexible, so if you need to change them for any reason you can use the My Disney Experience app to modify the time or date of your reservations if you want them to line up with Extra Magic Hours.

    Have a magical day, Daniel!
