    My family will be visiting WDW for the first time at the end of November!! I am narrowing down our picks for our ADR's. I would like to make reservations for some dinner packages. Any idea when the schedule will be released for events like Fantasmic?

    Hi, Maria! 

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It's so exciting to be planning your first-ever vacation to Walt Disney World! You're very smart to be narrowing down your dining options in advance of your trip -- you'll be all set to make your reservations as soon as your 180-day window opens up in May.

    Theme park hours and show schedules (for parades and fireworks) are typically released 6 months in advance so Guests can plan their vacation itineraries and make Advance Dining Reservations (ADR's). Currently, the hours and schedules are posted through October 1st on the Walt Disney World Resort website. I would suggest that you begin checking the website at the end of April or first few days of May for the November park hours and show schedules. The Fantasmic Dinner Package is obviously tied directly to the Fantasmic show schedule, so you'll be able to view the schedule (specific dates and times) and book your dining package at the same time. 

    Wishing you a magical first visit, Maria! Please write me back if you'd like any suggestions for dinner packages or special events happening during your stay in November. It would be my pleasure to assist you further with your planning.
