    Hello! How far in advance does DISNEY list each park operating times? We want to make sure we plan our dining reservations, etc by which day we will be in which park! Also, is it better to go to the parks with EMH or the ones without (lower crowds?) Thanks

    Hi Keisha!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I love planning every single detail of my Walt Disney World Resort visits in advance! I like exploring all the dining options, thinking about how to tour the theme parks, planning FastPass+ experiences, and choosing which days to enjoy Extra Magic Hours.

    The Walt Disney World Resort hours are available online up to 180 days in advance and you are able to check theme park opening times, Extra Magic Hours, and the schedule for fireworks, entertainment, special events, and even planned refurbishments. Please note, however, that hours are subject to change without notice, so you must be sure to check back every once in a while and make adaptations accordingly.

    Extra Magic Hours are absolutely worth it! They are a great benefit and I prefer to enjoy them when they are offered in the morning. The parks are still quiet and only Guests who have this benefit are allowed to enter and enjoy the participating attractions.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Keisha! Please stop by real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
