    How far in advance of the does Disney post email to reserve moonlight magic nights. Missed last years Animal Kingdom one and don't want to miss this one set for Sept. when I'll be there. When did they post email for 2016's?

    Hi Mary, 

    It sounds like we will both be enjoying a September vacation at Walt Disney World and aiming to attend Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The Moonlight Magic events have certainly been very popular and I have been hEARing plenty of positive feedback about these complimentary after-hours events at the Disney Theme Parks and Water Parks. Special character greeting opportunities, complimentary snacks and refreshments and shorter than normal wait times at many park attractions all definitely get two thumbs up from me. Just like you, I can't wait to finally experience one of these events in person!

    Registration dates for the September Moonlight Magic event at Animal Kingdom has not been announced. Currently registration is only open for the Moonlight Magic events at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park which are scheduled in June and July. Be sure to keep checking the Membership Magic Ever After website for more information as specific registration details get released. Based on the past events, I expect details should be released within the next month or so.

    During past Disney Vacation Club member events, some Disney Vacation Club members who have been staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel coinciding with the Moonlight Magic event have received early registration privileges and notification, although there is no guarantee how things will unfold for the upcoming events.

    Good luck securing your spot Mary, and I hope to see you there!
