    How far in advance do Disney release information with regards to scheduling. We are arriving on 26th January for 2 weeks and I cant seem to find park opening hours, parade times, firework schedules etc Thanks, Steve

    Hiya, Stephen!

    Welcome to planDisney! A two-week stay at The Most Magical Place on Earth sounds like a dream come true! I am sure that your entire travel party is getting excited about your arrival. It sounds as if you are ready to start finalizing all the details of your magical itinerary, so let's go over park hours and schedules!

    Official theme park hours at Walt Disney World Resort are published about 60 days in advance. You will be able to see all of the details on the Walt Disney World website and on the My Disney Experience app after they are released. You will also be able to see showtimes for parades, nighttime spectaculars, and more at that 60 days mark. 

    While we are on the topic of 60 days, this is also the date you can begin making your dining and Enchanting Extras Collection bookings. The reservation window traditionally opens around 5:45 AM ET, so set your alarm. You can make your reservations for dining online or through the My Disney Experience app. If you are booking a tour or adventure from the Enchanting Extras Collection, you can reserve your spot by contacting a friendly Cast Member by phone with Tours, Recreation. Some reservations can book within minutes due to popularity, so be sure to mark your calendar with this date. If you are a Guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel during your stay, you will be able to start booking your reservations at the 60-day mark and book for an additional nine days. This is one of the many exclusive benefits available to Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests. Being able to book a full 10 days of dining and experiences is a great way to secure some of those hard-to-get reservations like 'Ohana or Be Our Guest Restaurant. 

    I hope your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
