    How far in advance are extra magic hours announced? I've always heard go to a park that doesn't have magic hours because it is less crowded. Will that and Christmas parades be announced before your 180 day window for ADR and 60 days for FP?

    Welcome back, Brittany!

    Typically, hours of operation for Walt Disney World Resort are released about six months in advance. To help you plan your advanced dining reservations and FastPass+ experiences, take a look at the Walt Disney World Resort entertainment schedule where you will find information about what is going on during your visit. You will also find operation hours for all four theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Disney Springs, including Extra Magic Hours. Keep in mind that hours are subject to change without notice, so be sure to check back before you arrive to make sure the hours are still the same. 

    Thanks for visiting us with your question! Please let us know if we can answer other questions you may have.

    Happy Planning!
