    How far in advance and where can I find out the extended hour schedule of the parks? I want to start thinking about dining places and have to figure out which park to go on which days before we decide where to dine and make reservations. Thanks!

    Hi Karyn! I can already tell you're going to have a magical Walt Disney World trip -- planning your dining reservations around the park schedules is the key to a stress-free vacation! 

    You'll find the calendars for each of the Disney parks at Just click the calendar icon beside the date at the top of the screen, and use the arrows to advance the months. The park calendars appear online about six months in advance. Currently the calendars show Extra Magic Hours through early July, so it may be February before you'll know the park schedules for your August trip.

    We're happy to help you plan your Walt Disney World vacation Karyn! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel with your questions! Wishing you a magical vacation!
