    How far in advance, can you find out which parks will have early hours and/or late hours? Thank you, Tony

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tony!

    I am so excited for your epic adventure next year!  All of your careful planning is certainly going to pay off with a magical vacation.  Get ready to make some incredible memories!

    Extra Magic Hours are one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  The Most Magical Place on Earth typically releases park hours six months in advance so you can plan out your adventures.  For your late February trip, I would recommend you start watching for hours to be released sometime near the end of August of this year.  Hours are subject to change without notice, so keep an eye on your My Disney Experience App to have the most up to date information!

    When my family is planning our visit to the house of mouse, we make our advance dining reservations once the park hours are released.  My son is planning our next trip and he selected dining reservations at the parks that had Extra Magic Hours so we could experience our favorite attractions during those special hours and enjoy meals during the day, maximizing our time in the parks!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another great question, Tony.  Visit us again if you need any additional help as you plan your vacation, we are here 24 hours a day for you!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
