    How can we find out which parks have extended hours on what days? We are staying at Shades of Green from Dec 15-18 and are trying to plan which parks to do each day and want to coordinate our plans with the extended hours.

    Hi Linda,

    I'm very pleased to hEAR you are already thinking about coordinating your daily schedule with the extended theme park hours. As a Guest staying at the Shades of Green® Resort you will certainly be able to enjoy Extra Magic Hours. To determine your daily itinerary and plan ahead, take a look at the Walt Disney World Resort calendars. If you have younger children traveling with you, I recommend the morning Extra Magic Hours. If you are visiting with teens, then perhaps the evening Extra Magic Hours might be preferable. However, if your family is anything like mine you'll probably take full advantage of both!

    As you continue planning, consider reserving up to 3 FastPass+ selections for each park day. You will be able to secure your choices 30 days in advance of each theme park visit day (one-day-at-a-time). Once you've redeemed the initial set of FastPass+ selections – or the last arrival window for the last one has already passed – you can make additional FastPass+ selections (one at a time) for the same day via the My Disney Experience mobile app or at an in-park FastPass+ Kiosk. After you've used the fourth FastPass+ entitlement, you'll be able to make a fifth selection and so on, up to park closing.

    If you haven't already done it, please book advanced dining reservations soon. Restaurant reservations can be made 180 days in advance of your visit.

    Wishing you a most memorable visit to the place where The Magic is Endless!
