    How can I find out which parks will have extra magic hours during my visit?

    Hello, Mary! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Let's get to your question because time is PRECIOUS when it comes to Extra Magic Hours, dining reservations, and FastPass+ arrangements. You will find a full Extra Magic Hours calendar at the Walt Disney World Resort website so that you can make informed plans for your September trip. 

    This calendar allows you to select Theme and Water Parks, and it will also give you the dates for Special Events like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It's a vital tool for any Disney planning journey! 

    Your dining reservation window will open soon, so let's get to it! The system will open 180 days before the day you intend to visit. If you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you'll be able to book dining reservations for up to 10 days, beginning 180 days before your arrival date. The window opens at 6 a.m EST online (through the website and the My Disney Experience app) and 7 a.m. EST for reservations made over the phone. 

    Please let us know if you want more advice before your amazing trip is here, Mary. We love to share tips about our favorite restaurants!

    May the magic be with you,
