    First question in a while,but would like to know when Disney will put out extra magic hours for Dec. We have a vacation planned for Nov. 30 thru Dec.7. Thanks so much for all the help.

    Hi Larry,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm really excited to hear that you have another vacation planned, and it just happens to be during my very favorite time of the year! The entire Resort will be decked out in spectacular Christmas decor, and with so many wonderful special events going on, your heart will be filled with Disney magic and holiday joy!

    Extra Magic Hours are a wonderful perk for Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel. My family loves arriving at a theme park an hour early or getting to stay two hours after the theme park. I mean, having access to our favorite attractions with much smaller crowds? Yes, please! I'm happy to let you know that park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and even parade and fireworks schedules will be released approximately 180 days in advance. As you approach that 180-day point, I'd encourage you to keep an eye on the calendar for updates so that you can begin planning how you'll turn your Disney wishes into dreams come true. Don't forget that you'll be able to make your dining reservations 180 days in advance, too! It's always so much fun to see your itinerary and plans come together.

    Thanks so much for stopping by to see us again, Larry, and please let us know how else we can help as you're planning your next trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
