    Good morning everyone!! I was just curious if anyone had any idea when Disney usually releases the schedule for extra magic hours for September?

    Hi Steve, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Extra Magic Hours dates and times are usually available 6-months in advance. To plan accordingly for your amazing trip in September, you will probably find the information available in early April. To be ready to use that information when it is released, I always plan full daily itineraries for Theme Parks and then assign them to specific dates once the Extra Magic Hours information is out. 

    This strategy helps me to be ready to make dining reservations once the booking window opens, 180 days before my arrival. Then, 210 days ahead of my trip, I start visiting the website daily to monitor the furthest available information about Extra Magic Hours and adjust my plans accordingly.

    Magical Tip: Because you are coming in September, you may also like to attend my favorite seasonal party, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It has special entertainment like the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular and all Guests are welcome to attend wearing costumes. It is super fun! 

    Please stop by if you need more advice before September comes. The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to make your vacation as unforgettable as it can be! 

    May the magic be with you,
