    We (2 grandparents, 2 Adults ad 2 children) are DVC members staying at the Boardwalk Villas from 9/5 - 9/13/24. Where can we find the Park Hours during out stay?

    Welcome Home, Marcy! Thanks for making your first visit to planDisney. I love getting to chat with fellow Disney Vacation Club Members, and I'm delighted to help track down the information you're looking for to make your upcoming vacation as magical as can be!

    Disney's BoardWalk Villas is a practically perfect home base for your fall trip--what a great choice! The location is fantastic, with the ability to walk to EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios, or catch a FriendShip Boat for a relaxing cruise. I love to start the morning with a run around Crescent Lake and Lake Hollywood!

    During your vacation, you will definitely want to check out the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, which will run this year from August 29 to November 23. Plan to spend a day (or maybe two!) sampling delicious treats from around the world, and wind down in the evening with the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, featuring some great bands. 

    Marcy, Park Hours for all of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and water parks are typically posted online between 60 and 75 days in advance. For your early September visit, I would check back beginning in late June for the most up-to-date information. Initially the hours will be fairly standard, but as your check-in date approaches the schedule will update to reflect increased hours, with certain parks opening early on some days, and others remaining open later into the evenings. 

    As Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Guests, you can enjoy Early Theme Park Entry and dive into your Disney day 30 minutes prior to the posted park opening. If you're early risers like my family, it's a great head start and you can usually fit in an attraction or two before the rest of the crowds begin building up. 

    But wait--there's more!  Since you made the excellent decision to stay in a Deluxe Villa, you'll get to close down the parks on certain evenings with Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. These extended hours are only available to guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts, Deluxe Villa Resorts, and a few other select properties. You'll have an additional opportunity to snag a Virtual Queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom Park, or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. 

    I hope this information is helpful for your planning purposes, Marcy! Please don't hesitate to send any other questions about DVC or Walt Disney World--and keep an eye on those park hours. Thanks again for stopping by planDisney!

    Stay Magical!
