    Hi I am due to book my dining reservations tomorrow at our 180 day mark. When will Disney releases their extra magic hours for July 2019? Thanks

    Hi, Lisa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I understand your excitement: your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is now less than six months away and you’re ready to jump in and start planning your days! I know how important it is to coordinate dining with your Theme Park plans, and knowing when Extra Magic Hours will be offered is definitely a piece of that puzzle.

    Typically, Walt Disney World Resort publishes Park Hours and Extra Magic Hours 180 days in advance--the same window as booking Advanced Dining Reservations. As a Guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, though, you can book those dining experiences for up to 10 days after your initial Check-In date at the 180-day mark (while you might only see the Extra Magic Hours published one day at a time).

    My suggestion would be to make sure you go ahead and grab those hard-to-get spots as soon as possible. These might include Cinderella’s Royal Table or Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park, California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, or the all-new Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. 

    Remember, Park Hours (including Extra Magic Hours) are subject to change without notice, so go ahead and book your family’s must-enjoy restaurants today!

    Enjoy your stay, and please let us know if you have any additional questions.
