    Hi, We’ll be booking our ADR’s at the 180 day mark and want to avoid morning extra magic hours. I see the Disney park hours calendar only goes out for exactly 180 days. How can I figure out our ADR’s ahead of time if the calendar only goes out 180 days? TY

    Hi Colleen,

    With so many fantastic dining choices including entertaining dinner shows, magical character meals, and cuisines to please any palate, I'm glad to hear that you're thinking ahead about where you'd like to dine on your vacation!

    While you are correct that Disney releases official park hours (including Extra Magic Hours) 180 days in advance, there is a third party site, touringplans.com, that releases hours 190 days in advance and predicts them even further out than that. While I can't guarantee their accuracy until Disney updates their calendar, it's definitely a great place to start. I'd recommend checking out that site, putting together a plan, and making all of your reservations when your dining reservation planning window opens up 180 days prior to your arrival. Then, since park hours are always subject to change, I'd keep an eye on the official park hours calendar from time to time throughout your planning period and make any necessary changes to your planned dining reservations for your trip. I'm sending some pixie dust that you find the perfect dining reservations and your itinerary comes together beautifully.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Colleen, and please feel free to come see us again with any other questions. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
