    I’m planning a trip to WDW in December. I see that park hours are not announced yet. Do you know when they will be? Also, if I reserve a park before the hours are announced, can I change the reservation once the hours are available? Thanks!

    Hi Tracey and welcome back to planDisney, it’s great to see you here with your excellent question!

    How very lucky I am to be answering a question from a fellow Canadian Disney fan and Guest! Tracey, you will be vacationing during my favourite time of the year with the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort, congratulations!

    Tracey, you are correct, at this time, the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park Hours calendar does not reflect operating hours for your intended visit, I apologize for the inconvenience. My personal experience in keeping track of theme park hour calendars over the years, is that they are typically posted approximately 60 to 75 days in advance. 

    I recommend securing your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations as soon as you can with the peace of mind knowing that you can modify your Theme Park Reservations for dates, theme park and travel party members, pending availability, later on via the Disney Park Pass System link under My Disney Experience planning area on the top right of the main page once signed in to your Disney account online.

    Tracey, I hope you consider attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party during your visit. Your special event separate ticket will enable you access to the Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:00 PM and best of all, you do not need a Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservation to attend this jolly party. I like to make an early Disney Dining Reservation between 4:00 PM and 5:30 PM at a Table-Service venue inside Magic Kingdom Park in preparation for the party which begins at 7:00 PM. The yuletide joy and the merriest entertainment will enable you to savour the season at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Tracey, it was such an honour assisting you today, please stop by planDisney for more of my first-hand tips and advice - it’s so much fun helping fellow Canadian Disney fans - you’ve got a friend in me!

    Best Disney Wishes!
