    Hello, I'm trying to book my hotels for July 2019 but I usually plan my visit around the extra magic hours. Could you please let me know if the park hours are available for July 2019? Thanks in advance!!

    Hi Michael!

    Taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours is a fantastic way to make the most of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort, so I completely understand wanting to be sure that you can use this incredible perk!

    Although hours of operation for all of the parks are always subject to change, generally, park hours are released about 180 days in advance.  This means that the park hours for next July have not yet been released.  I would keep checking back just in case they are released early, but once those hours are released, you will be able to view them on the interactive calendar.  This calendar will also show you which park will offer Extra Magic Hours each day!

    To help ensure that you fit as much magic into your trip as possible, and since you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, make sure you also take advantage of the 60-day FastPass+ booking window!  This will allow you to make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance (and up to 30 days before Guests staying off-property).  All of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel will help you immerse yourself in the magic, but if for some reason you can't get a FastPass+ selection you want or can't attend Extra Magic Hours one day, in my experience, arriving at the parks early and "rope-dropping" is always a great option!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
