    What if the June 2009 calendar is not yet listed on the WDW site and my 180 day mark for ADRs occurs? How can I plan my ADRs if I don't know yet what dates are Extra Magic Hours, what the park times are, etc?

    I, too, am trying to plan our June trip and understand your frustration in not being able to plan without the park hours.  We Moms don't have any "inside" knowledge to when they will be shared and find out along with the general public.  

    However, because of improvements being made to the reservation system, we can't currently make advanced dining reservations yet for places other than Chef Mickey's, Cinderella's Royal Table, and Victoria and Alberts.  In fact I was actually on the phone with dining today, and the cast member thought calling back mid-to late January may be the time to begin making other reservations.  Hopefully by then, the park hours will then be available.  

    If this helps, I can share you the trend (not guaranteed to be the same in June) of days when Extra Magic Hours are offered:

    Magic Kingdom AM on Thursdays
    Magic Kingdom PM on Sundays
    Animal Kingdom AM on Mondays
    Animal Kingdom PM on Wednesdays
    Epcot AM on Tuesdays
    Epcot PM on Fridays
    DHS AM on Saturday (the PM EMH were more random)

    This is what I've used to do my pre-planning for our trip and did book CRT and Chef Mickey's.
