    Hi ladies! We are visiting WDW the first week of January 2017. Do you think that Disney will add more Extra Magic Hours or even just general park hours to the current schedule? Thanks so much for all the information you provide.

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    What a way to begin a brand New Year!  A Walt Disney World vacation is just what you need to bring in 2017.  Although it seems so far away, January will be knocking on your door real soon and the MAGIC will soon surround you.  Let's get started.

    I really wish I could be a fly on the wall when Disney Cast Members meet to decide if more Extra Magic Hours are needed or if park hours should be extended.  Unfortunately, we do not have any insight into such decisions.  My advice would be to make the most of the hours you do have.  In the meantime, I will send some pixie dust your way in hopes that more time is added to the park hours.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Should you need a day or an evening away from the parks, visit Disney Springs for some unique dining and shopping experiences

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
