    For my last trip, park hours were available before i did my ADRs, making planning easy. It looks like this won't be the case this time, did i get lucky or do they put on the hours just before you 180 days window opens up on your account.Cheers Adam

    Hi Adam!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Walt Disney World park hours are usually announced 180 days in advance, but sometimes the park hours might be available slightly earlier, so it is always worth checking the calendar: Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. For Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests, dining reservations can be made at the 180-day mark, for the first 10 days of your trip, and then day-by-day thereafter. For anyone staying off-property, they have to be made one day at a time. If you are thinking of making a dining reservation at a restaurant inside one of the parks, these can often be made outside of park hours, at either end of the day (regardless of whether there are Extra Magic Hours operating at that park on that day) - so if you cannot see the park hours while you are booking your first 10 days of dining, you can still make early or late reservations at your chosen park, subject to availability, even if you don't yet know the exact opening and closing times for that park.

    Dining reservations can be made online, by phone (including the freephone UK number for dining reservations on this Walt Disney World phone directory), or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World.
