    I love the Moms Panel concept! Now, Mom to Mom... can you tell me when the park hours (including Extra Magic Hours) for January 2009 will be released? We've reached the180 day mark for next year and I would like the hours to plan our dining reservations.

    From one Mom to another Mom, I wish I could tell you when the January hours will be posted. Can you believe that I'm waiting for them too??!!

    I've got a rough draft plan for our January trip but I'm hoping the actual hours are released prior to having to call for our family's Advance Dining Reservations. Your family must be traveling in early January.

    For now, look at the historical hours at From there, click on the Info Central tab. Scroll down. Under Park Hours, click on Historical Park Hours Archive. Start making a rough draft of your plans using the hours that were published for 2008. Then when the 2009 hours are released, you should have most of your work already done and just need to do some fine-tuning.

    Let's hope that all of our fellow January WDW travelers do not have to wait much longer for the park hours to be released. Relax, Mom. January is a GREAT time to visit WDW!

    Happy planning and wishing you some pixie dust too!
