    I will be making my meal reservations in a week for our November/December trip to Disney. My struggle is that the extended hours haven't been published yet, so I'm not sure which park to plan for what day. When will the times be published?

    Hi Rebecca,

    How exciting that you will be making your dining reservations in just a weeks time!

    It is difficult when a trip overlaps the end of a month and the hours have not yet been released for the later part of your trip. I have experienced this many times in the past and my suggestion would be to have a look at the pattern of extra morning hours and nighttime parades etc for November and use this as a guide for December. Make some provisional plans and dining reservations based on this information and then keep checking the Walt Disney World website each day to see if the calendar has been updated to include December 2011. As soon as the park hours are available, check these against your provisional plans and make any necessary adjustments.

    If there are any extremely popular restaurants that you wish to attend such as Cinderella's Royal Table, I would schedule this for one of the days in November which you can plan accordingly for prior to making your dining reservations.

    I would expect the park hours for December to be released at the beginning of June 2011. Fingers crossed that they are available just before you have to make your advanced dining reservations.

    Wishing you a magical trip!
