    It's March 15th and WDW still does not have their updated hours for the parks released yet. Is this normal? It makes it a lot harder to plan when you are only weeks away from your trip and the actual hours are not released

    Hi Michael and welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm excited to see your magical Walt Disney World vacation is just a month away!  Spring is such a wonderful time to visit, especially to see the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.  We visited EPCOT yesterday and my kids loved seeing all of their favorite characters as beautiful topiaries around the park.  My son ventured over to the Magnolia Terrace outdoor kitchen for the bananas foster bread pudding and said it was delicious.  I love all of the outdoor kitchen food options to taste around the world.

    I do see there are park hours posted until mid-May, so that does cover your visit next month.  The park hours include Early Theme Park Entry Hours, Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, and hours for the newly returning EPCOT Forever nighttime show and Happily Ever After nighttime show at Magic Kingdom Park.  Since the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration will be ending soon, hours for select shows and parades may not be updated just yet until the transition is sorted out.  

    Walt Disney World is starting to get a sprinkling of the Disney's 100th anniversary celebration.  You'll find lots of beautiful souvenirs in the gift shops like, shirts, blankets, ornaments, pins and much more.  I'm really excited for all of the new ways to celebrate Disney turning 100!

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
