    Hi Moms, I'm at my 180 window and cant see the park hours for the length of my trip, but I can make dining reservations...any idea why??? doesn't make sense to be able to make reservations without knowing park hours, at least for me. thanks!

    Hi Jill,

    I discovered a trick not too long ago that is exactly what you need right now! You're absolutely correct that the calendar will only show park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and parade and nighttime show times up to 180 days in advance, and sometimes not even that far. When it's time to make dining reservations, though, I love to have my itinerary all planned out so I know which theme park I'll be at each day. Well, here's where my trick comes in SUPER handy! With just a little bit of pixie dust, you'll have access to 190 days of planning information!

    You'll simply need to log in to your My Disney Experience account and click on "My Itinerary." Over on the left-hand side, choose "Add Plans," then click "Add Parks & Places." When you change the date on the calendar at the top of the page, you'll notice that Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo...you automagically have access to all of the park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and parade and nighttime show times for the next 190 days! That should make planning the perfect dining reservations much easier!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jill, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
