    When will new dates show on calendar for planning in April 2019

    Dear MaryLynn,

    I'm so glad that you decided to stop by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for next year's Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I assuming that you already have your Walt Disney World Resort hotel and tickets purchased, and a Disney Dining Plan if you choose, and that by planning you mean when will you be able to see the Park Hours and reserve your Advanced Dining Reservations?

    The good news is that the Park Hours are released approximately six months from the date that you are looking for, and your Advanced Dining Reservation window opens at exactly 180 days from your check-in date. At that time, you can make reservations for your entire stay. Your FastPass+ selection window opens up 60 days before check-in if you are a Walt Disney World Resort hotel guest, and 30 days before check-in if you are staying off site.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
