    When are park hours and extra magic hours schedule being released for 2019?

    Hi Jennifer! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for stopping by with your question about Extra Magic Hours. It just happens to be my favorite benefit of being a Walt Disney World Resort hotel guest!

    In my planning experience, the Park Hours calendar will give you lots of information, including Park Hours and Extra Magic Hours locations and times, in six-month chunks. For example, right now, I’m able to view information for Walt Disney World Resort theme and water parks through January 2019.

    Jennifer, I suggest re-visiting the Park Hours Calendar in September, that way you will be able to view all of March 2019. I always like to see the whole month when I'm planning my vacation, so I select the month view. It helps me to plan out my days because I love to spend extra time at the theme parks where Extra Magic Hours are offered.  

    It also helps me plan my advance dining reservations because I know where my family will be, then I make our  FastPass+ selections. I always try to get those selections in on the 60-day mark when I’m staying at a Disney Resort hotel (another perk of being a Disney Resort hotel guest, hooray!). Guests staying off-site can make FastPass+ selections 30 days before their planned vacation. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you as you continue planning your trip. Please feel free to come back to see us soon if you need any suggestions! Helping you plan your magical vacation is our favorite thing to do!
