    When will park hours be released for October 2018? We are going the first week of October so I'm hoping that the park hours will be released by the time we can schedule our dining reservations at the 180 day mark (April 3, 2018).

    Hi Heather! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    As an avid planner, having those schedules as early as I can get my hands on them is super important! So I completely understand wanting to know when those are released. You'll find that those are typically released about 6-months in advance, which is just about the time to get your dining reservations locked in! 

    I gave the park schedules a quick look and currently it's showing through the end of August, 2018. So, I'd say check back in 4-5 weeks and you should be able to see your schedules for October posted. If for some reason they are delayed, I recommend you still lock in your dining wish-list. You can always modify it later. Some of the hard-to-get reservations you'll want to hold on to. But in my experience, you can find availability for most anything up to 24-hours prior to your desired date and time if you keep checking back.  It's also good to maintain some flexibility since schedules can change without notice. 

    I hope you have fun dreaming up and planning your magical and oh so delicious visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. If you need any dining recommendations, planning tips, or if you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to stop by! 

    TTFN; ta ta for now!
