    We are planning to arrive to WDW in March 2020, We are trying to plan restaurants to book around days. In different parks, When will the March parks hours be posted along with the extra hours for the parks?

    Hi Helen,

    Hooray! I'm SO excited that you'll be visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" next spring! Escaping to sunny Florida to soak up some magic and fun likes the perfect March getaway, plus with the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival going on, you're going to LOVE it!

    You'll find that Disney generally releases official park hours, including Extra Magic Hours, around 180 days in advance. If you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel and have the added benefit of being able to make all of your dining reservations at that 180-day point, it can be tricky to know for sure where you'll be each day without all of the park hours available for your trip. Hakuna Matata...no worries, though, as I do have a tip for you. I'd encourage you to visit touringplans.com where they show park hours 190 days in advance and estimate them even further out than that. Please keep in mind that this isn't an official source, so it is subject to change, but park hours are always subject to change, and I've personally found this a great place to start. I'd suggest mapping out a plan based on the hours you find there, making all of your dining reservations when your window opens at that 180-day point, and then keeping an eye on the official calendar to see if you need to make any changes. I'm sending some pixie dust that you find the perfect dining reservations for your trip!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question, Helen, and please feel free to come see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
