    Planning my next itinerary, but if the park and show hours do not come out until 6 mo. prior then how can I decide where I'm going to be each day in advance of that 6 mo.point where I have to schedule dining reservations? Any info? Need to know EMH days

    Hello Stephanie, thanks for stopping by with your question.  I am glad to see you are already planning your Walt Disney World vacation.

    It has been my experience that the park hour schedule comes out a few weeks prior to your 180 days mark.  Right now, the calendar goes through the end of March 2016 which keeps inline with what I have experienced.  As long as you check a week or so before making your dining reservations, you should have all of the information you need to plan your days at Walt Disney World.  What I like to do is plan our day around what sit down meal we will be enjoying.  So if we are dining at Tusker House, which is in Animal Kingdom, we will spend a majority of our day there.  So I've got that day planned and then when the calendar comes out, I will try to make reservations for the day Animal Kingdom has Extra Magic Hours.  I preplan our days and then just arrange the order of where we go when based on the park calendar.  

    I hope this helps!  If you have any other questions, please come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
