    We are planning a trip for April and I am able to book our dining in less than two weeks, but park hours are not out yet for mid-April. When can I expect that they will be released?

    Hey there, Bethany! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We’re so happy you stopped by to bring us your question.

    Bethany, it’s always a pleasure to chat with a fellow avid planner. I’m so excited your Advanced Dining Reservation is almost here and you are ready to book all your favorite restaurants! For me, that would include Be Our Guest Restaurant, The Garden Grill, and my current favorite, Boma - Flavors of Africa! I hope you're also planning to visit Epcot during the stunning Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival which will be in full bloom during your visit.

    Schedules are usually released 6-months in advance so keep checking back as those should be posted anytime.
