    We are planning our trip beginning of March. When do you think the March calendar will be out, park times, extra magic hours? I was hoping to find all that info out before I can make dinning reservations. Which can be made 180 days out right?

    Hi Danielle,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! A trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in early March sounds like a WONDERFUL way to welcome in springtime! While official dates haven't been released, my guess is that the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full bloom, so hopefully you'll be able to spend some time at Epcot enjoying all of the beautiful floral displays, delicious food, entertaining concerts, and unique exhibits.

    The park hours calendar usually provides information for the next 180 days, but I have a little trick I can share with you that will give you access to park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and show times for parades and fireworks for the next 190 days! All you'll need to do is log in to your My Disney Experience account and choose "My Itinerary." Next, click "Add Plans," then "Add Parks + Places." At the top of the screen, you'll see a calendar and when you click on that, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! You'll find that you have access to 190 days of planning information!

    This should give you just enough time to put together the perfect itinerary so that you're ready to make your dining reservations when your window opens 180 days in advance. If you have a Disney Resort hotel reservation linked to your account, you'll find that you may make dining reservations for the entire length of your stay, up to 10 days, at that 180-day point, which is a great perk!

    Have a BLAST planning your trip, Danielle, and please let us know if you have any other questions. I hope that you enjoy a truly magical...and delicious...vacation next spring!
