    Planning for trip in Jan '15. Park hours have not been released yet but I want to have planned which parks we will visit on which days when I call for ADRs at 180 day mark. When will park hours be released with EMH? Is it only 180 days before? Thanks

    Hi Kimberly! 

    You are a planner after my own heart, love that!  Planning my family's Walt Disney World vacation is almost as fun as taking it. (Almost!)  

    I agree it can be a bit challenging to book your Advanced Dining Reservations without knowing which park you will be visiting that day.  Park calendars and Extra Magic Hours are usually released around 6 months ahead of time, so hopefully they will show up before you need to make your reservations.  If they are not available, I like to look at the online crowd calendars to see what they estimate the Extra Magic Hours to be for our vacation dates. 

    Please let me know if there is anything else I may assist you with.  Until then, happy planning and have a delightfully Disney day.

    Magical Wishes,

Hi-ya, Pals! I'm Lauren, a wife and mother of three who's enjoyed many special occasions at Walt Disney World Resort with my family and friends. From graduations to birthdays, and even our Fairy Tale Honeymoon we’ve loved celebrating at the most Magical Place on Earth. I now have pre-teens who check wait times in the My Disney Experience App just for fun, so I look for any excuse to return "home" often and would love to help you plan a little extra Pixie Dust for your next magical adventure.
