    Planning trip 8/9..when will they have schedules for EMH in parks and parade times? Will it be similar to last Aug so I can semi plan schedules now? Recommendations on first character meal for that evening? or should we do Shutters (staying at CBR)?

    Hi, Jennifer!  I hope you're having a great time planning for your upcoming vacation!

    I find that the park hours are fairly similar from year to year, as they tend to be seasonally driven, so you may find that last August's calendar will be somewhat similar to the calendar for this coming August.  The things most likely to be different are the schedules for things like fireworks, parades, and Fantasmic. 

    You should have access to the calendar for this August at least 90 days in advance.  That will give you plenty of time to plan your dining reservations!

    As for the first night character meal, my girls LOVE to start their vacation with a trip to Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort.  It just puts everyone in a very Walt Disney World mood!
