    Hello, we are planning our vacation a few days before Christmas & booking dining around park times, magic hours & shows, Fantasmic. Unfortunately,these dates are not available to view at this time, do you know if they will be out before June 24th?

    Hi Tanisha,

    This time last year my family was preparing for our trip to the Walt Disney World Resorts during the week between Christmas and New Years. We were a party of nine, and my husband and daughter wanted great options for our family who was traveling with us for the first time. 

    The calendar becomes open at the 180 day mark for Advance Dining Reservations. The park calendar should be open at the same time. This makes it easy to plan dining for the park you are touring.

    If a park schedule is not available, you should have time to adjust dining if necessary. Many guests are not looking this far in advance.

    I would recommend dining at the resorts during the holiday season. The resorts are beautifully decorated and you get a break from the crowded parks.

    Wishing you a magical day!
