    Hi!! My question is about the early magic hrs. I want to reserve dining 180 days in advanced and doing one park per day how do I know which one is doing the emh so my reservations are at the same park. I want to take full advantage of emh And reserving. Ty

    Hi Kenneth,

    It makes me happy to see that you're planning your vacation so far in advance! I'm a big planner, too, and love putting together the perfect plan for my family vacations as early as possible!

    While I used to have a shortcut to see park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and parade and fireworks show times 190 days in advance, My Disney Experience was updated this past fall to make things easier for Guests to navigate, and while I love the changes, my little workaround is no longer available. At this point, there is no official source for park hours any farther out than 180 days in advance, as Disney usually updates the calendar around 180 days beforehand. There is a third party site, touringplans.com, that offers park hours farther out than 180 days, but they require a paid subscription to view them, and being that it's not an official source, I cannot guarantee its accuracy.

    Since park hours and Extra Magic Hours are always subject to change anyway, my advice is to go ahead and make your dining reservations for the entire length of your trip at that 180-day point if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel and can take advantage of that great perk. Then, I'd suggest watching the calendar like a hawk, and making any changes necessary to your dining reservations or itinerary as each new day's hours are released. I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll find the perfect dining reservations for your trip!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kenneth, and please feel free to bring us more questions as you're planning your visit. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
