    Hi Moms, another question :) How far in advance are the extra magic hours announced? I am not able to afford the park hopper option and want to plan my days carefully!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melinda! 

    Planning your park days around potential Extra Magic Hour opportunities is an excellent way to maximize your time when a Park Hopper pass isn't in the budget. You're already a pro!

    Walt Disney World Resort park hours, including Extra Magic Hours, are announced 190 days in advance and can be found on the Walt Disney World website. You can find available hours for your time of visit by selecting the highlighted link above, and then selecting the calendar icon next to the date at the top of the page, you can then advance to your desired month and day for more detailed information.

    I hope this helps, Melinda! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have as you plan and prepare for your vacation. We are here to help!

    Happy Planning!
