    I want to reserve the parks I am visiting in August 2022. I like to know the park times to take advantage of extra hours. I can't find where they are posted.

    Mouskehey, Mouskehi, Mouskeho, Joseph!

    Welcome to planDisney! I can tell you're a thinking and a solving working througher when it comes to planning your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I'm happy to share some mousketools with you today that will help guide your visit during The World's Most Magical Celebration.

    Park hours are currently available through the middle of May. In my experience, Disney releases park hours approximately two to two and a half months in advance, so I'd keep an eye out for August dates to be released sometime in June.

    30-minute early theme park entry for Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and other select hotels listed on the site occurs at all four theme parks every day, which is great news for your park pass planning. Extended evening hours are available to Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts and Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts on select days at select parks. The Extended Evening Theme Park Hours schedule is available at the bottom of the page. Currently, EPCOT is consistently scheduled for extended evening hours on Mondays, and Magic Kingdom Park is scheduled mostly on Wednesdays with a few Tuesdays thrown in the mix. Hollywood Studios even appears on the schedule once!

    Currently, valid admission, a park pass reservation, and a method of entry connected to your My Disney Experience account are required to enter the theme parks. The current schedule gives you a good idea if you want to proceed with reserving a certain park each day. You can always cancel your park pass reservations and reschedule for another park if need be. Just be sure to confirm park availability first. This happened to my family on a recent family vacation. We reworked our schedule so we could experience extended evening hours at Magic Kingdom and I'm so glad we did! My son and I practically had the Astro Orbiter to ourselves and it would have taken us a full day to experience the number of attractions we experienced in just a few hours. If you're planning to take advantage of extended evening hours, I highly recommend a power nap.

    Plan magic; planDisney.
