    hello Team, we will be in WDW the first week of May. I've seen that the Park hours have been extended, but the restaurant hours have not.

    Hi there, Susan! Welcome to planDisney! I’m so excited to talk to you about your Walt Disney World vacation, which is just around the corner! You are not the only Guest who has recently noticed a happy development -- the extension of Park Hours at the Disney Parks! As it becomes increasingly possible for more people to return to the magic safely, we will hopefully continue to see continued exciting developments such as this! It looks like the change in Park Hours may have come a few days ahead of the Restaurant hours being adapted. If you go ahead and take another look now, I think you will see that these are starting to match up! If not, I am sure it will only be a matter of time before they do. This may also be a great time to pick up some additional dining reservations that you had your heart set on, or at least set up some new alerts via the Touring Plans Reservation finder so that you can be alerted when more spots become available! 

    Susan, I hope that this information helps you continue to make magical summer plans! Before your vacation, be sure you download the My Disney Experience Mobile App's latest version and familiarize yourself with it. This will allow you to link your family members to your account so you can easily make Park Pass Reservations for them. Also, make sure you check out the latest recommendations and procedures put in place since the phased reopening, which are outlined on the Experience Updates pages. I recommend that you have a look around to learn more about what incredible things await you during your next visit! Meanwhile, know that we are always here to answer any question and help in any way we can! Come back and see us again anytime.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
