    Hello there I am going to disney world this year and hopefully you could help. i was wondering how we would be able to find the extra magic hour times for August or do you know how close to August they might be shown? Many thanks 

    Hello, dear Freya! 

    I'm sure that we can help you with these questions and, hopefully, many more! Thank you for bringing them to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    I'm super happy to tell you that you will be able to see the Extra Magic Hours calendar for your upcoming August trip roughly 180 days before your arrival. Depending on your travel dates, you can start visiting the Walt Disney World Resort calendar beginning on March 1! 
    The calendar is continuously updated with information about Special Events like the awesome Disney After Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Disney Villains After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park. While these events may not show until June, they are fantastic and can be the cherry on top of a perfectly planned vacation! 
    If you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you'll be able to make FastPass+ selections in June, so you have plenty of time to strategize around Theme Parks visits, resort days, Water Park splashes, and more! 

    You can already download the My Disney Experience app so that you're familiar with its interface when it's time to book meals and FastPass+ selections. It will allow you to understand the dining reservation process so that you can reserve a few strategic meals to meet magical personalities over stellar cuisine, for example. 
    I hope that these tips help you make the most of your days at the Walt Disney World Resort, Freya! If more questions pop up before August is here, please, let us know. We love to help kind Guests like you!
    May the magic be with you,
