    Hi, Are more time slots added for Resturant reservations at the park after Disney extends the park hours? Thanks!

    Welcome BACK, Hamna!

    How exciting that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Disney decorated for the winter holidays is not just a festive treat for your eyes, your nose will also love the larger-than-life Gingerbread Displays at select Disney Resort Hotels, which all guests are more than welcome to visit.

    Generally speaking, dining locations set their hours based on the theme park hours, so it is possible that some will open more reservations if park hours are extended. However, some locations are owned and operated by third party companies, so it's up to those companies as to what they'll do. But do know that you'll never be without the opportunity to find food as one Quick-Service location is usually open until closing time, if not until slightly after, like Casey's Corner in Magic Kingdom Park.

    It never hurts to keep checking for Dining Reservations. My family usually plans our Walt Disney World Resort vacations with such short notice that we end up dining at odd times, but we've still enjoyed meals at some of the most popular locations like Be Our Guest, 50's Prime Time Cafe, and Chef Mickey's. I actually love to "look and book" Disney Dining Reservations on the My Disney Experience Mobile App when I'm out running errands; I'll browse what's available when I'm in line at the bank or waiting in the car rider pick-up lane.

    I hope this helped, Hamna, and We'll See You Real Soon!
