    I have a trip booked for August 2017. I can book ADR's feb 17th. Will the park hours for August be released when I go to make my ADR's???

    Hello Courtney! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Like you will be on February 17th, I am just about to reach my 180-day window to book Advanced Dining Reservations for my upcoming April 2018 Walt Disney World Resort vacation. The scheduled Park Hours are currently released exactly 180 days into the future.

    Hopefully, Walt Disney World Resort will release Park Hours and schedules beyond the 180-day mark to accommodate planning for Advanced Dining Reservations and Events and Tours as they have in the past. If not, I recommend that you make initial plans and book those hard-to-get Advanced Dining Reservations for Dining Locations like Be Our Guest restaurant at the 180-day mark.

    If you are staying on property, you have the added benefit of making Advanced Dining Reservations at the 180-day mark for up to 10 days of your vacation. If the schedule has not been released at that time, you may want to check schedules from past years at Walt Disney World Resort for an idea of what you may expect for Park Hours (some Disney fans keep detailed records online).

    While not ideal, Park Hours and Schedules are subject to change at any time and without notice, so be sure to check in occasionally before your Walt Disney World Resort vacation to ensure that your scheduling is not effected.

    Happy Planning!
