    Hi there! We have a trip booked for the beginning of February 2017 and I have not been seeing times released for parades and some shows and would really like to have an idea of what time things are available. When are these generally released?

    Hi, Jackie!
    I completely understand your worries!

    From my experience watching all of the schedules build out on the Walt Disney World Resort website, I've noticed some of the times for big shows and attractions pop up one to two or even three months ahead of time. I'd recommend looking at the current times for some of the shows and create a temporary schedule for your trip and be ready to change if you need to.

    For example, I had set up a 4:00 PM Dinner at Tiffins because Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park closed at 4:00 PM. But I ended up changing our reservation times two additional times since the park closing time changed. It's not set to close at 6:00 PM on the day my family plans to visit. I just made a point of checking the schedules once a week until I felt confident I had done everything I could to get my plan set the way I wanted.

    I hope that helps as you get closer to your visit! I know it will be a magical experience.
