    We have a trip to WDW the 1st week of November. The Disney calendar only goes to August. Is there much change in Magic Hours and special shows each day? Example: if this week Magic hours are Tues. for the Animal park, will they still be tues. in Nov?

    Hi Debbie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You must be so excited to plan your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! I have visited the first week of November a few times and each trip has been great. The weather tends to be a little cooler and the decorations begin to change from fall to Christmas. It is dreamy!

    Schedules can vary, so it is difficult to predict how similar they will be to current park hours. Special events like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party also come into play when it comes to the November calendar. I know this makes it hard to plan now, but the good news is that the schedule typically opens 180 days in advance. This means you should expect to see the November calendar beginning in May.

    Sometimes, I will do an internet search for "Walt Disney World park hours" and then the month from last year (so November 2018 in your case) to see what Park Hours looked like then. I will put together a rough outline of a schedule for our trip, then simply switch days around once the calendar for this year comes up and I see what days and/or hours are different. Even though it will probably be different from last year, it can at least give you a little bit of an idea of what to expect.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Debbie! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
