    Two questions. Does anyone know when they are going to expand Disney after hours to April? And does anyone know when dinner packages would be available to go with concerts

    Hey there, Julieann!

    May I assume from your question that you plan to visit Epcot this coming April? If so, you're going to love the 2018 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. I can't think of anyplace more beautiful than Epcot in April. Spring is my favorite time of year to visit because the temperatures are typically mild and the flowers are drop-dead gorgeous. It's the perfect escape after a brutal northern winter.

    It appears that Extra Magic Hours for April have been posted. Guests of Disney Resort hotels with theme park tickets can enter Epcot early or stay late on specified dates throughout the year. To see which days Epcot will be open for Extra Magic Hours, click on the "Epcot" tab under "Parks and Tickets" at www.disneyworld.com. Scroll midway down the page to the square calendar icon. Select the date you'd like to investigate. If Extra Magic Hours will be offered that day, they will be listed there. It looks like evening Extra Magic Hours are available at Epcot on Tuesdays in April.

    As for the availability of dining packages for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, it looks like they were released last year in early February. Chances are good that they will be released at a similar time for 2018. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as they will make the announcement when the packages are released.

    Wishing you a beautiful spring,
