    I understand that Extra Magic hours are available to WDW Hotel guests. I would like to book FastPass+ but am unsure if I will know which park will have extra hours on which day.

    Hello, Angelika!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on doing your planning so thoroughly. It's not only effective: it's also the perfect way to start living the magic before leaving home!

    I'm super happy to share that you can already check the Extra Magic Hours for each Theme Park using this calendar. A monthly view will be available if you click the first option on the left, and I think it will be perfect for your December trip.

    It also allows you to choose among the four Theme Parks, two Water Parks and Disney Springs, so it's super handy for your planning moments. If you have a reservation at a Disney Resort hotel, you will be able to book your FastPass+ reservations 60 days before your check-in date, on October 21. That feature is a massive game-changer, especially during the holidays. Among the many benefits offered to Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels, this is one of the most strategic.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge's Christmas decorations are FANTASTIC, so you might want to take a look at them. Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Coronado Springs Resort will also be incredible options for the most wonderful time of the year, so it's worth to take a look at them. 

    If you're staying at other hotels, you will be able to access the system on November 20, so make sure you set an alarm for one of those dates, at 7:00 AM Eastern Time.

    I hope these tips help you make fantastic reservations and plans, Angelika. Please let us know if you need any more help before your amazing trip is here. We are always here for you!

    May the magic be with you,
