    Hello there! Going to be visiting Disney World this August. I'm trying to plan our vacation to make dining reservations soon. Do you know when park hours will be our for August? Thank you

    Hi Jane,

    I am also planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort with my family this August and like you, I am also anxiously awaiting the release of park hours for our trip. The Disney Parks Calendar is your best resource for information regarding park hours for all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and the two water parks. Generally park hours are released approximately 6 months in advance, but do be aware that park hours may continue to be adjusted and changed as you get closer to your trip. Therefore, I always like to recheck the Park Calendar just before leaving on my trip to ensure that I have the most accurate and up-to-date information. Also, if you haven't already done so, be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app, which will allow you to view park hours, make and view FastPass+ selections, and make dining reservations on the go right from the convenience of your mobile device.

    As an uber planner, I am always anxious for park hours information as early as possible, in large part so that I can start plotting and planning those all-important dining reservations! When the 180 day booking window opens for Disney dining reservations, I like to be fully prepared and ready to go. Therefore, in the past I have used both TouringPlans.com and EasyWDW.com to get a sense of historic park information for my vacation dates and to review their calendar predictions for the coming year. You may also find these websites helpful, but please note they are not Disney owned or endorsed.  

    Should you have any further questions as you continue your vacation planning, please feel free to stop back. We would love to hEAR from you!
