    We will be visiting WDW in early December 2019. Can you tell me what the park hours will be then? Also, what will be the schedule for the extra hours? Thanks, Leslie

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Leslie! I'm so excited for you that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort this coming December. That time of year is my favorite time to go! The theme parks and resort hotels are magical throughout the whole year, but there's something extra special about all the beautiful holiday decorations and details. Make sure to get tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party for you and your family so you can wave to Santa on Main Street U.S.A. during the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade!

    It sounds like we have a lot in common, because I also like to thoroughly plan my days at Walt Disney World Resort, and in order to do that you need to know when the parks are open. Park hours, as well as scheduled Extra Magic Hours for guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, are typically made available around six months in advance. When I look at the calendar today, I'm able to see park hours through the end of July, so the hours for your upcoming trip should be posted in the early summer, probably sometime in late May or early June. Park hours and Extra Magic Hours are subject to change, so continue to check the calendar periodically as your vacation gets closer. 

    Have a magical day, Leslie!
