    Visiting WDW in Nov., 2013 for 10 days. We are trying to get a dining itinerary together. It's my understanding that I can't make dining reservations until May, so when will the park hours be posted for that time of year? We'd like to get a headstart.

    Hi, Monica!  You can begin booking dining reservations a 180 days prior to your arrival.  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, you can book for ten days, so you will be able to make reservations for your whole trip on your first day.

    They usually have the park hours posted at around the same time that dining reservations are beginning to open up.  They try to post the schedule at least six months in advance, knowing that guests like to coordinate their dining reservations with their theme park days.

    Have a great time planning!  Laying out a dining itinerary is one of my favorite things to do when planning a Disney World vacation!
