    Hello Janine!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You are in good company as I, and many of the Disney Park Moms, also find it thrilling when planning an Endlessly Magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation weeks, months and even years in advance!

    Extra Magic Hours are updated with Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park Hours on the Calendars site in a column beside the scheduled hours for each of the 4 parks, the 2 water parks, Disney Springs and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.  Note that all Park Hours, including Extra Magic Hours may change without notice and in my opinion, frequently do.  I check Park Hours before I make any Advanced Dining reservations, FastPass+ selections and any large scale decisions to ensure that they have not changed (up to and including 2 weeks prior to my vacation).

    Guests may book Advanced Dining Reservations for Walt Disney World Resort Dining Locations up to 180 days in advance of their scheduled trip online or by contacting (407)939-3463.  The Disney Reservation Center is available by phone from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM Monday through Friday, and 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can book reservations for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days) beginning 180 days prior to your arrival date.

    FastPass+ selections can be made up to 60 days in advance for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort (for the entire length of your stay).  Guests with Theme Park Tickets can make FastPass+ prior to the day they will be used.

    Stay Excited, Janine!  For many of us, the Magic starts Now!
