    Hi, we will be at WDW 9/29-10/6.The schedule for Oct. isn't out yet, but am trying to plan and make ADR's. It's challenging when I don't know when the EMH are. Any advice? We have ADR in HW and touring a diff park that day.How do I pull it all together?

    Hi, Lynn!  It can get overwhelming, and I completely understand how you are feeling!  Those extra magic hours put a kink in the works for me every trip.  I always forget to check for them before I make my advanced dining reservations!

    The calendar is supposed to be out for the current month, plus three months ahead, so you should be seeing the October calendar shortly.  Hopefully, it will be out in time for you to alter your plans if you feel like you need to do so.  You can absolutely have a meal in one park even if you plan to visit a different park that day.  Thank goodness for Walt Disney World transportation!  It can make it much easier than having to move a car from one parking lot to another, although if you do have a car with you and wish to move it, you don't need to pay a second parking fee.

    You can make the advanced dining reservations that you want, and try to plan your park visits around the dining reservations, but it really isn't that inconvenient to move from a theme park to a resort or to another park.  I think  you'll be fine wherever you decide to eat.  What I would do, however, is if you plan to do one park then head to another for your lunch or dinner, consider staying at the second park for the afternoon.  That saves you some travel time!

    I hope you have a great vacation!
