    Hi! When will the WDW theme park opening hours be posted for the first week in November 2020? I would like to make my table service Dining Reservations (the window for doing this opened on 04 May), but I need to know the park hours first. Thanks!

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Anthony! Thinking about where I'm going to eat is one of my favorite things to do when I'm planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I have a trip coming up right around the same time as you and my friends and I had a great time recently planning a large brunch where we can all catch up over mimosas and Mickey waffles. We were all just recently saying that planning our meals really made it feel like our trip was just around the corner!

    Theme Park hours are an important part of planning out your vacation days so I understand that you're hesitant to get your dining plans going when the calendar hasn't updated yet. I can see Theme Park hours all the way through until the end of October so it shouldn't be too much longer until the calendar shows the hours for the week of your trip. I would keep checking back over the next few days and weeks because I think there should be some updates pretty soon. Remember that these Theme Park hours are always subject to change so remember to keep an eye on the My Disney Experience app as your vacation gets closer. 

    In the meantime, I think you should go ahead and make those dining reservations at the restaurants you're looking forward to trying! If there's a popular restaurant that's really important to you, like Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park or California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you can always plan your day around where you want to eat instead of planning where you're eating around where you're going to be that day. Remember that your dining plans are flexible so if you do end up wanting to change them when the Theme Park hours are released, you can do that through the My Disney Experience app all the way up until the day before you dine!

    I hope this answers your question, Anthony, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
