    We've booked our first trip to Disney World on 12/2 for 8 days and I learned that we can make dining reservations 90 days prior to arrival and also found out that the park hours for Dec. won't come out 'til Sep. - so how do I make dining reservation?Thanks

    Hi Connie,

    Dining reservations for December 2nd can be made either online or by calling 407-939-3463 from September 3rd. Park hours for December will be released at the beginning of September so they should be out before you need to book. If not the park hours do stay quite consistent, for example extra magic hours at Magic Kingdom are normally scheduled for Thursday mornings and Sunday or Monday evenings. What I suggest you do is plan where you think you'll want to dine each day using the "typical" hours, make those reservations and then you can always cancel and change them if required later.

    One thing to note is that Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is scheduled for December 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 during your trip, so the park will close to non-party guests at 7pm.

    Fingers crossed the hours come out before the 3rd,
