    I was wondering how far in advance Disney will post extra-magic hours for parks? We want to make a couple of dining reservations, but wanted to maximize our park time and only make reservations at parks on days that will have extra magic hours. Thanks!!

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, Jena!  

    Although subject to change, Extra Magic Hours are typically set about 6 months in advance.  Typically those Extra Magic Hours will be set so that you can make your Advance Dining Reservations with that information in hand.  

    Keep your eye on the Park Hours at or slightly before your 6 month mark!

    I wish you a MAGICAL vacation!
