    Booked trip for January 2020 park hours no one knows when they will be posted how can I make meal reservations if I don't know what park we are going to

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa! It really sounds like we have a lot in common because I am always thinking about what I'm going to do on my next Walt Disney World Vacation, and it looks like you are too. I have a few trips booked around the end of this year and I'm already lining up where I want to eat and what I want to do!

    In the words of a wise Jedi Master, "Impossible to see, the future is." At the moment we don't know what the theme park hours will be in January of next year, but when it comes time to book your advanced dining reservations, everything might be a little bit more clear. Right now, I can see hours on the calendar all the way through the end of October, which is about six months away, so the hours for your trip should be available around six months before you arrive. 

    When it comes to making plans for your vacation before theme park hours are available, my best advice is to set your top priorities and plan from there, but leave room for some flexibility. If breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant is a must-do for your vacation, check out what reservation times are available during your trip and plan your Magic Kingdom Park day around that! If you want to change your plans when the theme park hours are released, the great news is that dining reservations are super flexible and you can modify them in the days and weeks before you arrive using the My Disney Experience app. Keep in mind that theme park hours are subject to change at any time, so keep checking the calendar as your trip gets closer!

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