    When will Disney release park hours for May 2018? We are approaching our 180 day mark in 10 days and Disney is only up to May 3rd for its park hours. I would like a few days to plan what our family will be doing and where to eat as well.

    Hi, Jeffrey!

    Generally, park hours for Walt Disney World are posted 6 months in advance. Keep checking the park calendar for dates/hours to be updated. Hours are subject to change, so keep an eye on your travel dates for any changes. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will also want to make note of any Extra Magic Hours. More time for fun in the parks!

    You will be able to book your dining reservations at 180 days out. You can make these reservations either online or by calling (407)WDW-DINE. Other important dates to remember if staying on property:
    -FastPass+ selection: 60 days out (30 days out for non-resort guests)
    -Online check-in: 60 days out
    -Final payment (if you booked a Magic Your Way package): 45 days out. (If you booked a "room only" reservation then the balance will be due at check-in.)
    -Customize MagicBands: 30 days out

    Mark your calendar for all these important dates. Getting all the details done ahead of time will have your vacation all set and ready to go. Have fun planning your magical holiday to Walt Disney World!
