[QUOTE=b1wife;936507]I just have to vent my frustration…
I am a MAJOR planner when it comes to our WDW trips and it is driving me crazy that they aren’t posting the park hours until 3 months ahead of time, plus I can’t make ADRs until 90 days out.
For our June trip, I find out the park hours on March 1 (if they’re posted on time) and I have to call March 3 for ADRs. We have a group of 9 going this time, there is no way I can not make ADRs. Those dates are so close together, it’s making me stress out way too much! :eek:
Like you, I have a June trip booked and I have to make my ADRs on March 2 with the calendars hopefully being up on March 1 (no guarantee they’ll get them all up on time). Here’s what I’m doing. Since I arrive May 31, my dining for that night is already decided (time and location) because I have confirmed MK hours for that day as being 9am - 9pm with EMH until midnight (thank you disneyworld.ca since the US site doesn’t show hours for May 31). For the rest of the week I’m there, I’m going on the following basis for planning my dinner ADRs. MK 9am - 7pm, Epcot 9am - 9pm, DHS 9am - 7pm and AK 9am - 5pm. These are sort of “standard” off peak park hours. I would rather plan with the idea that the parks are not open late and then be pleasantly surprised when I find out park hours have been extended.
