Welcome!! I see you are new to disboards. Have you been to WDW before? As you should know, you need to book dining ressies and your hotel in advance so you can make sure you get what you want! No point in spending 4K on a trip that is not what you really want. Have fun NOT planning your trip!

From experience, I will tell you what will happen when you get there. You will eat at counter service restaurants for a few days and then decide that you'd like to enjoy a character breakfast or a good steak dinner. So you get on the reservation line and they tell you that they have 7:15am for breakfast on Sunday or 2pm for that steak on the Tuesday that you're at Animal Kingdom.

Honestly, if the meals thing isn't an issue for you, then you'll be fine. There are places that you can line up and wait for which still have good food.

My trip dates are the same and since we are not park hopping we want to make ressies according to park hours and EMH's. Answering an earlier poster, the only plans we make are for ressies....the rest of the time we just float along and enjoy the magic!

I'm not going in Nov this year, though we did the last three years. Going in jan instead. But, I am wondering for those who have this year and last year's November hours , how do they compare? Are they very similiar, or, are they reduced a lot this year?

We go in November most years and I have found that the park hours are pretty much the same from year to year with various changes for Thanksgiving. What I have found is the EMH days are never the same from year to year. We usually check out on a Saturday so I hate it when my favorite park - Epcot - has extra evening hours on a Friday. Epcot is the highlight of my trip and I don't want to have to wait all week to do it. Hmmmm, might just have to go twice!

Thats fine if your going to the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone or Six Flags...not Disney...if you want a character meal or a real nice sit down meal you want to get a ressie and you want it to coincide with your planning..if your gonna be at AK on Thursday and the only character meal is Thursday at Crystal Palace...Kinda puts a kink in things...

Its hard to go on the fly at Disney...

I totally agree! if you want to make the mostout of your time while u r at WDW, you have to plan a little bit ahead! I feel better knowing that I have planned some stuff and have an outline of what we will do, or can do, while we are vacationing! I think it is really important regarding the dining...if you buy the dining plan, you have to make the ADRs or u will not get to eat at the restaurants or with characters that you want!

They changed a little. I'd practically memorized the Nov 2008 times sweating out the release of Nov 09. It appears some places are closing an hour earlier than last year...maybe that means the resorts aren't as full as the hoped and we'll have less crowds. Wishful thinking! Probably just Disney's way of cutting back and saving some money.

Still, I find it's all in the planning. Crowds are a pain, but if you figure out the system and following a touring plan, you can doing almost everything!

There are people who "chill a bit" and don't blame so much. I love them. It makes life much easier for the rest of us!

I find that those other folks who "chilled" are the ones who complain the most about how crowded Disney was, how expensive everything was, and how overrated it all was.

Gee, I wonder why that is their experience?

Do they release hours one month at a time? I'm glad Nov is posted, but we're going Nov. 28-Dec. 5 and I'm really nervous about ADRs since this is my first time making them. I'm just wondering if I'll have to wait until September to figure things out.
