Yes, they do only release the park hours one month at a time. They will be changing the system as of October 27th 2009 where you can find the park hours 180 days in advance (6 months) and the same goes for ADR's. But for right now, you can only make ADR's 90 days in advance from your trip. Same goes with the park hours.

Smile There has been a change for those visiting after December 2009

I have confirmed with a Dining Reservation cast member that the ADR's (and the calendar with hours) are returning to 180 days in advance beginning in late October (27th or 29th...sorry that I cannot remember exactly).

We are planning a family reunion in November, so I wanted to make sure that we would not be affected by the change (and we won't be).

Good luck!

So should I assume that Feb 2010 hours will be posted on 10/27? It is going to be hard to make my ADR's at 6am on 10/27 without knowing at least a day in advance what the hours are going to be!

That stinks . I can make my adr on the 4th of sept, but hours have been posting on the 5th. I hope the CM will have the hours on the 4th. My sister and I are going in Dec and we have upgraded to deluxe dining, so we have a lot of choices of restaurants. We have made out our days and can easily switch the whole day according to extra magic hours. I know when MK will not have extra night hours by when they have mvmcp. I think we are pretty close on when the parks will have extra hours..We'll see in sept! We are spending so much time on planning...we need a vacation! We've looked at so much food porn that we feel like we eaten the meal already....Why does Disney make us go crazy?

Yep! Sure did! Did that our first trip in 2002. Entire planning consisted of skimming the Unofficial Guide book on the three hour plane ride. Got there and found out the travel agent had not given us the Ultimate Park Hopper tickets we asked for, but plain Park Hoppers, so no water parks for us. Didn't know enough to know we could add that option on, so had to tell the kids sorry, wrong tickets, no water parks for you. Didn't ride as much as we could because we didn't figure out what fast pass was and how to use it until the last day, which was day 4, because we were also under the impression we could "do it all" in four days, after all, it's just a theme park! Couldn't always eat where we wanted, but then we hadn't done our homework so we didn't know what restaurants were available anyway. We just tried to get in wherever we were walking by. Didn't know what Priority Seating was (precursor to the ADRs) so didn't have any.

Eleven trips later I plan like mad and we have much better trips for it. Feel much more chilled when we have at least a rudimentary plan...what parks what days and at least a couple ADRs for favorite restaurants.

I know exactly how you guys feel! We finally have every detail planned about our upcoming trip for Sept. 28-Oct. 9. It definitely pays off to plan well in advance, because now I have Le Cellier, Chef Mickey's, Princess Breakfast, and Spirit of Aloha Show, all of which I had to work my buns off to finally get!! We are also going back in Decemberfor a week but with quick service dining this time. I'm trying to figure if it's worth the extra $160 to upgrade for regular dining, knowing that I'll be scrambling like mad when those hours are posted for December! But I guess planning is half the fun, I know I sure have had a ball doing it all! Also, I was able to get an extra day in there for free by changing from one pin code to another one when the new free dining plan came out for Sept. through Dec. So if we plan well, then things are so much smoother when we finally get to The Happiest Place on Earth!

How the heck are you supposed to plan your ADRs and call at 7AM on sept 1st for my nov 30-dec 6 trip?

I can't know when the park hours are till the day I need to call? Are there generalizations I can assume?

I want to plan a rough itinerary this weekend and get up early the first with choices all ready...but can't choose till I call?

OK there has to be some strategy you guys can recommend.

Also, what's this PIN I hear of? Do I need it for online or phone reservations?

I'm with you - I'm going 11/30-12/7. All we can do is cross our fingers and then make adjustments after the hours come out, if necessary.

I already planned my rough itinerary based upon which days they had EMH last year - I know that it can change, but at least it's a starting place. I also took into account the list of "which parks which days" list I got from touringplans.com (put in the www first). That helped too. I'm just going to go ahead and make my ADR's on Tuesday and then when the hours come out I'll change stuff if I need to.

As for PIN codes, they are offers from Disney that come either via snail mail or email. You don't need one to make your ADR's.

It'll be 6 months before, which is March! They allow you to make ADR's so many days prior to your trip. At the current time it is 90 days so each month the hours come out for three months from then. But, starting Oct 27th they will go back to the 180 days schedule again(they tried switching to the 90 days sometime this year but are scrapping that and returning to the 180 days). I think that will be good so we can get the park hours 6 month before our trips to help in planning, the 3 months just isn't enough time for some people.
