I spent a lot of time reading and then practicing using the online dining system for the adrs.

at 4:00 this morning, i was up and ready to book at 5:00 my cst.


when the time came, i signed in and tried to book.
the system failed me.
i tried a few times but no go.


i ended up calling at 6 cst to make the adr's over the phone.
just got off at 6:50 and was fortunate to get adr's for what i needed.


again, another big thank you to the poster that gave us a link.
you know, the super stay here!

it made yesterday a lot easy to rework my park schedule for my trip.

Did anyone else notice that there are NO extra magic hours listed on October 2? It would seem like it should be Animal Kingdom with evening EMH, but that isn't listed. Hmmmm...........

Anyone know why there are no hours for October for World Showcase posted? I think it usually opens 2h later, right? Anyone know how when it closes in relation to FW?

Usually, World Showcase opens at 11 and closes at 9. Unless there are EMH that day. It has been closing at 8 on Fridays, but from the TA hours posted for Oct, it seems like it will be open until 9 every day for the month of October.

Epcot Evening EMH ???

When Epcot has it's evening EMH, what time does Epcot really close? For example, Sept. 23, does it close at 10pm or 12am?

It is open until 12am, but only the big stuff is open. The countries stay open for a little while, but they close them off after norway by some point. You can still walk out throuh canada and england though. The rides in Mexico & Norway are usually still open, and then SE, MS, Test Track, Sorin', Living with the Land, and the Living Seas are usually all still open. That is at least how it was when I was there!!

I was wondering why park hours seemed to change quite frequently so I asked a CM in guest services and was told it had a lot to do with the resorts and how full they are.

We heard from a CM that it cost something like $80K to put Fantasmic! on every night. Paying all those face and fur characters, along with technicians to run the show, can get pretty expensive. That's part of why they cut back the Fantasmic! shows.

Haven't looked to see how closely they match the TA released times

Hey - I just realised that this is my 100th post!! - Do I get a free FastPass or something?
I was going to do the comparison to see if the park hours matched the TA site, but when i click on the link above, Disney says there is a system error.

Does anyone have any idea where to find approximate hours for this past January? I'm hoping to get even a little bit of an idea for what the hours might possibly be. I know this next Jan could be different, and the economy is not the best, but it wasn't good this past January either so maybe they will be similiar. But, even with that I have no idea what those hours were like. Anyone have any help here? I would imagine Mk and such close earlier than say in Nov being that it's value time when we are going(Jan 2 - 10). I don't care most nights how late things go, except for MK, my favorite park so I hope that has some hours later than say 7 pm or something. We went back in Jan '05 but I can't remember anything about the hours then and didn't save that info, besides which with the economy being so much worse now, hours will likely be somewhat cut. Thanks to anyone with thoughts on this!

I'm a bit confused with the EMH hours in orange for morning EMH and green for evening EMH. So, for example, on the first line, for MK, on Jan 1,2,3, MK opens one hour early three days in a row, right? Now if they are open 9:00 am - 12:00 am, does that mean Mk opens one hour prior to that at 8:00 a.m.? (Not that we'd go for morning emh, we are definitely night people and work the late park hours instead, lol!). And, then at MK on Jan 4, open 9:00 - 9:00, they are then closed to public at 9 pm and continue to be open for evening EMH 9:00 pm - 12:00 am? I just want to make sure I'm reading it right, lol! Thanks again for being a very helpful disser! Btw, I just saw you are going to wdw in Jan too, overlapping our trip, cool!

Also, anyone know how long those beautiful castle icicle lights stay up? Do they take them down when they take down decorations, or do they display longer? I will be so sad if they are not up for our visit, that's one of my most favorite parts!!
