Waiting for August Hours - All hours are up!!

Just less than 10 days until the hours *should* be posted! Then the ADR frenzy can begin!!

Our trip isn't until the end of the month, so it looks like we'll have a couple of weeks to tweak our schedule before calling in for our ADRs on Memorial Day.

OUR TRIPS ARE GETTING CLOSER!!! LET'S CELEBRATE!!!

Here are links to the calendar pages on the Disney website:

Magic Kingdom Park Hours

Epcot Park Hours

Animal Kingdom Park Hours

Disney Hollywood Studios Park Hours

We are going in Aug as well, with my ADR date being May 18.

I have a question about this....When the park hours are posted, will it include what nights the Fantasmic show/package is available? I want to book that but am not sure what to do if I have no idea whether it is on or not.

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne

I'm patiently waiting too, like you our trip isn't until later in the month so at least I should have a few days to decide on a schedule before having to phone to get the ADR's.

The times for all the shows and parades should also be posted, but of course, it can change at any time.

I'm waiting...and not so patiently, I might add! At least it's gone by pretty fast. I remember when I thought May would NEVER get here. I only plan on making one ADR (for Whispering Canyon) so I'm not too worried. Although, I've never been during free dining so maybe I should be worried?

YAY!! I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!

The should be posted on or about May 1st.

I remember last year when we went 10/28-11/03...what a nightmare waiting for November hours!! I think they were about 2-3 weeks late posting them. I was so upset that I didn't have the fireworks and show schedules for the 3 days we were there that month - I know I missed out on some great ADR times. That's why I was happy to see that it worked out for us to go at the end of the month this time, and not overlap into Sept at all.

This is exactly what is happening to us this year. Our trip is Aug 29 - Sept 5. This is the 1st time using DDP too! Do I book for the Sept days without knowing the hours?!!? So stressful

8/29-9/6 here... can't wait.. I know from last year if they follow suit.
after labor day the parks well close on the earlier side. I know MNSSHP is on that 1st Friday in Sept and we are going to that so dinner will be early.

I am wondering if on 5/29 can I only make ADR for 8/29 that day or will they allow me to do my whole trip - I hate the thought of calling each morning for a week stright just to do 1 day at a time - but I will..
