Also, now we would be losing a whole hour of park time with low crowds.
Be there early, no later than 7:30 or 7:40 and you should still get what you want.....a few minutes on an empty Main Street. We have the same problem every December with hours changes. Once we let the early ADR go. Another time we kept it (our BBB reservation). They let us in ahead of the crowd around 7:50 and we got some photos that were worth their weight in gold. Don't despair, but don't be late either or you WILL be going in with the masses.

Yes, these are accurate. Disney updates these first as these files are easier to update then the Disney website. The Disney website usually follows behind though by about 2 weeks...then you will see the update there also.

Thanks, that's we plan to do now.

So with the updated hours I see they added another fantasmic show.

We have the package booked.

So do we just pick which time we want or are we assigned a time?

Read this on another site:

http://www.wdwmagic.com/attractions/...w-schedule.htm

Looks like bad news for late October-early November folks. Little chance of soft openings of the FLE between 10/20 and 11/5 unless you are a CM, D23 member, AP holder, or DVC owner. We are not counting on seeing soft openings during our 11/1-11/6 trip, but if we happen to luck out and get to see the new area, I will consider it an extra special bit of Disney magic.

I am excited about extended hours during November, though...

I wonder why they added random 8am park openings for MK. I could see if it was Thanksgiving week, but they seem kind of randomly added.

So excited it is getting closer! Yesterday I bought some really cute Disney Christmas window clings at Hobby Lobby. Still trying my hardest not to tell the kids we are going...it is so hard.

So does this mean? Will regular people like us who are not DVC, AP, etc, be able to go in to the areas in early November?

That would be so cool. Anyone know with the soft opening, if it is everyone, will Be Our Guest be opening more reservations earlier?

According to all the different dates that are exclusvely for different groups (AP, DVC, CMs, D23), looks like very slim chance any "regular" folks will get in on the dates between 10/20 and 11/5.

Woohoo! We got our Mickey Mail today!

Haven't had a chance to look at it because the kids are up, but we'll take a look through it tonight since they are heading off to a friend's house for the night.

With the new hours we'll also look at our schedule. I'm thinking we won't make any real changes since our park days are kind of tied to our ADRs. The only thing I might want to change would be our F! reservation. Currently we're scheduled for dinner at 3:45pm. With the second F! show we could do a more reasonable dinner time, although as of right now it's not looking like there are open times. I'll give a call in on Monday and see.

How does that calendar work? are the hours posted per park the full hours INCLUDING Extra magic? or are the extra magic hows in addition? /like on Nov 10, it says that magic kingdom is open 8am -12 am with extra magic hours in the PM and wishes at 10...does this mean the park is open til 3 am? I'm so confused lol

That's a bummer! I was really forward to seeing it. I guess will ha e to wait for the next time we are able to go.

If I understand it correctly the evening hours are 3 hours extra and the morning hours are 1 hour early. This does mean that MK will be open until 3am on some nights. I'm hoping that means the next morning will be lighter crowds, as we have our first MK day on a day after 3am EMH.
