I don't think it's for a while prob around the 180 day mark. But as you know we are in the same boat. I really need the park hours too

King Fergus I use a website called easywdw and they usually have them on as soon as they are released, I would imagine they bring out a rough copy out within the next few weeks (Septembers was released about mid February), I'm waiting of this for the end of our trip so if I find it I will let you know asap but keep an eye on that website they are usually really good!

What I've done in my plans for September is roughly gone off 2013 schedule as I don't think they expect much change, they mentioned for September that they expect the final copy to be released in may but I'm airing on the side of caution and going with 2013 with input from the standard 2014 plans that are out

Hope that helps!

September wasn't posted until the last couple days of February. I know because I was checking daily since my ADR window opened March 3rd and I was (im)patiently waiting for the hours to get posted! eek

Should be the middle of March if history is anything to go on. I keep checking every day now though just in case they are early this year! Smile

MK usually closes at 7 in October and opens at 8 or 9. Studios usually opens around 8 or 9 as well then closes around 7. DAK opens at 8 or 9 then closes around 5 or 6 and Epcot normally stays around 9-9 for most of the year.

I've checked out hours in October for last year..MK will close early for MNSSHP but I've seen it was open until midnight on not so scary nights..

Mandy, I was out last October and MK only closed at 7 for MNSSHP. On the 19th it was definitely open gone midnight as I spent the first few minutes of my 50th birthday having a private audience with MM making him laugh. KF I was in a similar situation last year and found that mostly the proposed and actual times didn't vary much. I think AK closed earlier than proposed.

Cheers Sally-Ann...I just want to be sure of the hours as my DS celebrates his 17th birthday on our last night and our ADR he has picked is Jiko...

I too use the posted month to set up the ADRs and choose the days where we will be focused on. We are opting NOT to do the hopper because DH thinks we waste too much time going between parks (can't really argue) so when we leave earlier we opt for out of park eating.

The only difference for us is that I stumbled on this wonderful TA who is willing to try moving and fussing until we get the dates and then the places we want. She is in the South and we are not, but she and I talk often while she is booking online so we get it right.

I laugh because my DH is sure this is all so easy and it's so smooth when we take off for the trip, but it takes months of planning (and shopping and packing) so that it is smooth and fun. DSs also didn't realize the time that went into the planning, but they sure loved the trip!

Our newbie friends that are going this time just handed it over to us and said to "make it work" because they have other priorities before that. Of course, nobody said the planning isn't part of the fun! I know what I am planning for and I am already excited and we are 182 days out (2 days before she books those ADRs!!!!)

Yeah that's usually the case I'm not sure about missing the weekend dates we have done Sundays in september that past 2 years and haven't really noticed it being mega busy, if you keep an eye on easywdw he usually does a crowd calendar which is really good and that might help you decide what dates are best for you to go????

Yea I know that 7 is only for MNSSHP. I think I meant to include that but didn't think about it. I've been very tired lately.

Those hours are not out yet from Disney. Anything you see on any other site is just speculated, not that it won't be correct, but Disney did not put out those hours yet for Oct. Disney only has hours out to Sept 24 right now.

Yeh I understand Mr Hub..I'am just preparing..LOL...I don't want to snag a ADR night during MNSSHP, so I've got 6 potentially nights to play with..I don't want to book that event until I arrive at my resort..Talk about mission to Disney..I feel like a astronaut working out what planet is going to be the best to land on during my 13 day trip.. sarcastic
