  1. Disney needs to stop playing games with park hours. They keep making changes to the park hours every few weeks. I would like to see park hours set through the end of 2022, and include extended hours, early entry hours, and special event hours and dates. Planning a trip to WDW is currently a disaster in trying to schedule things.
