While, in theory, having park hours released 6 months in advance really helps with vacation planning, I'm not sure how much help it is in reality. I've seen first hand on numerous occasions where park hours and other items (like Spectro or fireworks) were posted several months in advance only to be changed closer to the actual date. I'm the one who develops the itinerary for my friends' annual vacation so they can get the most out of their week here. I now know to develop the tentative plan and check the WDW calendar a couple of weeks prior to vacation in case they have changed anything. They always vacation in mid December or early January so we rarely make ADRs much in advance because at that time of year it's pretty easy to get reservation the day before as long as exact reservation time isn't critical.
