That is very good advance notification for these Moonlight events. We will actually be at WDW for the Moonlight Magic at Epcot, December 4 & 11. Our AP expires December 7, so it is sounding like it will be a perfect time to check out this offer. The only problem I see that Epcot is our least favorite park. And would they keep open the WS for this event or would only half of the park, Future World (or less if not all attractions are open) be available? I guess we will find out the details later.

This is actually great for a lot of people, since they can now plan trips around these perks, which is the biggest issue I've had with DVC events like these!

Sadly, our normal WDW trip over our anniversary weekend (9/10) isn't happening this year so we can go earlier and do the half-marathon in April. So I'm going to miss out anyway, unless I can convince the wife to cut the April trip short. We actually don't have our return airfare booked yet, so there's options.

We were very lucky last year to attend the bonus nights at both Animal Kingdom & California Adventure.
Great fun!
We just missed that luck this year.
Unfortunately we're arriving at WDW the day after the 2nd Animal Kingdom event on 9/13.
Oh well.....maybe next time.
But I'm very hopeful we'll be able to attend the Disneyland event in November seeing as we only live 95 miles away.
And I'm especially happy they're giving us such a long lead time.
Makes planning easier.

With 56 days to go until our next trip (still in our 2016 UY), we just booked our 2017 trip for 5-14 Dec 17. We're registered for the DVC after-hours event, in the MK, for 3 Mar as well as paying for another one on 9 Mar (DW's birthday!). Our AP normally expires 2 Dec but we took advantage of the 13 month renewal so our APs are good for both trips. We will plan to attend this event on 11 Dec and eagerly await the details.
