They haven't released the day to day schedule, etc,yet. Just what Denise posted below, its driving me crazy too, I need to know i case there is something i want to book, i may need to move something around. And my 60 day window is tomorrow so I'd like to get the Epcot stuff taken care of.
It does seem like its being released later, which is odd since its starting sooner this year.
