    If AK closes at 5 pm, what time do the QS restaurants close? Can I buy dinner at Flame Tree at 5 pm and eat it there before exiting or will it have stopped serving by then or will we be required to leave before eating?

    While traveling on the Kilimanjaro Safari, conquering Expedition Everest, and watching Festival of the Lion King you are going to build up an quite an appetite for dinner.

    While some quick service restaurants in Disney's Animal Kingdom stay open until closing, the Flame Tree Barbecue typically closes one hour before the park. If you want to eat here consider trying out the lunch offerings or grab an early dinner. Counter service spots that often stay open until closing include Pizzafari and Restaurantosaurus. No one will push you out even if you are the last person to order that day.

    My family enjoys having a relaxing, sit down meal at the end of a tiring park day. Consider making reservations at a table service restaurant for closing time. The Rainforest Cafe is a fun choice located at the park's exit. Call (407) 939-3463 or click on Dining Reservations to book your party at any table service restaurant.

    Enjoy your adventures in Disney's Animal Kingdom!
