    If Animal Kingdom closes at 5pm, does that mean the Flame Tree BBQ would also close at 5pm, or could I plan on eating there at 5pm upon park closing time? We have Tusker House booked for lunch, but I'm reading such great things about Flame Tree as well.

    Hi Kristie,

    Flame Tree BBQ is my favorite quick service restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  I do hope you get to dine at this restaurant during your stay. 

    If the theme park is scheduled to close at 5 pm, you should expect that Flame Tree BBQ will close at that time (if not earlier) as well.  Be sure to look at your Times Guide as you enter the park for the day.  If a restaurant does not share the same hours of operation as the theme park, that will be noted on the Times Guide.  I'm hoping you have an early lunch planned at Tusker House so that you will be hungry enough by 4:30 pm or so to enjoy the delectable offerings at Flame Tree BBQ. 

    Bon appetit!
