    If Animal Kingdom closes at 5:00 pm, what time will they stop letting people get in line for attractions? Especially if they are for more popular attractions like the Safari Ride?

    Hi Whitney!

    Guests can get in line for an attraction right up to park closing.  That's true for the other theme parks as well, unless it is posted that the attraction closes early.  By the way, it's been my experience that the "estimated wait" that is posted is generally longer near park closing than it actually is.  However, sometimes it's actually longer!  Once we got in line for Space Mountain a few minutes before midnight, when the Magic Kingdom was closing at  midnight, with an estimated wait of 15 minutes, but the actual wait was over an hour!

    Have a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
