    I will be attending Moonlight Magic at Animal Kingdom! What restaurants will be open after 6PM?

    Jambo, Janet!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney!  Janet, I bet you just can't wait to be king during the Moonlight Magic event at Disney's Animal Kingdom. As you know, Janet, this benefit is exclusive for Disney Vacation Club Members, and it is one that makes Members roar with excitement!

    Janet, I called Member Services today and spoke with my friend and fellow panelist Tiffany who has been to quite a few Moonlight Magic events.  Both confirmed that typically, you won't know which restaurants are open until you arrive and receive the program of events for the evening.

    Now, the good news is, Janet, you won't have to hunt far for some grub. Moonlight Magic events come with complimentary delights and treats during the event. You will also receive certificates to claim complimentary snacks and drinks at select dining locations.

    But one tip I learned is you should cash those in on the early side as sometimes fan favorites run out and lines get longer as the evening progresses.  Everyone in the kingdom growls in hunger as the evening goes on so you don't want to miss out if you get to the watering hole too late. Plus, you'll want to have extra time to take advantage of those shorter wait times for attractions and character sightings.  

    I hope this helps you, Janet. I hope you enjoy the Moonlight Magic event. If you have any further questions, stop back and see me. All you've got to do is look left. Then you've got to look right. I'll be right here, standing in the spotlight!  

    Have a roaring time!
