    Character dinner reservation for 7:40pm at hollywood studios. Park closes at 7pm. How do we get back to the resort if bus transportation stops an hour after the park closes?

    Heigh-Ho Lizzete,

    One of my favorite things to do is schedule a dining reservation, before or after park hours, for any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. The photo-ops, during these times, are priceless. One of my favorite pictures is of my daughter, who at the time was 3-years old, running towards Cinderella Castle in her Cinderella dress and crown, and not a soul was around. It will forever be one of the Most Magical Moments I will Forever Remember, she is now 18-years old. 

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios, at nighttime, is an incredible display of beautifully lit attractions, shops and window displays. And after, enjoying your entertaining and deliciously delectable dinner, at Hollywood & Vine, I highly suggest leisurely strolling as you exit the park. Typically, Disney Transportation stops running an hour after park hours. However, they do take into consideration those Guests with after-hour reservations. Buses may not be running as often, so the wait can be a little longer between pick-ups. Speak to a Cast Member at Bus Transportation for further details, when you arrive and when your depart. As a side note, on these occasions, I prefer to budget for a taxi or ride-share. These are readily and easily accessible. 

    I am excited your Jolly Holiday is but a few dreams away and may your stay be filled with many magical and memorable moments.
