    Hello there! If my dining reservation will keep me past park closing, will the buses be running? One person told me they run for an hour after closing and another told me they will run until the park is empty I don’t want to be stranded!

    Greetings George,

    Welcome to planDisney! We always happy to help guests like you with your planning questions, especially when they involve Disney dining. We certainly want to be sure that you relax and enjoy your meal inside the Walt Disney World theme parks without stressing about how to get back to your resort.

    Good news for you: The buses that carry guests back to the Disney resorts typically run for at least an hour after the park closes and the schedule is extended longer if there are still guests lingering over their dinners or in the shops. On a number of occasions, I've been among the last guests out of a park and have had no difficulty finding a ride "home." 

    I'm not sure when you plan your visit, George, but please be aware that previously announced park hours for dates after September 8, 2020 have been adjusted recently. If the new hours affect you and your dining reservations, you will be contacted by Guest Services to help you make adjustments.

    I hope that answers your question and eases any concerns you have about transportation. Please let us know if you have other questions or if you want suggestions for our favorite places to enjoy a meal in the magic of Walt Disney World. Enjoy!
