    Hi! I have a dinner reservation for Dec. 24 at 10:35 PM for Be Our Guest. The current park hours show Magic Kingdom closing at 10 PM on Dec. 24. What will happen to us? Did I make a reservation for nothing? Thanks!

    Hi France,

    How wonderful that you'll be celebrating the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. It is my family's favorite time of the year to visit. A few years ago, we celebrated Christmas Eve at Be Our Guest Restaurant, and it was a wonderful experience.

    Currently the hours displayed on the Walt Disney World Resort Calendars are the regular operating hours. These will eventually be updated, more than likely by the end of the summer. I've talked to Guest Services and the Dining Reservations team, and the hours for Be Our Guest Restaurant have already been updated, so you do not need to worry about it. Magic Kingdom hours have not been finalized yet, but more than likely they will be extended past the regular closing hours.

    I remember during our trip to the Resort last year, we had to adjust our plans a little bit to take advantage of evening Extra Magic Hours, including staying at Magic Kingdom past 2:00 a.m. It is indeed one of the best benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel. One tip: use the My Disney Experience mobile app to check availability at your favorite restaurant. Many Guests change their plans at the last minute so if it's too late for you, you may be able to find a better time.

    See you real soon!
