    We have dinner reservations May 17th @ 5:30 pm at Yak & Yeti & AK closes at 6:00 that evening. How long will the buses run after park closing so we can get back to our hotel? Will we have to rush through our dinner? Thx moms and dads, always so h

    Hi Roxanne,

    There's no need to rush through your tasty dinner at the Yak & Yeti.  Disney knows that guests will continue to need transportation back to their resorts for quite awhile after the park closes, particularly when guests are still dining at various restaurants throughout the park.  If Disney's Animal Kingdom closes at 6 pm, complimentary bus transportation back to your Disney resort will run for an additional hour.  That gives you nearly 90 minutes to enjoy your dinner.  I would recommend that you consider showing up 15-20 minutes early for your reservation to see if they might give you an earlier table.  Be sure to mention to your server that you hope to catch a Disney bus by 7 pm and I'm sure he or she will be happy to see that your meals are served promptly.

    Wishing you and your family a magical vacation next month!
