    When is Dinoland USA closing? We are going in August and my son loves dinosaurs.

    Hi Joseph!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I'm glad you stopped by with a DINO-mite question!  DinoLand U.S.A. has certainly been a favorite of our family over the years.  While I'm always excited to hear about new attractions and theming coming to the parks, it is also sometimes hard to say goodbye to those that we have loved!  

    Joseph, we first heard about a reimagining of DinoLand U.S.A. at the 2023 D23 Expo, but firm dates for the closures of current attractions have not been shared.  I was just at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in May and was able to travel back in time on DINOSAUR to find the elusive Iguanadon and saw Donald greeting guests as part of Donald's Dino-Bash!  My kids love exploring The Boneyard whenever they visit too - it's the perfect place to run around and burn off some energy!  While characters and attractions are always subject to change without notice, I'm hopeful that you'll be able to explore everything your family wants to see when you visit later this summer!

    We like to time our visit to DinoLand around a meal and usually take advantage of Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering from one of our favorites, Flame Tree Barbecue, when leaving that area of the park.  For the ultimate indulgence, I recommend the Ribs, Chicken, and Pulled Pork Sampler!  I also love that this spot has ample seating and a good deal of shade on those hot summer days.  If you get to the pick-up windows a little before your food is ready, you may even be able to catch some live music on the stage across from this Quick-Service location.

    Joseph, I hope your visit to Animal Kingdom is packed with prehistoric fun!  If you have any other planning questions, please stop by to see me and my pals here at planDisney again!

    See ya real soon!
