    Hello! My family and I are visiting the WDW in 2025. With early and evening hours I’ve seen we will be gone or coming back before/after dining at our resort opens or close. Is there any other available dining open between 11pm-6:30am? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Betty! I’m so glad that you’ve got big plans for 2025! I’m just as glad to hear that you plan on taking advantage of the great perks available for Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels! The Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours benefits are two of my favorite perks!

    Don’t necessarily plan on your hotel quick-service dining locations to be closed when you’re trying to take advantage of park hour perks! For example, my favorite quick-service dining location is Gasparilla Island Grill at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The hours that are currently listed for this Disney Dining location are 6:00 AM to 12:00 AM. The 6:00 AM opening time is perfect for those looking to take advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry benefit. You should be able to grab breakfast and still get to the park before opening time! Please note that hours are subject to change and can vary by dining location. You can check the operating hours for Disney Dining locations on the Walt Disney World Resort website. When you arrive at the site, simply enter the name of the dining location in the search bar. When the page appears for that location, you can check the hours by date by selecting your preferred date using the calendar icon. You can also check hours on the My Disney Experience app!

    Betty, some quick-service dining locations remain open late. However, they will likely be closed if you remain in parks for the full Extended Evening Hours benefit. I always stay in the parks for the full benefit. However, my late-night vacation appetite is fierce! I usually plan on getting something to eat in the parks later in the night before returning to my resort hotel. The parks usually have a few quick-service dining locations and snack stands open late. I also keep a few snacks and drinks in our in-room refrigerator for when we return to the room after a late night in the parks. 

    I hope this information is helpful with your planning! Feel free to come back to planDisney with more questions!

    Dreams do come true!
