    Hi! We are going to EPCOT on August 15th. If we make a reservation at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at 8:10 and the park closes at 9PM will we be rushed to finish our dinner? Thank you.

    Hi Robert!  Thanks for asking your question at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I don't think you will have any problems with an 8:10 p.m. reservation for Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Personally, I have never felt rushed through any dinner at Walt Disney World, regardless of what time the park closes.  You will be able to enjoy your dinner, and have plenty of time to exit the park.  The park closes at 9 p.m. on the day you will be there, and IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will begin at that time.  It runs for approximately 15 minutes, meaning most people won't be exiting Epcot until around 9:30 p.m.  The buses and monorail will continue to run until 1 hour after park closing, so that should give you until 10 p.m. to exit the park if you will be using Disney transportation.

    I hope this eases your mind, and I wish you a delicious meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall!  If you have any more questions before your Walt Disney World vacation, I would be happy to assist you.  Have a magical day!
