    Hi We are heading over there from Australia to the run Disney weekend in January. We did this in Anaheim Disneyland and loved it. My question is, is Disneyworld open for a extra hour for shopping after the rides stop, like Disneyland does? Thank you

    Hello Sharlee,

    Welcome to Walt Disney World.  I am so happy you enjoyed your Disneyland vacation!  I think you will love visiting Walt Disney World just as much.  RunDisney is such fun; I hope you get a coast-to-coast medal! 

    In general, most shops in the theme parks do remain open for an hour or so after park closing.  If you are not in a hurry to return to your hotel, this is often a great time to do some shopping and get a little late night snack.  Another benefit of staying in the theme park for some shopping is the smaller crowds when exiting and waiting for your transportation back to your hotel.

    Sharlee if you have any other questions, please come back and visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Did you know you can also ask and view other Guests questions by specialty, like runDisney?  At the top of the Disney Parks Moms Panel page there is a filter for selecting the specialty you want to view.  I have found great tips about my runDisney events by viewing previously asked questions.  I even found information about my Castaway Cay 5K there.   

    Have a MAGICAL vacation and may your running shoes be sprinkled with Pixie Dust!
