    Hi! There is an After Hours event at Animal Kingdom they day we’ll be there. Starts at 9. Park “closes” to day guests (us) at 9. We didn’t get FP+ to FoP, so we were planning to ride that toward the end of the night. What is the latest we can get in line?

    Hi Carrie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for sending in such a good question.  I am unsure of the actual date of your visit, but it is not unusual for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to close for the day at 9.00pm, so it does not necessarily mean that there is an After Hours Event taking place that day.  I fully understand your desire to experience Avatar Flight of Passage - it truly is an amazing attraction!  Firstly, I recommend that you continue checking the FastPass+ openings for the day of your visit, as it is possible that more times will become available.  If the park is scheduled to close at 9.00pm you may not be permitted to enjoy any of the attractions, dining and shops after that time - unless you are already in that location. So, in theory, if you join the standby line before 9.00pm you should be able to experience this wonderful attraction before you leave the park.   It's worth noting that Avatar Flight of Passage remains one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, so if the line is very long just before park closing, they may restrict the number of Guests they can allow to ride.

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can take advantage of Extra Magic Hours at the theme parks where the parks will open early, exclusively for Disney Resort hotel Guests.  Also, up until 2nd November 2019, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park will be open for extra, Extra Magic Hours between 7.00-8.00am, and Avatar Flight of Passage will also be open at that time, giving you more chance of shorter standby lines.   After 2nd November, Extra Magic Hours for this park are generally between 8.00-9.00am on select days.  You can see these times for the dates of your visit on the calendar here.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
