    Hi! I'm currently planning my 4th trip to Disney, and I have a question based on curiosity only: why does the Animal Kingdom always closes earlier than the other parks? Thanks :)

    Hi Alexanne!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom, as you know, is full of all kinds of animals, and out of respect for them, the park closes earlier.  This allows the animals down time and so that they're not  'on stage' for extended periods of time.  The plastic straws are also not allowed because they can be a hazard to the animals.

    Have a magical vacation!
