    I'm so excited to be going to DW for the first time since I was 16, with my sister, two best friends and my 6 year old son no less! We are going in OCT 2016. Benefits of staying at the park till close? will we miss our ride back to Caribbean Beach?

    Hi Stephanie,

    What a very magical vacation you are planning! October at the Walt Disney World Resort is my absolute favorite time to travel. I love Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. Plus the weather is perfect with low humidity.

    While my family rarely closes the park, it is fun to stay and ride the attractions late at night and do a little extra shopping. Unless it is Extra Magic Hours for that park, crowds will thin out a bit. It is also a great way to capture memories at night with quieter street to take photos.

    You will only miss your bus back to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort if you stay more than an hour past closing. This is when your coach turns into a pumpkin and you will need to call a cab.

    Wishing you a magical day!
