    What is the latest you can get in line for a ride at wdw before closing?

    I am glad you came to planDisney, Linda! I've got some good news for you!

    Guests visiting any of the four Disney Parks are permitted to get into line for a park attraction up until the final minute prior to park closing! For example, if Magic Kingdom Park is scheduled to close at 6:00PM, Guests may get in line up until 5:59PM! There is a calendar of Disney Parks operating hours on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Knowing this information definitely helps with your park planning strategy! I will often save a favorite attraction, or an attraction with a long wait time, for our final ride of the night. Sometimes the wait time has been reduced just prior to park close.

    After my family enjoys that final ride, we take a leisurely stroll as we make our way out of the park. I like leaving the parks after official closing time because it provides a great opportunity to see more of the parks without huge crowds of people around. You begin to notice things that you've never seen before. After we leave the park, we head back to our Disney Resort Hotel to wrap up our Disney-day with a late dinner, snacks, and/or drinks!
