    How long do counter service restaurants stay open? If we watch Fantasmic are there places open to stop and get something to eat on our way of the park?

    Hi Amanda,

    Closing the parks is a fun way to end your day at the Walt Disney World Resort. It allows you to stroll out of the park and do last minute shopping. Plus you can grab evening pictures without as many guests in them.

    Generally, only one or two counter services restaurants are open at park closing. The number depends on the park and if there are any events. Generally, I do not count on getting something to eat at the parks close to closing.

    For Disney's Hollywood Studios, Fantasmic! lets you out by the front entrance where there are no counter service restaurants. You may have to walk against the masses, if they let you, and see if Starring Rolls is open.

    For late night snacks, head to Disney Springs or your resort.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
