    Looking at park hours when we are in Disney, MK closes 3 nights at 6 pm, and HS and AK are only open till 8:30. Since we enjoy staying into the early morning (kiss good night). Do you have any ideas of why, and suggestions for what to do?

    Hi Jacalyn! Welcome BACK to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We absolutely love when our favorite friends come back to visit over and over again.

    While I don’t have anything official to report as to why those nights are showing as early closures at Magic Kingdom Park, I do have a sneaking suspicion that you might have uncovered a few nights of an annual specially ticketed event whose dates for this year are still yet to be announced. There may be very little truth to my assumption, as those nights could be reserved for private special events. However, you can still have a lot of fun no matter what is truly going on.

    While the hours that stores close at Disney Springs vary depending on the day, the majority of restaurants and entertainment options are open until 2 A.M. every night. Disney’s BoardWalk is also a fun smaller-scale destination of restaurants and nightlife. Yehaa Bob Jackson hosts a wonderfully wacky musical bar-style show at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, or the entire family can take part in the planned activities of all Disney Resort Hotels, from Chip 'n' Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long to watching a movie under the stars next to a life-size statue of the Cars gang at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.

    Keep checking those park hours as they can always change in the guests favor at any point in your planning, including up to the day of. I hope you’re getting excited for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Jacalyn, and We’ll See You Real Soon!
