    I made a dining reservation at rainforest cafe in animal kingdom for 6pm. I just realized that the park closes at 6. It says that the buses pickup up to 1 hr after the parks close. What would we do if dinner runs past 1hr?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The Rainforest Cafe at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a great way to end a most MAGICAL day.  The food is delicious and the atmosphere is just FUN.  Great choice!

    No worries!  The general rule is that buses run one hour after park closing.  However, you will find that buses tend to continue running after that, especially if the parks are full.  Take your time and enjoy your meal.  Unless you plan to stay at your table for three hours, you should be just fine.  Disney will be waiting.  

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  If you love to be thrilled, then the Wild Africa Trek is just what you need.  Submerge yourself into this exciting tour and forget that you're in the middle of Florida.

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
