    Hi Panel!! You guys are fantastic! I'll be in WDW in February when the parks close fairly early in the evening. Do the shops in DD close early then too? We'd like to have dinner and go shopping at DD after the parks close- as long as they are open!

    What's up, night owl? Hitting Downtown Disney after the parks close is a great idea. Who needs sleep, right?!

    The operating hours vary slightly depending on weekdays vs. weekends and restaurants vs. shops. The good thing is that the hours are consistent and don't mimic reduced park hours. The general rule of thumb is 11:00 p.m. for close time (marginally later on the weekends, and some individual restaurants and shops may set their own hours.)
