    What if the park closes at 9:00pm but there is fireworks at 9:00pm? Will the buses run until one hour after the fireworks or still just until 10:00pm?

    Hi Fred,

    No worries! You can relax and enjoy either the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at Magic Kingdom or IllumiNations at Epcot and be assured that you will be able to get a ride back to your resort on Disney transportation. Both fireworks shows are about 12 minutres long and often begin at the official park closing time.

    Disney buses are scheduled to run at least an hour after closing time, but they frequently operate later than that until all guests have been cleared from the parks. They won't shut down at an arbitrary time, especially if there are still guests waiting. 

    Even if you are in the back of either park, you should have plenty of time to take in the fireworks and make your way leisurely to the bus stop without fear of being stranded. 

    Thanks for visitng the Moms Panel with your question. Please let us know if we can do anything else to help as you plan your vacation. It will be here before you know it. Enjoy!
