    I am planning a conference trip in Orlando in July. Twilight tickets are for 5pm and after, but it looks like Animal Kingdom closes earlier than other parks. Should I choose a different theme park or will AK stay open later?

    Hey there, it's great to have you here at planDisney!

    The great thing about coming to Walt Disney World Resort for a conference or a convention is the ability to snag offerings like Twilight Park Tickets for attendees, allowing everyone the chance to let loose and enjoy their evenings out at the theme parks! Just how much time however, does depend on how long they each remain open and as you mentioned - Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park does often close earlier than the others - sometimes by several hours!

    On the date in July that you've indicated, the Hours & Events Calendar lists Magic Kingdom Park as the one with the latest closing time, and if you really want to have the most value out of that ticket for the folks attending your conference that would give them the biggest return on time to enjoy the attractions compared to somewhere that would only provide them with an hour.

    In my personal opinion, unless these conference-goers had a particularly strong interest in wanting to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom, I'd choose another theme park as select attractions like Kilimanjaro Safaris have been known to close even earlier than posted closing hours. 

    Now if you’ve got a lot more room in your budget to work with for your conference, groups have been able to book out locations within the theme parks for their celebrations and events after hours and even options to include rides as part of their event! In the meantime, feel free to encourage any of your attendees to ask us for any tips or advice here at planDisney ahead of your conference next month!

    Here’s to productive days and fun-filled nights at the theme parks!
