    I have read that as long as you are in line for a ride when the park "closes" you will still be able to ride and also that shops are open after closing time. This sounds so fun but do the buses to resorts run this late? I don't want to get stuck

    Hi Rebecca!

    Yes, the lines typically cut off at closing time, so if you're in line, you'll be able to ride!  The shops do tend to stay open a bit after closing as well, for those lingering shoppers. 

    The buses to the resorts typically run up until 1 hour after the park closes, and during peak times with massive crowds, they will even run later than that. 

    Lingering on Main Street, USA is one of my favorite things to do.  My husband and I fondly remember the days we would sit with an ice cream cone and watch the crowds go by as we watched Cinderella Castle in all her glory.  Good times! 

    Have a magical vacation!
