    I recently made ADR's for our upcoming vacation however I noticed our reservation at Animal Kingdoms Rainforest Cafe is for 7:15pm and the park is closing at 7:00pm. Is this an error or do some restaurants stay open after park closing?

    Hi Abigail!

    Your question is something that many guests wonder about when they are making dining plans for their Walt Disney World vacations.

    The Rain Forest Cafe located at the Animal Kingdom Theme Park is actually just outside the park entrance. This restaurant will take reservations after the park closes so there is no worry about your plans. In fact your reservation time will be perfect for you. Enjoy the park until it closes at 7 and then head to the exit where you will find signs pointing to the Rainforest Cafe off to the right. It is a perfect spot to rest your feet and relax while enjoying a great dinner. The buses will run for a couple of hours after closing and they will not leave you stranded at the Animal Kingdom park just because you are dining there.

    Indeed your plan is perfect and you can relax about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!
