    I have a reservation at the Crystal Palace at 7:15 and park hours say that the park closes at 7:00 pm. Do the restaurants stay open later than the parks?

    Hi Katie!

    You are going to have an amazing time at Walt Disney World! Many of the Walt Disney World restaurants accept reservations past the park opening time and they stay opened a bit later than the park. It's wonderful that you have an Advanced Dining Reservation at Crystal Palace after Magic Kingdom closes. 

    This will ensure you can enjoy all that the park has to offer for the day and stretch your time in the park even longer! 

    You may even get to see the Kiss Goodnight, which is a wonderful experience that most guests don't even get to see! The Kiss Goodnight plays every 30 minutes after the park closes and lasts about two minutes. You can see twinkling on Cinderella Castle and hear the music and magical departing message. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
