    Hi! We have a reservation for Rainforest Cafe' at Animal Kingdom on Friday Dec 2 at 6:15. I see from the hours listed for the park that day, AK closes at 5pm. Do you think they will be closing the park later in the evenings then like they are now?

    Hi, Holly!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I have a very similar question myself for a trip my family is taking to Walt Disney World Resort in December. I made a reservation as late as I could at an Animal Kingdom Theme Park restaurant and I'm hoping the park schedule is extended later that day. 

    I'm keeping my eye on two places to see if any schedules change. First, I'm watching the Disney Parks Blog for any new announcements about the park schedules in the fall and winter. I'm also keeping an eye on any possible changes in the Disney Parks Calendar.

    I hope that helps you keep an eye on any possible changes! Let me know if I can help with any additional questions before your vacation!
