    We have a reservation at a table service restaurant in Magic Kingdom for 9PM during our stay next month. Since the park closes at 10PM for the Disney After Hours event, what is going to happen once we leave the restaurant in the middle of the After Hours?

    Hello Jonathan!

    Welcome to planDisney! A late-night table service reservation in Magic Kingdom sure sounds splendid! 

    Disney After Hours
    at Magic Kingdom Park is an amazing event that I hope to one day enjoy as it looks like it will feel intimate and a great way to ride my favorite rides with a limited wait. My kids have not reached the age where they could last till 1 am but when they do I may just make that my evening! All guests who have a paid ticket for the After Hours event get a wristband that lets them have access from after Park Closing till 1 am to go on rides, eat free delicious treats and enjoy the late-night atmosphere. Make sure to enter Magic Kingdom Park before it closes for the evening and make it to your reservation on time. Enjoy your meal and don’t feel rushed but be prepared to be gently asked to leave the Park by lovely Cast Members as you will not have the wristband. The After Hours event officially begins at 10 pm so until then you can still shop and enjoy the Park. 

    If you still want to celebrate and keep the night from ending I suggest some after-dinner drinks at Enchanted Rose at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. A short monorail or walk away after leaving Magic Kingdom Park and you can have a cocktail or even hot tea to finish the evening in style. In addition, since everyone else is staying up late make sure to utilize the next morning with Theme Park Early Entry which is a perk for all Walt Disney World Resort guests! 

    I hope this helps and make sure to let us know if you have any more questions! We are glad to help!
