    Hello, we have a 4:40 Reservation at Tusker House on a night that Animal Kingdom closes at 5:00. Will there be buses to take us back to our resort or should we make an earlier reservation?

    Hi Patricia!

    Oh....Tusker House!  It's one of our absolute favorite places to eat in all of Walt Disney World!  We absolutely love it!

    Yes, despite the fact that Disney's Animal Kingdom closes at 5 pm, buses should be available to get you back to your resort once you've finished your meal.  They typically run about an hour after park close, and longer until the park is clear of guests.  If, for some reason, the resort buses aren't running, you can simply hop on a bus to another park, and then catch a bus to your resort there. 

    If you have any questions about the buses, just stop at the transportation booth located near the bus stop.  They'll be happy to help!

    Have a magical vacation!
