    Do restaurants stay open past park closing? We're going late April and would like to dine at Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom on a night the park closes at 6. Would we be able to get a later ADR like a 6pm so we don't lose park time by dining? Thanks!

    The answer to this depends on a number of factors including, which restaurant, which park, park closing time, and the anticipated crowd level in the parks. The best way to find out about the schedule for any particular restaurant on any particular day is to call Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE. But in general, yes, the restaurants often do stay open a bit past park closing time. Park closing time most means that new guests will not be allowed into the parks after that time and the rides will begin to be shut down for the night, but some of the shops and restaurants will remain open for a period of time. It is certainly possible that on a night when a park was closing at 6:00, the restaurants in the parks would take a reservation for 5:30 or even later. Again, for specifics you should call Disney Dining.
