    Are the stores at Magic Kingdom still open after Happily Every After is over? If so, how late? I was wondering if this would be a good time to shop while waiting for the Kiss Goodnight? Thanks so much!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicolette! 

    One of my absolute favorite times to shop is at the end of the day, as I meander my way through the shops on Main Street, U.S.A., before heading back to my resort for the night. 

    Nicolette, while some smaller shops may close at the official park closing time, the majority of shops, including those on Main Street, U.S.A., stay open 30 minutes to an hour after official closing time. This should give you plenty of time to shop between Happily Ever After and the Kiss Goodnight, but I would recommend that you verify with a cast member for the exact closing time if you are interested in exploring a shop not located on Main Street, U.S.A. 

    Nicolette, did you know that if you want to do some shopping earlier in the day, there is no need to lug your packages around with you? Simply ask the cashier at the point of sale to either send your items to the front of the park for pick-up, or deliver them directly to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room!

    I hope that this helped, Nicolette, and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical vacation. 

    We hope to see ya real soon!
