    Hello, we will be visiting Disney World July 2nd thru the 6th. I was wanting to know what else is the to do after the parks have closed? I would like to take my kids (7, 4, 2) to se more than just the parks

    Hi Marisol!

    There are a lot of activities outside of the theme parks to be enjoyed both during the day and at night.  Some great ideas include:
    • Dining and shopping in Downtown Disney
    • Dining at the Boardwalk and exploring the area around Crescent Lake between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot
    • Renting a boat and exploring Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake
    • Horseback riding or pony rides at Fort Wilderness
    • Cirque de Soleil in Downtown Disney
    • Enjoying a dinner show such as the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review or the Spirit of Aloha
    • Exploring the various Disney Resorts, especially the Disney Deluxe Resorts
    • Enjoying a day at the water parks

    That said, the parks will be open fairly late for most young children.  I recommend getting an early morning start, getting to the parks at least 30 minutes before their posted opening time.  Then you might think about taking an afternoon break away from the parks back at your hotel, and then returning to the parks at night.  The parks are beautiful at night; it's my favorite time of day to visit them!

    I hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
