    Visiting Mar and right now (Nov) the parks close around 8/9pm. Are parks open later in the spring, if not why are guests able to book dining for 7:30pm? Don't want to feel rushed, should I reschedule for an earlier time? TIA

    Hello Valinda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I really enjoy visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during spring. The weather is great and you will be able to catch Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, which is absolutely stunning.

    I have already visited in March, and my experience was that park hours changed a bit during my visit. Theme park closing time was actually a little later depending on the day of the week and park, and those alterations were more common for Magic Kingdom staying open later. It was Spring Break season so I believe changes were made to accommodate visitors. You can check the online calendar right now, but please note that hours are subject to change without notice. I suggest checking back as you get closer to your travel dates.

    However, do not worry about your dining reservation. You do not have to reschedule because you will not be or feel rushed. I have already made late reservations at restaurants located in the theme parks many times and it was not a problem at all. If you area able to book those times, you will receive the same excellent service as any other Guest.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope this helps you while planning. Please stop by real soon!

    Best magical wishes,
