    We are visiting WDW in October 2015 and I would like to take my children to eat at The Rain Forest Cafe while visiting Animal Kingdom as they have never been to Disney. Does this restaurant close when the park closes or is it open past that time?


    The Rain Forest Cafe at the entrance of Animal Kingdom typically stays open well past park closing on most days. However, its dining times for dinner do vary and it tends to close earlier than other restaurants at the resorts and Downtown Disney. My suggestion is for you to visit their landing page at www.disneyworld.com and look at the bottom of the right-hand page for their daily schedule and times if you have a concern before booking your reservation. The good news is that regardless of the time you book in the evening via Disney's online dining reservations system, you will have plenty of time to enjoy your meal.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
