    Going to WDW for the 1st time in October. I noticed that some of the parks (MK & HS) close at 6:00 and 7:00 some eveings. Does this mean that the restaurants in the park will close that early as well? Thank you so much!

    Hi there, Jennifer!

    While some of the in-Park restaurants do open early for breakfast reservations, the restaurants do not accept dining reservations past closing time of the particular Park. Some of the restaurants will accept a reservation that is half an hour before the Park closes; some will accept a reservation actually at the Park closing time. No Park restaurant will take a reservation after Park closing time.

    If you make the last reservation of the day, you will be allowed, of course, to dine at your leisure. When you are finished, however, you will be guided to the exit by Cast Members stationed outside.

    Reservations can be made 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE, or by visiting the dining reservations page on the Disney Parks website.

    Happy travels!

    See you later, celebrator,
