    Wondering what dining options are available in the park during extra evening hours at Epcot and Magic Kingdom? Love the site…so helpful!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Brian! Your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation is quickly approaching, and you've made a great choice to stay at one of the Disney Deluxe Resorts to have access to some great extras like Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! I always jump at any chance I have to spend some extra hours in the parks late at night; I just love the magical ambiance of those late-night hours! Staying in the parks sure does work up an appetite, though, so let's dig into what food options you'll find during this special time!

    After reviewing the hours for dining locations at both Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT, it looks like there will be some availability for counter-service dining at each park during Extended Evening Theme Park Hours in the next few months, including Casey's Corner, The Lunching Pad, Aloha Isle, Main Street Bakery, and Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom. In EPCOT there were more limited locations showing up for these extra hours, but Rose and Crown Pub was available and you can also expect to find some snack carts available with goodies like popcorn, bottled beverages, and ice cream novelties in both parks. Keep in mind that hours and offerings are always subject to change, and locations open for Extended Evening Theme Park Hours may only be open for a portion of the event time in some cases. You can always search within the My Disney Experience mobile app while you're in the parks to see what's available in real-time when you start to get a rumbly in your tummy!

    Brian, make sure to join the Virtual Queue at 6 PM on these nights for an extra chance to save the galaxy on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT or enter the grid on TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom! There's nothing more thrilling than a late-night ride on these two popular attractions! By the time of your visit, Tiana's Bayou Adventure will also be up and running, so keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for details about how you might be able to drop on in to see Princess Tiana and her band of cajun critters during extended hours as well! 

    I hope this helps, and I hope you have the best time making magical memories during your upcoming visit! As always, come back anytime if we can help again! At planDisney, we're all ears!

    See you real soon,
