    I am wondering why Animal Kingdom park closes at 7pm on Thur Nov 16 when all other Nov evenings it is open til 8pm (10pm during the holiday week)? And any chance the hours in Nov will get extended?

    Hi, Kelly!

    Theme parks hours often change due to many circumstances. As the dates get closer, hours can be extended or shortened. 

    Usually, when there is one day with hours different from the rest of the week, there is some special event happening inside the theme park. It could be a Cast Member celebration or some other private event. 

    With just over a weeks before your Disney vacation, these times will more than likely remain the same. However, keep checking as some magic and pixie dust could happen. 

    Visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom at night is a beautiful sight that I hope you get to enjoy.
