Cast Members Confirm Select Restaurants Will Remain Open After Theme Parks Close Beginning September 8th

    Earlier today, we wrote that select restaurants may remain open after park close beginning September 8th. We initially based that assumption on the ability to make dining reservations up to 55 minutes after park close in some cases.

    Since we first wrote the story, we’ve been in contact with several Cast Members who have confirmed that Disney plans on keeping the following restaurants open for an hour after the official closing time for the theme parks.

    Magic Kingdom (closes at 6pm beginning September 8th)

    • Be Our Guest (will seat guests until 7pm)
    • Liberty Tree Tavern (will seat guests until 7pm)

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios (closes at 7pm beginning September 8th)

    • 50s Prime Time Cafe (will seat guests until 8pm)
    • Oga’s Cantina (will seat guests until 8pm)
    • Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant (will seat guests until 8pm)

    Cast Member advisories have been updated to note the new closing times listed above, and Cast answering questions via chat or phone should have the latest information reflecting the later closing times. In addition, Disney has updated their official website to include the closing times listed above for the respective restaurants.

    If Disney changes plans, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
