Select Walt Disney World Restaurants May Remain Open After Park Hours Are Reduced

We previously shared the news that Walt Disney World will reduce park hours beginning September 8, 2020. Now, we are seeing that select restaurants may remain open after park hours are reduced.


While Disney has yet to make an official announcement, when looking at restaurant reservation availability on the Walt Disney World website after the park hours are reduced, guests can make reservations at select restaurants that are scheduled to remain open after the park closes.

Magic Kingdom’s park hours will be 9am to 6pm beginning September 8. Two restaurants including Be Our Guest Restaurant and Liberty Tree Tavern are open for dinner until 7pm, an hour after park closing. Reservations are available for the 6pm – 7pm hour. Table service restaurants showing closure at 6pm with the park include Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, The Plaza Restaurant, and Tony’s Town Square Restaurant.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
