May trip... Hours keep getting shorter

Well, we will only be there the 13th and 14th... Starting to second guess my 5pm ressies at Finnegans on the 14th, cause now US will be closed at 7 pm... We aren't big "fast food" fans and will be hungry by 5 based on previous theme park experience. But it seems like the darkside knows we have an early flight the next day and wants to make sure we are rested up. With the parks closing so early is it going to be dead that last hour or so, and would our time be better spent hitting the rides? I figure 90 minutes to eat, maybe finnegans flips people faster than that? I know we can't wait till 7 to eat, I will have two bobcats by then who will be pissy from hunger lol.

can you do finnegans around 1:00 - 2-00 that day then try dinner in city walk or at the hotels?

if you are in line for a ride and the park closes, you are allowed to stay in that line to do the ride.

you would be out of the park maybe 7:30 then.

We might just move mythos later... I have (had) two sit down choices... End of a long trip, and I know we will be so tired, so I thought we'd do early lunch at mythos (11:30) and dinner at 5... But maybe I can keep the bobcats happy with a heavy snack mid afternoon and push thru to dinner after everything closes. I am a huge parrot head, and want to go to margaritaville... But I don't think they take ressies? You think they would be slammed at 7:30ish on a Wednesday? Maybe we should just go back to RPR and eat and crash. We are getting so close to our trip! A week and a half till the WDW portion begins

Thanks! Since we will basically walk right by it on the way back to RPR (right?) i think that would be a good choice... Really can't wait!

I'm glad you posted! That's the week we'll be in Orlando, and it helps to know ahead of time that the hours have been changed. I hadn't even thought to check again!

Well that's really annoying. I hadn't looked at the hours in awhile so thanks for the heads up they had been reduced.
