So, does anyone know why the Animal Kingdom closes early? Is it because of the live animals and the safety of guests? It seems a shame to have a park (that is bigger than MK, EPCOT, and HS combined) close so early.

I don't know the hours, but I know the zoo here has summer time hours but even they are not that late. After a certain hour you have some of the animals that naturally turn in and you wouldn't see much. Then you have the nocturnal hunters. I know they have a way of keeping them separate, but I am sure they aren't taking any chances on guest safety. - Lelundrial  614.7 #324 3:19PM
Makes sense...would be cool though if they could keep certain areas of the park open later. - mrsincredible  1088.6 #6 3:23PM
How cool is it that all of the different species on the Savannah are trained to certain calls (whistles, bells, etc) to go back to their night houses when it gets dark, and planters go out and replant greens for them to eat. - mrsincredible  1088.6 #6 3:30PM
I know that in Oct they close at 5 pm. I'll b going in Oct and i wish they were open until a later time. - yessy  224.9 #39 4:07PM
I heard that they want to gather the animals before it gets dark...they bring most of the animals in a close gated area at night, and let them back out before the parks open...also to feed them...they said the animals know when you come in for the night... - islandgirl58  370.1 #22 4:10PM
When they need to come in for the night...also to clean up the area for the next day... - islandgirl58  370.1 #22 4:11PM
During the winter it gets darker faster...I guess that's why they close at 5...summer usually stays lighted later... - islandgirl58  370.1 #22 4:13PM
Yes, it is because of the animals. We bother them all day so i guess they figure the animals would like to sleep in peace. :) - samndawn67  21.8 #160 7:04AM
LOL, you noisy humans on that big metal beast. - Lelundrial  614.7 #324 7:22AM
