Mama Melrose/Osborne Lights at closing time

We have a 7:50 p.m. Mama Melrose reservation on a night that HS closes at 8:00 p.m. Will the Osborne Lights still be on by the time we walk out of the restaurant? If so, is it possible to walk down the Streets of America on our way out?

Thanks in advance for any input!

If you are going to dinner 10 minutes before the park closes my guess is that everything will be roped off or CMs directing traffic from the resturant to the exit of the park when you finish eating. I don't think Disney will want random people walking into places where they are trying to clean up (especially around the back of the park where the lights are located.)

From looking at the map of DHS, it looks like Mama Melrose's is on the back side of Streets of America, so was just wondering if that's the exit you can take when you leave the restaurant, down the Streets of America, or if you exit the other direction, which is on the back side of Streets of America. I know we won't be able to wander randomly. Just asking for others' experiences in this situation, whether the lights are still on and whether that's the exit you take to get out or not.

When I was there on Nov. 9th, 2012 I saw the 8pm Fantasmic and then was able to go to the Osborne Lights afterwards and look around.

There were no photopass photographers then but the lights were still lit up. At 9pm they were turned off.

DHS had a closing time of 8pm.

So I'm not sure if the lights will still be on for you to enjoy if they continue turning them off an hour after the park closes.
They could have also turned them off at 9pm because that was the night of the party for the marathon racers and they wanted to get us all out of the park before the marathoners arrived.

So you could see if the lights are still on once you leave Mama Melrose but maybe have a plan to see them another night if they aren't on or if you aren't allowed to go that way.
