    Hi

    I noticed that the parks close between 5-7pm. What are the best things to do in the evenings? We'll be at the Cheyenne Oct 14-18.

    Thanks

    Hi everyone, I notice that the parks close at 6pm or 7pm during our whole stay.

    What do people do from 7pm onwards? except have dinner? Thanks!

    Combined these as I'm sure you'll get the same answers.

    As we have the troops we try to stick to their home bedtime routine so after food, bath/showered followed by mum and dad relaxing while they slept :goodvibes

    Theoretically Buffalo Bill's Dinner Show, The Nex Arcade, Cinema, Shopping and swimming. In reality we usually manage a nice meal at Cafe Mickey, Planet Hollywood, Rainforest Cafe or Annette's Diner, followed by a little shopping, then dependent on the kids we've either hit the sack, gone for a drink at one of the village bars or returned to the hotel bar.
    The Cheyenne has a very nice bar with it's own band. BTW.
    and
    Buffalo Bill's is a well spent if somewhat expensive way to pass the evening.:)

    We tend to have tea around 6ish, have a wander round disney village and then head to one of the bars in the hotels for a drink before heading back about 9. We stayed at the cheyenne but found the bar areas very crowded and loud for children so go to either the New York or the Sequoia and the bars are much quieter and relaxing.

    I have images of us watching a movie in the room and falling asleep at 8:30pm!

    I was hoping the parks would be open later with some events or night time parades, I'm disappointed everything shuts down so early.

    Yes that is very early. In December and November there are many days with closing times at 18:00! :scared1:

    On such days I would use the parks until they close and I would not do have a big meal or shopping during the day. These are all activities you can do after park closing. There are also many hotel restaurants that every visitor can use. You are not stuck to the restaurants at the Disney Village.
    And after Dinner you can explore the shops at the Disney Village. That should fill your evenings. :thumbsup2

    Same for us. I double quote the bit about the feet :thumbsup2
    My kids had fun in the Game Hall just behind the Planet Hollywood but it coats a lot - two euros each token and you usually need two for each game !!!

    I don't even last in the parks past about 7.15pm.

    Then we go for table service dinner, and by the time we've relaxed over that, its time to wander back through the Village to the hotel, relax in a bath, then bed, and set the alarm for early next day.

    I guess it really does depend how hectic your day in the parks has been - we go for 3 days, 2 nights, so we're really on the go all those 3 days. Which means, by about 9.30pm, we're ready to sink into bed and go to sleep!

    I've also seen mechanical bull riding for children, some sort of human bouncing bungee jump thing for tweens, a mechanical car ride for kiddies, etc around the village.

    I agree about eating in one of the resort restaurants and doing a bit of a resort tour, perhaps with the assistance of the Minnie train.
