DINOSAUR In Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park Will Close 1 Hour Prior To Park Closing Starting March 31

Fans of the ride that brings you back in time to the age of the dinosaurs will want to make note that the operating times for DINOSAUR will be changing soon.  With a few exceptions, DINOSAUR normally opens 30 minutes after park opening and closes 30 minutes prior to park closing.

Starting on March 31, DINOSAUR is scheduled to open the same time Animal Kingdom Theme Park opens and close 1 hour prior to park closing.  There are exceptions to this, however.  Those exceptions include Extra Magic Hours and Disney After Hours events.  The ride will be open for the duration of these special times.  In the case of Disney After Hours, the ride will close 1 hour prior to the park closing time but will reopen for the duration of the special ticketed event.

Those fearing that the ride will not be open for the same number of hours should fear not!  Originally DINOSAUR would open 30 minutes after park open and close 30 minutes prior to park close.  This equates to 1 hour each day that the ride was unavailable. The new schedule starting on March 31 still renders the ride unavailable for 1 hour.

We checked the operating schedule of the ride and compared it to the current park schedule.  This new operating schedule appears to be in effect through July 31 which is the latest date that the DINOSAUR operating schedule is available.  Fans will still have plenty of time to race back in time and rescue the Iguanadon!

Keep checking back for updates to park hours and ride operating times!
