          I think it closes at 10pm...... It is lighted and I remembered that most if not all of the small kids were probably in bed. Have fun and enjoy yourselves. Sorry for the slow response.

          When we were in Anaheim recently, we used Uber. It was very fast. And the Medieval Times is not too far away, so the ride will not be very expensive.

          Hi, Downtown Disney is just a bit further than the Park Entrance, so easy to do. We took a public city bus to Knott's, but they have tour buses as well. We did that to Universal studios. The hotel will help with arrangements.
