Yes, there are some places to eat later. You'll have to check the Personal Navigator on each crsuie, but generally, Luigi's Pizzeria is open late, there's a late night snack buffet in The District adult area, Cabanas buffet is sometimes open late, and there's always a buffet the night of the pirate party. Room service is also available 24 hours a day.
