Disney After Hours events have become increasingly popular to guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. These events have allowed guests to experience some of their favorite parks in a more intimate way. The ticketed events currently allow an extra three hours of magic for guests on select nights at select parks. However, this is about to change and expand. First off, more nights are being added to the Magic Kingdom for this after-hours event. Second, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are getting event nights as well.
The separately ticketed events will allow guests to enter the parks at 7:00 PM before the event begins. Ice cream, popcorn, and select beverages are also offered for these special Disney After Hours events. Perhaps even more exciting, these events offer guests the chance to go on attractions without having to wait forever in line. The same goes for meeting characters and other experiences!
