Today Walt Disney World Resort announced the return of its Disney After Hours events. These events will allow guests to stay in the parks later into the evening and experience some magical offerings that aren’t normally available to day guests. At the Magic Kingdom, for example, Disney Enchantment will be returning for the after hours event. This is the firework spectacular that was presented at Magic Kingdom as part of Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary. Disney After Hours will be available at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
