After Hours

Disney After Hours has been offering Magic Kingdom guests exclusive, 3-hour park experiences at Walt Disney World, and now event nights are expanding to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

These separately ticketed event nights allow guests after-hours access to popular attractions with little to no wait time, and you can enter the park as early as 7:00 PM. Ice cream, popcorn, and select beverages are included with your admission, which costs $125 plus tax in advance and $129 plus tax when purchased day-of. Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can purchase at a discounted rate of $95 plus tax. The price tag may be a little steep for some, so if you’d like a better idea of the experience before buying, you can read our coverage of a Magic Kingdom event night here.

Newly added Disney After Hours evenings begin at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios starting in December 2018. Scroll through to learn more about what the night offers at each park.
