Walt Disney World has a wonderful Special Event on select days throughout the year at 3 of its 4 parks. Disney’s After Hours allows guests to enjoy one of the parks for three hours after it has already closed to the general population. Guests can enter the specific park as early as 7pm and do NOT have to wait for the park to close. It is available at Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom. Your ticket purchased is for a specific date of After Hours and is not an open ticket. Because only a limited number of tickets is sold per night, the events do sell out. This is a good thing because it means there will be a set amount of guests in the park. Lines for your favorite attractions and favorite characters will be much shorter. Also available to After Hours guests are unlimited popcorn, ice cream, and select beverages – all included with your ticket. YUMM!!
One of the best things about After Hours at Animal Kingdom is longer access to Pandora at night. Pandora is a gorgeous land all the time but when it lights up at night, it is truly amazing. Open attractions at Animal Kingdom for After Hours include:
- Flight of Passage
- Na’vi River Journey
- Pandora Drummers
- Tree of Life Awakenings
- It’s Tough to be A Bug
- Rivers of Light
- Expedition Everest
- TriceraTop Spin
- ….and more!
Hollywood Studios has so much to offer and so much of it is more fun at night! The Tower of Terror is like a whole different attraction at night – when you are brought to the top of the tower and the doors open and it is dark! Ugh, I love it. This After Hours even will also give you access to shorter lines for the new Toy Story Land! Enjoy short waits for:
- Slinky Dog Dash
- Alien Swirling Saucers
- Toy Story Mania
- Star Wars Launch Bay
- Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
- Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
- Rock’n’ Roller Coaster
- Meet n Greets with Toy Story Pals, Mickey & Minnie, and Olaf
- ….and more!
Magic Kingdom has the most attractions of all the parks. It is definitely tough to see and do everything you want to do in a given day. With admission to After Hours at the Magic Kingdom, you can get three extra hours to do all the great stuff you may have missed or re-ride your favorites with little or no wait:
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
- Splash Mountain
- Peter Pan’s Flight
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
- Disney Princess Meet & Greets
- …so much more!!
