Disney After Hours returns to the Magic Kingdom

Visitors looking to maximize their time at the Magic Kingdom have a special event just for them. “Disney After Hours” is a limited-attendance hard ticket event that allows guests to stay late in the park with 25 of the park’s most popular attractions and experiences open with little or no wait.

During the special ticketed event, you can get in as early as 7pm, enjoy a little dinner, take in the fireworks, and then when the day guests leave you have the park to yourself. Disney also sets up outdoor vending carts around the park that offer free sodas, popcorn, and Mickey’s premium ice cream treats.

We enjoyed our romp through the Magic Kingdom when we were invited to attend Disney After Hours. We were able to hit every ride we wanted to, some more than once, with our longest wait being 15 minutes. The only complaint was the humidity. With these fall and winter dates, that won’t be a problem at all.

Not everyone goes just for the rides, but if that’s you, then Disney After Hours is a great option, even if it does cost $125 plus tax (advanced price).

  1. This sounds like Extra Magic Hours only anyone can buy a ticket (not just those who are staying at an on property Disney Hotel). Makes me wonder if Disney will slowly be taking away the EMH Perk from the masses who stay on property in the not so distant future; all in an effort to make even more money. $125.00 seems pretty steep as well.
