Walt Disney World adds Afternoon ticket option for theme parks

Walt Disney World is about to open its version of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot will soon welcome the Food and Wine Festival and a new nighttime show “Epcot Forever.” They’re also offering guests a new way to save little money by sleeping in — the Mid-Day Magic Ticket.

Mid-Day Magic Tickets are valid for admission after 12 p.m. and were designed with flexibility in mind. Mid-Day Magic Tickets may be used at any of the four theme parks, allowing you to catch a parade, enjoy a meal, experience a few favorite attractions, and then get ready for Disney’s magical nighttime shows.

You will be able to add these tickets to your My Disney Experience Account and select Fastpasses. However, keep in mind that any Fastpass selections made for use before 12pm will not be valid with this ticket.

The 2-, 3- and 4-Day Mid-Day Magic Tickets are available for use on or before Dec. 15, 2019:

  • Two-day ticket from $88 a day, plus tax (from $176 total, plus tax)
  • Three-day ticket from $84 a day, plus tax (from $252 total, plus tax)
  • Four-day ticket from $79 a day, plus tax (from $316 total, plus tax)

Tickets are valid for one theme park per day. Prices are for ages 10 and older. The price varies based on selected start date. Lower prices may apply on certain dates. The two-day ticket expires four days after the selected start date. The three-day ticket expires five days after the selected start date. The four-day ticket expires seven days after the selected start date.

With promotions and ticket offers like this, it seems like Walt Disney World is proactively countering some forecast light attendance between now and when “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” opens in December. In the past that has meant even more creative special offers, what do you think about the half-day ticket option? Will you use it?
