Walt Disney World Bringing Back Disney After Hours Events in 2024

tron - magic kingdom - at night

Disney After Hours events are returning to Walt Disney World Resort in 2024, starting January 10 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, January 11 at Magic Kingdom Park and February 2 at EPCOT.

The Details

Disney After Hours events will take place select nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios January 10 through April 10, 2024; select nights at Magic Kingdom January 11 through April 8, 2024; and select nights at EPCOT February 2 through April 4, 2024.

This separately ticketed event allows guests into the park of choice for three hours following the normal park closing time, and limits tickets so there are less guests during these hours.

Shorter wait times to select attractions and character experiences are a big reason to attend.

Disney also says the nighttime fireworks spectacular, “Enchantment” will return exclusively to the events at Magic Kingdom Park in 2024. So on event nights, early arrivals will have the opportunity to see both “Happily Ever After” and “Enchantment.” A standby queue is planned for TRON Lightcycle / Run only during these event nights, as well.

Plus ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select beverages at a variety of locations throughout each park during each event night are all included in the cost of the ticket.

Event times at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are from 9:30pm to 12:30am; and at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT from 10pm to 1am.


Disney After Hours ticket prices range from $155 to $175 (plus tax) for Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. EPCOT After Hours ticket pricing ranges from $149 to $159 (plus tax).

Specially priced tickets are available for Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members.

Event ticket sales open November 7, 2023, for guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, and Shades of Green who have a hotel reservation for an event night. They can be made by calling 407-W-Disney.
