Disney After Hours

Until now, the Disney After Hours event has been exclusively held at Magic Kingdom. Disney Parks Blog recently announced that the event will be expanding to two additional parks: Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

If you don’t know what Disney After Hours is, be sure to check out our Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park blog post! This event is a great way to experience Magic Kingdom (and now Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom too!) with low crowds and little-to-no wait times. Ice cream, popcorn, and select beverages are also included with your event admission!

Here is the event schedule for Hollywood Studios: Dec. 8, 15 and 22, 2018; and Jan. 5, 12 and 19, 2019; Feb. 2, 9 and 16, 2019; March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2019; and April 6 and 13, 2019.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

At Animal Kingdom, you can enjoy both attractions in Pandora: The World of Avatar, the Tree of Life Awakenings projection show, and more! Tickets will be on sale November 15th, 2018.


Tickets for any of these Disney After Hours events are $125 (plus tax) when purchased in advance, $129 (plus tax) when purchased day-of, and $95 (plus tax) for Annual Passholders and DVC Members. Entry to this event starts at 7pm on event nights. If you wish to enjoy the parks before 7pm, you will need to purchase regular daytime admission in addition to your Disney After Hours event ticket.

I highly recommend taking advantage of this event! With park attendance getting busier and busier each year, this is a must-do. You can get so much done in just a few hours, AND you can eat all the popcorn and ice cream you want!
