What is Disney After Hours? 

The Disney After Hours events allow guests to experience 3 hours of exclusive access to select Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks with little-to-no wait times for some of the most popular attractions and Character meets! 

The cost of a Disney After Hours ticket also includes treats like popcorn, select beverages, and novelty ice creams. Plus, you’ll be able to enter the park from 7pm, without needing a Disney Magic Ticket or Park Pass reservation, giving you up to 6 hours of admission to maximise your fun. 

And on select event dates, you’ll be surrounded by the dazzling décor of The World’s Most Magical Celebration! It’s the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration—taking place now through March 31, 2023.

Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park takes place from 10pm to 1am, with more than 20 popular attractions and Character Meets open for guests, including Space Mountain, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan’s Flight and Haunted Mansion! If you arrive early, you’ll even be able to see the spectacular Disney Enchantment fireworks over Cinderella Castle and get a few rides in before the event has even begun.
