    Are there any after-hours events for the Magic Kingdom past June 2024 and Epcot past July 18, 2024?

    Hey Steven! Welcome back to planDisney! I’m glad you brought another question to us!

    The Disney After Hours events are a great way to experience the Disney Parks later in the evening with minimal crowds! Currently, Magic Kingdom Park has After Hours events scheduled only on select nights through June 27, 2024, while EPCOT hosts the late-night good times on select nights through July 18, 2024. Disney’s Hollywood Studios will hold the latest dates for After Hours events on select nights through August 29, 2024. At present, no additional events have been announced for the fall.

    Steven, my best guess is that After Hours Events for the fall are unlikely to be scheduled because fall is traditionally known as the “party season” at the Walt Disney World Resort. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place on select nights in Magic Kingdom Park from August 9, 2024 through October 31, 2024. Then, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party begins in early November and lasts through late December. These events require special tickets to enter Magic Kingdom Park. The parties typically begin at 7:00 PM with ticketholders able to enter the park at 4:00 PM! That is a great perk of the parties!

    If you’re visiting in the fall, you might want to consider either of the parties as an alternative to the After Hours events. Similar to the After Hours events, the parties are held later in the evening. The parties run through midnight. The one big difference is that the crowds at the parties are larger than the After Hours events. 

    I hope you get to attend one of the parties or a future After Hours event that fits into your travel plans! All of these late-nights are a great time!

    Dreams do come true!
