    If we are in AK prior to 7:00 on an AK After Hours night and we have those thickets, do we have to go to the front of park to scan magic bands again? Not sure if you get wrist band for this or not - first time doing after hours.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Linda. It's nice to see you again!

     Disney After Hours events are nothing short of magical. Guests of these special events experience little to no wait times for popular attractions and have the opportunity to enjoy lots of complimentary Disney eats and treats! I recently had the very best time at Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park. I just loved strolling through what felt like a nearly empty park while munching on all-you-care-to-enjoy popcorn, my favorite Disney snack! 

     I know you'll have a memorable evening at Disney After Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This unique park is especially beautiful at night! Although, the Disney After Hours event doesn't officially begin until 8:30 or 9:00 PM (depending on the date), Guests with an event ticket may enter Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park as early as 7:00 PM. If you'll already be in the park with regular admission, you'll need to revisit the entrance to get your Disney After Hours wristband.

     When I experienced Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park, I noticed there were lots of Disney PhotoPass Photographers throughout the park. It was a super great time to stop for a few photos! The lines to be photographed were exceptionally short and the photos turned out great because there were so few people in the background. 

     I hope this was helpful, Linda. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
