    We have booked our trip for 4 nights and booked a 3day park hopper. We are arriving at 4p on the first day so I did not want to purched a ticket for that day. Are there any options outside of a full day ticket so we can enjoy the evening at a park?

    Hi Ashley,

    You will not be able to spend the evening at one of the theme parks without using a park ticket but I do have some other suggestions for you:-

    1/ Take a trip to Downtown Disney
    2/ Watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular and the Electrical Water Pageant from the beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort. This is actually one of my favourite things to do whilst at Walt Disney World. The Wishes soundtrack is piped in through speakers and it offers a totally different, relaxing view of the fireworks.
    3/ Take a stroll around Disney's Boardwalk.
    4/ Head on over to Chip and Dales Campfire Sing-a-Long at Disney's Fort Wilderness. This event is free to Disney Resort guests and includes a visit from Chip & Dale followed with an outdoor Disney movie.

    I hope that this has given you some ideas of how to spend your first evening and wish you a magical trip!
