    Despite having visited WDW a number of times I have never heard or experienced the Disney After Hours events. I am wondering how it is different from extra magic hours when staying at a Disney resort?

    ChEARs Christine,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Walt Disney World Resort is magical all the time, but it comes ALIVE at night. I am so excited that you are planning to visit the Parks after hours!

    Extra Magic Hours are some of the best perks for staying at select Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. Certain attractions are open for your enjoyment, and the best thing is that they are scheduled in both the morning and the evening. When I visit the Parks during Extra Magic Hours I feel like I’m a VIP!

    In contrast, Disney After Hours is like the V-VIP party! You, along with a select number of Guests get to experience a unique 3-hour party which includes special Character Greetings, little-to-no wait on popular Attractions and Food! All of this is included in your price of admission. You can even enter the park an hour early at 7:00 p.m. to get a jumpstart on your party!

    Disney After Hours is offered at three parks - Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and at Magic Kingdom Park. The dates for the events have been released through the Spring, so check your schedule, get your ticket, and party the night away!
