    Is Disney after hours worth the money?

    Hi there, Teri!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to see you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in November! Your trip to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" will be here before you know it.

    My family attended Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park in late May and thoroughly enjoyed the entire event. We arrived at the iconic park around 6:30 p.m. so that we were ready to go when Guests were allowed to enter the park at 7:00 p.m. On the night we attended, the event took place from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. I was able to book and use 3 FastPass+ selections between 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. with my Disney After Hours ticket. 

    During the event, we rode 14 attractions with little to no wait and enjoyed snacking on complimentary popcorn, ice cream bars and bottled drinks throughout the entire evening. I would definitely attend a Disney After Hours event again and would highly recommend it. My family found it to be worth the money we paid to attend, and we felt like we experienced as many attractions as we would have during a regular park day. That being said, I would not personally visit a park earlier the same day as a Disney After Hours event. When we attended, we enjoyed a relaxing day at our Disney Resort hotel so that when we entered the park, we were refreshed and able to last until the event ended. 

    I hope this information has been helpful in making the best decision for your family. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!
