    Do Disney resort guests have to pay the separate admission price, for the "After Dark" events at the parks? Can resort guests be in the park earlier than 7 p.m.?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Guy. I'm so pleased to hear you're planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     Disney After Hours events are such an awesome way to add some extra magic to your upcoming stay. With limited-entry, Disney After Hours includes little-to-no wait for popular attractions and Character meet-and-greets, and complimentary treats and beverages! These special events do require admission for Resort Guests and offsite Guests alike. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling (407) 939-7795. There is a bit of a discount in buying the tickets ahead of time, so I recommend booking prior to your visit. Guests with tickets for Disney After Hours may enter the theme park as early as 7:00 PM, about three hours prior to the event starting. To enter the theme park any earlier than 7:00 PM, you would need theme park admission in addition to the Disney After Hours admission. 

     Your March stay is the perfect time to visit the 2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Be sure to check out the Garden Rocks Concert Series while you're there!

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