    Can you give me more information on Disney After Hours in Animal Kingdom? Does it include food for dinner or just snacks? Do we need to make fast passes or can we ride anything without waits? Any info. appreciated. We will be there Sept. 3 for this event.

    Hey there, Joan,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's always a pleasure when I can assist a fellow Georgian!

    My family attended Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park in May and thoroughly enjoyed the entire event. We found Disney After Hours to be a great way to experience several of our favorite attractions at night with a limited number of Guests in the park. In September, Disney After Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park will take place from 9:00 p.m. to midnight; however, Guests can enter the park beginning at 7:00 p.m. with their Special Event ticket. You will have access to Character Greetings, amazing entertainment options and popular attractions during this nighttime event. 

    Complimentary ice cream bars, popcorn and select bottled drinks are included with the cost of admission. Guests can purchase additional menu items from select dining locations in the park. Disney FastPass+ service is not available during Disney After Hours. On the night we attended, we experienced minimal waits on a few attractions, but we found that most attractions did not have a wait at all. I would not hesitate to attend Disney After Hours again in the future. It's such a fun event!

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Joan. Let us know if you have any additional questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!
