    We're headed to Disney World in March and considering purchasing Hollywood Studios After Hours tickets. If we head to the park earlier, do we have to come out to the main gate to check in at 7pm or can we just stay in the park with our magic bands?

    Howdy Amanda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! March is the perfect time of year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort; it is not too hot, and not too cold. In other words, it is practically perfect in every way!

    Disney After Hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is such a fun way to be a VIP at Disney after dark. It is a unique 3-hour experience where you and a limited number of guests can enjoy little-to-no-wait on popular attractions and Character Greetings. In other words, you get to play BIG and create magical memories all at an exclusive party!

    If you are an Annual Passholder or Disney Vacation Club Member, you are eligible for specially priced tickets. You can purchase these tickets online, at any Walt Disney World Resort ticket window, or by calling (407) 939-7795. Guests with Disney After Hours tickets are welcome to arrive at 7:00 pm. If you are already in the Park, you can grab your special armband at the Main Gate or various other stations across the Park. These individual bands serve as your “ticket” to the event, letting everyone know that you are a VIP!

    Have a Magical time!
