    I heard there was free food at After Hour events. Can you tell me about it?

    Hiya, Michael, and welcome back to planDisney!

    Oh boy, am I glad you stopped by with this question, because the Disney After Hours special-ticketed events are hands-down my favorite events to partake in at Walt Disney World Resort! I was beyond excited to hear they were returning this year, because my husband and I have been to Disney After Hours at both Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the past. Like before, the 2023 events include three extra hours in the specified theme park after the park closes to Guests for the day, but you can enter the park with your event ticket as early as 7:00 p.m. The wait times for attractions are incredibly low, if not nonexistent, due to the lack of crowds so you can fit so much more into those three hours than you might in a typical afternoon.

    Plus, Disney After Hours events include complimentary ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select bottled beverages at various snack carts throughout the park. When you arrive for a Disney After Hours event, be sure to grab an event guide to see where these carts are located, as well as a list of available attractions. If you were to ask me if a Disney After Hours event is worth it, I would answer with a resounding "YES!" Besides the snacks and lower wait times for attractions, there’s really nothing like experiencing a Walt Disney World Resort theme park with virtually no crowds. In fact, I almost felt like I had the park to myself at past events, it was so empty! I mean, the pictures in front of Cinderella Castle and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror without a drove of other Guests in the background is worth the ticket price alone, if you ask me.

    I’m sure you can tell I get a little excited about Disney After Hours, Michael, but I just know you’ll love these unique events as much as I do! I sure hope you consider purchasing a ticket for your upcoming trip, but don’t wait too long to do so since events are known to sell out. Magic Kingdom Park has Disney After Hours tickets available for dates through March 27th, and Disney's Hollywood Studios has dates through April 19th.

    I hope this information helps, Michael, but stop by again should you think of anything else. Have a wonderful trip, and we’ll see ya real soon!

    Stay magical,
