    Hey Nimmy! just had a quick question. If I purchase a regular Epcot day ticket, am I able to stay for late night hours as well, or would I also need to purchase a separate disney after hours ticket too? Thanks!

    Hello again Caroline! 

    We love seeing familiar faces here at planDisney! 

    Disney After Hours at EPCOT is a great way to enjoy the Park with minimal wait and unlimited popcorn! This is a specially ticketed event that lets guests enter the Park as early as 7 pm and then stay and explore till 1 am! The official event start time is 10 pm. EPCOT usually closes at 9 pm which means that guests who do not have a special ticket as noted by wristbands that will be distributed to them at entry will be gently escorted to the exits at Park closing. 

    My recommendation is that instead of spending the day at EPCOT with a standard ticket, just purchase the Disney After Hours Ticket as it will allow you to experience so many attractions in the Park, including Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind with minimal wait while including popcorn, ice cream and bottled drinks that can be grabbed for no additional cost from carts around the Park. If you arrive at 7 pm you still have a chance to enjoy at dusk the joys of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival and World Showcase which will not be operating during the After Hours Event.  However, I will not stop you from enjoying a fully ticketed day at EPCOT followed by this specially ticketed event. Make sure to eat dinner before the event as well as dining options will be limited. Don't forget to wear good footwear and take breaks so that you can truly shut down the park in style. 

    I hope this helps and you have a fabulous time! Remember, you are the magic!

    Happy Planning!
