    We’re hoping the After Hours events con’t into summer&trying to plan ahead: do we need regular admission+AH ticket in order to attend, or is just the AH tix enough to get in @7? Also, are the Early Morning events gone? Don’t see them listed at all!

    Hi there, Karen! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the Disney After Hours events! I personally think they are an excellent way to maximize your time in the parks while also being treated to all the popcorn and ice cream you can eat! As you may already know, Disney After Hours is now being offered at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. 

    To answer your initial question, you do not need Walt Disney World theme park tickets in order to attend the After Hours events. If you intend on entering the park at 7:00pm, you will only be required to have tickets for the After Hours event you are attending. If you would prefer to enjoy some time in the parks earlier than 7:00pm, you would have to purchase theme park admission in addition to your After Hours event tickets.  

    The Early Morning Magic events are definitively still going on! Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland allows Guests the chance to experience seven iconic Fantasyland attractions as well as an all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast. It’s being offered on select Sundays and Tuesday now through March 2019. Disney Early Morning Magic- Toy Story Land lets Guests “play big” and experience all the amazing attractions Andy’s backyard has to offer. In addition, Guests will be treated to a delicious breakfast consisting of continental offerings and a main dish. This experience is being offered select Mondays and Wednesdays now through April 2019. 

    It's tough to choose between all of these experiences but hopefully this provides a bit more information!
