    My husband and I am planning a July trip to Disney. We have attended hard ticketed events at MK before and have loved them! We are hoping that there will be an After Hours event while we are visiting. When does Disney announce dates for the summer?

    Hi Andrea and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Disney After Hours is a fantastic special event requiring a separate park ticket that lets you maximize your play time in the Parks with minimal wait times.  The ice cream and popcorn snacks are a welcome bonus because let's be real here, I'm all about the Disney snacks.  I have no doubt you had a great time attending Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park in the past and will be super excited to know that Disney After Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney After Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom were added to the fun in 2018!

    Dates for the summer have not been announced yet as there are still wintery dates still happening, but looking at the Disney Parks Blog for previous announcements for Disney After Hours seems to show a pattern of about a month prior to the first After Hours dates.  My best advice is to follow the Disney Parks Blog for any new announcements coming up.  My favorite way to follow them is on Facebook, but you can also find them on Twitter as well with all the magical happenings around Walt Disney World.

    Have a magical day!
