    I'll be in the park with a friend but my son would like to meet me after he finishes work. Can he purchase a partial day ticket and join us after 5pm for the rest of the evening?

    Hi there, Bernadette! Welcome to planDisney! Let's dive into your question.

    At the moment, there is no option for a partial-day ticket, but I have a recommendation. On certain evenings throughout the year, select Walt Disney World Parks offer After Hours Events. This is a separately-ticketed event, so you would all need a ticket to attend. You'll typically find quieter queues at the Parks, as well as some unique tasty treats!

    These events are available on specific nights until July at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom Park, and EPCOT. You can stay at your chosen Park until approximately 1 am, giving you the feeling of a complete experience. You can even start enjoying the fun early by entering the Park at 7 pm, three hours before the official beginning of the event at 10 pm.

    Alternatively, please remember there is lots of fun to be had away from the theme parks. So much so, that planDisney created an entire podcast about 'Beyond the Theme Parks'. Please take a look and see if some other fun, such as a meal outside the Parks but still immersed in the Disney Magic, may work for you all?

    Regardless of your choice, Bernadette, I wish you, your friend and your son an enchanting experience at the Most Magical Place on Earth! If I can help with anything else, please reach out to us at planDisney.

    Have a magical day!
