    I will be at the Magic Kingdom on Feb 16th, which is one of the days for Disney after Hours. Do I have to purchase an Disney After Hour tickets to be in the MK park to watch the firework show inside the park?”

    Hi Lori!

    Looks like your magical vacation is right around the corner! I know you're probably counting the days until you're at Walt Disney World Resort, having the time of your life.

    No need to worry about missing Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park on the day that you visit. While the park "closes" at 8pm for an after-hours event, that's also the start time for the fireworks. Day guests can enjoy the 8pm firework show before making their way out of the park and back to their resorts.

    Disney After Hours is a special ticketed event on select nights this spring. Guests attending will enjoy three late-night hours in Magic Kingdom Park with smaller crowds, shorter wait times and complimentary popcorn, ice cream and bottled (non-alcoholic) drinks! Disney After Hours guests are allowed to enter the park at 7pm, and will be given wristbands when they check in. After 8pm, day guests filter out and After Hours guests get to stay in the park and enjoy 25 popular attractions and Character Greetings. A limited amount of tickets are sold for each event, so guests will feel like they have the park to themselves!

    I hope you have an amazing vacation and make lots of magical memories! - Diane W.
