    We have been to Micky's Very Merry Christmas Party before and were allowed in the park at 4pm. Will we be allowed in the park that early for Magic Kingdom's After Hours events?

    Hey there, Nancy!

    It looks like you'll be starting the new yEAR and decade a very magical way! A vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect way to get over the holiday blues and experience some much-needed pixie dust after the busiest time of the yEAR! 

    Nancy, I was so happy to see the news of the Disney After Hours for 2020 on the Disney Parks Blog as I have my eye on this special event for my upcoming vacation. The start times differ depending on the night you are attending, but you will be able to enter Magic Kingdom at 7:00 p.m. This will give you extra time to enjoy some of your favorite attractions before the official start time. I love that the Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom offers more than 25 attractions and complimentary popcorn, ice cream, and select beverages. My advice would be to grab an early dinner, so you'll be able to snack your way around the park during the event! 

    There's so much to look forward to on your upcoming visit, Nancy. I'm sure you can't wait to check out Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge to visit Planet Batuu. Both attractions, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will be open in January for you to experience! I've had an opportunity to explore this galactic land, and it was incredible. You'll want to come to Planet Batuu thirsty, so you can sample the blue and green milk at the Milk Stand! I thought both were good, but I'm definitely Team Green! 

    I'm so glad you stopped by with your question! Please keep us posted if you think of anything else.
