    Hello, myself, my 2 kids, and my sisters family of 4 will be visiting Disneyworld on June 18-20 and were wondering if we already bought our tickets, do we have to buy additional tickets for the After Hours Magic in Animal Kingdom on the 18th?

    Hi Jayme, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It sounds like you are having a GREAT family reunion at the Walt Disney World Resort! It sounds super fun!

    If you are staying at a Disney Hotel, your family will have access to the Extra Magic Hours, a benefit offered to all Guests staying at Disney Hotels. Among many other benefits, those are really amazing to enjoy early mornings and late nights at the Theme Parks with smaller lines. To plan your trip accordingly, you can check the Extra Magic Hours schedule on this website.

    The DisneyAfter Hours, on the other hand, are Special Events that require a separate ticket admission. They are great options if you want to enjoy the Theme Parks in a different way, so, if you can fit them into your vacation's schedule, I'd highly advise you to do it!

    I'll be here hoping that you and your family have a great time together, so, please, come back if you want more advice before your trip is here!

    May the magic be with you,
