    Hi! I noticed that the Animal Kingdom After Hours event ends on May 26th. Do you think they will release any more dates? I am planning a trip that would be in the first week of June. Thanks in advance!

    Hello, Lauren,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Disney's After Hours at Animal Kingdom is an incredible experience to enjoy many of the popular attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom with little to no waits since there are a limited number of tickets sold.  I know for me that would mean riding Avatar Flight of Passage as many times as I could! I love the experience of riding on a banshee, especially the feeling of flying.  Words just can't convey how breathtaking this attraction is.  As you noted, there are not any dates scheduled for the summer.  I don't know if any will be added, so I'd encourage you to visit the event's web page as well as the Disney Parks Blog for official news and updates. 

    Did you know about the Disney Villains After Hours at the Magic Kingdom? It is a similar concept to the after hours event at the Animal Kingdom, except this one has the addition of a theme to let guests experience the Magic Kingdom with a more villainous feel about it.  Lighting and music throughout the park reflect this, and there is a stage show called Villains Unite the Night as well as a wandering fire-breathing dragon.  It is all wickedly wonderful!  

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
