    When 2024 packages come out in a few months, will after hours dates also be announced? We are looking at February 2024 and how many days of park tickets we purchase will depend on if we can take advantage of an after hours event while we are there.

    Hi Ricki, 

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian!

    The Disney After Hours evenings are a great way to get even more out of your Disney Day, so I’m thrilled that you’re thinking of attending some of them during your visit to Walt Disney World Resort next February. I got to attend one of these special evenings at Magic Kingdom Park during my last trip and it was so much fun to bounce from attraction to attraction with virtually no wait! And, as a self-confessed popcorn addict, being able to get my fill (and then some) of one of my favourite Disney treats was a pretty awesome perk, too.

    Unfortunately, I don’t know when next year’s Disney After Hours dates will be released, or even if these special evenings will be offered at all. Based on last year’s experience, dates as of January were announced in late September, so really only a few months beforehand. 

    What I would recommend, especially if your dates aren’t that flexible or if you have your heart set on staying in a specific Disney Resorts Collection hotel, is that you make a “room only” reservation and then add your Theme Park Tickets to your reservation later, if and when any Disney After Hours dates are released for your vacation dates. If you don’t hear anything by, say, October, then I’d go ahead and purchase your Theme Park Tickets with the assumption that these special evenings won’t be taking place during your upcoming vacation. And don't forget to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the most up-to-date information about any and all events that may be taking place at the Disney Parks. 

    I hope my answer helps guide you a bit for planning your 2024 vacation; I’m truly sorry that I wasn’t able to give you more definitive information! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
