    If the park I am attending has Disney After Hours that night, and we are not buying tickets for that, when will we be required to leave the park?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tara! Are you getting excited for your trip to Walt Disney World Resort next month? I know I would be! 

    Disney After Hours is a ticketed event where guests can enjoy the magic of the theme parks with significantly fewer guests inside. These events are great for people who are attractions fanatics and want to ride as much as they can as many times as possible! With their ticket, guests can stay in a park for three hours after it closes to day guests. If you don't have a ticket, no need to worry because you can still stay until the posted closing time. For example, there's a Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park during your stay at Walt Disney World Resort. You'll be able to stay in the park until it closes at 9 p.m., but guests with a ticket to the event can enjoy more than 25 attractions and Character Greetings until the clock strikes midnight and Cinderella's footmen turn back into mice! These events are so popular with guests that they've been added at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom as well. 

    I haven't had a chance to experience a Disney After Hours event yet, but it's on my Walt Disney World Resort bucket list. My friend Julie went to one of these events at Magic Kingdom Park recently and she has an amazing picture of herself in front of Cinderella Castle without another person in sight. What an amazing memory!

    Have a magical day, Tara!
