    Do our park passes include access to the “after hours” stuff? For example, Animal Kingdom is open from 7-10, I think, on April 7 but they are selling separate tickets for this event. I’m confused about whether we can go with our existing pass?

    Hi Kathleen,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Nothing makes us happier than when a guest returns for a visit! You must be looking forward to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I love visiting in April. The flowers are stunning throughout the Resort, especially at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. I hope you're planning some time to see the lovely topiary displays and enjoy the delicious offerings at the Outdoor Kitchens. 

    When checking the Park Hours for April 7, Disney's Animal Kingdom is open to day guests from 9 A.M. until 8 P.M. In the evening the park is hosting Disney After Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park from 9 P.M. until 12 A.M.  Disney After Hours is considered a Special Event and requires a separate admission ticket. The event allows a limited number of guests to stay later in the park and enjoy attractions with lower wait times. Ice Cream, Popcorn, and Select Beverages are included with your admission. If your budget has room, I highly recommend Disney After Hours events. We have attended a few and love experiencing the park with lower crowds. 

    Kathleen, I hope this helps with your planning. I also hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions! 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
