    I have a park reservation for animal kingdom during the day. I then purchased a special after hours hard ticket for Hollywood studios. Do I need an additional park reservation for Hollywood studios?

    Hey there, hi there, Dana! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with such a great question.

    Eeeeek! Dana, I am SO excited to hear that you will be enjoying Disney After Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios on your upcoming vacation! These three-hour events are some of my favorite Disney events, and I am so happy they are back. Extra time in the park, short wait times and complimentary snacks?! Sign me up! I am thrilled that you are signed up, so let's tie up your loose planning ends so you can sit back, relax and start your pixie-dusted countdown. 

    I think you will be happy to hear that no Theme Park Pass reservation is required to enter Disney's Hollywood Studios for Disney After Hours. In fact, although the event does not begin until 9:30 p.m., you will be able to enter Hollywood Studios with just your event ticket as early as 7:00 p.m. That will give you even more time for extra magic, and when it comes to magic, more is always better!

    Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the snack carts located throughout Hollywood Studios during the event to load up on complimentary ice cream treats, popcorn and bottled beverages. The perfect midnight snacks!

    Dana, I think your plan is practically perfect in every way! Since Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park typically opens earlier than the other parks, you can get an early start, take a midday rest break or nap (Disney naps are the best naps!) and still have plenty of time to get to Hollywood Studios for your late night in the park. BEST. DAY. EVER!

    I hope this was helpful, Dana, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time full of fun, early mornings and late nights at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way.

    You've got a friend in me,
