    Must you have a park ticket in addition to an after hours ticket or can you purchase the after hours ticket alone and just go to the park at 7:00pm for the evening?

    Hi, Nancy! It is great to have you back here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I guess you'll be happy to know that you only need a Disney After Hours ticket to enter the Theme Parks at 7 p.m. on the night of the event. Isn't it amazing?

    I did precisely that when I attended Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park last year and I had a BLAST. I got to the Theme Park right in time to do the shopping I had to do and watch Happily Ever After before the event started. I loved every bit of it!

    To maximize my time at Magic Kingdom Park, I had dinner at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa before heading for the Monorail, and I think it was a great strategic choice. Maybe it is a good option for you, too!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel for our help once again. We look forward to providing you with further assistance or fun ideas to make your dreams come true at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    May the magic be with you,
