    Are there any plans for Disney After Hours Events in May?

    Hello there, Marco!

    I’m so excited to hear that you’re looking into Disney After Hours events. I’ve done Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park in the past, and I loved how it felt like we had the entire theme park to ourselves. We probably went on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train 3 to 4 times at the end of the night. This was a major accomplishment, considering this is one of the most popular attractions at Magic Kingdom Park. 

    I looked up the dates of your vacation, and I cannot see the Park Hours & Info or if Disney After Hours events are available for those dates just yet. Usually, the Walt Disney World Resort theme park hours are posted anywhere between 60 to 75 days before your vacation, but this varies. I suggest rechecking the hours in a week or two. Once the information becomes available, you should see the theme park hours, Early Entry hours, Park Hopper Availability, and any attractions that are closed for refurbishment listed at the bottom of the app on your mobile device. Once the hours are posted, I’m sure we’ll find out if additional Disney After Hours ticketed events will be offered during your vacation. I know how tough it is to be patient waiting for this information, but it is worth the wait. 

    Here’s my pro tip if you do a Disney After Hours event: Make sure to arrive at the Main Entrance 30 minutes before official event check-in time since you’ll want to take advantage of the extra time in the theme park. Also, Disney After Hours events offer the perfect opportunity to snap photos in front of theme park icons, such as Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park and the Millenium Falcon at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, with lower crowds. The complimentary snacks are a nice treat too. Let me know if you have any other questions about the Disney After Hours events. 

    May the magic be with you!
