    If we purchase After Hours tickets can we use that ticket without using one of our park days if we didn’t go to a park during the day? Or is park admission required with an After Hours ticket?

    Hi there, Erika!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! It sounds like you're planning an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. How exciting!

    Disney After Hours is a great way to experience many of the most popular attractions at night with a limited number of Guests in the park. I'm pleased to tell you that you will only need your special event ticket in order to gain entry into the park during the Disney After Hours event. You do not need a Disney After Hours ticket and a regular theme park ticket in order to do so. I'm anxiously awaiting dates to be released for this summer and plan to enjoy a day at our Disney Resort hotel pool before attending Disney After Hours. Our plan is to take it easy that day so we can take full advantage of that extra time in the park at night. Currently, Guests with a Disney After Hours ticket can enter the park at 7:00 p.m.; however, event times may vary depending on the date.

    If you've not done so already, be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to manage your vacation plans, view attraction wait times and book FastPass+ selections and dining reservations while on the go.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Erika. Let us know if you have any new questions as you continue to plan a magical trip!
