    I have purchased 5 day tickets with park hopper. I saw Disney after hours option. Would you suggest only purchasing 4 day tickets and then using this after hour option as my 5th day? We will be arriving January 12-18....interested in this January 17

    Hi Theresa, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question. 

    The Disney After Hours events really are a great way to see and do even more in a day at Walt Disney World Resort, so I can understand why you’d want to attend one of these Special Events this January!

    Because you need a Special Event Ticket in order to attend one of the Disney After Hours events in a given Theme Park, you can’t use one of your admission “days” with a regular Theme Park Ticket in order to attend. This means that, if you’ve already purchased your 5 Day Theme Park Tickets with the Park Hopper Option, you can’t use one of your days of admission towards attending one of these events. In addition, because ticket sales are typically non refundable, you can’t exchange your ticket for a 4 Day Ticket + the After Hours event, especially because that combination of tickets likely costs more than what you already purchased. 

    If you want to get a better sense of what your options are, I highly recommend that you contact Walt Disney World Resort by phone in order to “untangle” your vacation plans. They’ll let you know whether you can change any of your ticket options if you’ve already purchased Theme Park Tickets. You can also visit Guest Relations at any Theme Park or Disney Springs once you’ve arrived to start your vacation.

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
