    We purchased the after hours event for Magic on a day that we have a Hollywood Studio's park reservation. Because of the park hopper we made dinner reservations at Magic. Can we still hop to Magic for our dinner reservation?

    Hi Sara! Great choice on selecting the Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park! The After Hours events are so much fun for so many reasons! The After Hours events have significantly reduced attendance which means reduced wait times for attractions! Additionally, you’ll be able to pick up ice cream treats, popcorn, and select beverages throughout the park as part of your admission!

    Now, let’s break down your plans to make sure we’ve got a “check” in all the right boxes! Your Disney Day is going to start at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! You’ll need to make sure that you have a valid theme park ticket as well as a Disney Park Pass reservation for that park. Next, you’d like to park hop to Magic Kingdom Park. Park hopping begins at 2:00 PM. To park hop, you’ll need to make sure that you’ve purchased a Park Hopper ticket. You do not need a Disney Park Pass reservation for the park you’re hopping to (in your case, Magic Kingdom Park). Keep in mind that there is complimentary transportation from park to park!

    Sara, I’m not sure what time your dinner reservation is for at Magic Kingdom Park, but I want to share some advice. Your Disney After Hours event ticket for Magic Kingdom Park will admit you as early as 7:00 PM! That’s right! Even though the event doesn’t officially begin until 10:00 PM, you can enter as early as 7:00 PM! If your dining reservation is later than 7:00 PM, you might consider passing on the Park Hopper ticket and entering the park at 7:00 PM. The choice is yours!

    I hope this is helpful information as you continue dreaming of your late night in Magic Kingdom Park!

    Happy Planning!
