    I purchased ticket admissions for the EPCOT After Hours event. At 7pm do I need to return to the front turnstiles to get our wrists tags, or will there be a Guest Services kiosk that I can check in within the park?

    Hi there, Gerald!

    Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you for using our team of panelists for advice to make the most of your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We are guests, just like you, who love all types of Disney vacations - from theme parks to cruise ships to adventures all over the world, and we love to share our personal experiences to help you add a bit of magic to your visit!

    I'm thrilled to hEAR you'll be enjoying Disney After Hours at Epcot during your visit in March. I personally love the After Hours events because of the smaller crowds and shorter wait times for my favorite attractions. (Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is where you'd find me most of the night!) The specially-ticketed event will also feature unique entertainment offerings, Character Greetings, and more. Wondering what you'll snack on during the event? No need to worry - you'll be provided complimentary ice cream, popcorn, and select beverages throughout the evening. If you want to treat yourself to a  Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar every hour - it's your chance to indulge!

    The After Hours event officially begins at 10 PM, but ticket holders can enter the theme park as early as 7 PM to enjoy attractions or maybe catch the new and fabulous Luminous The Symphony of Us fireworks!

    From what I've been told, there is not a dedicated check-in kiosk within the park, but there should be a check-in area at both the Main Entrance and the International Gateway Entrance. If you will already be a day guest at EPCOT, I encourage you to ask a Cast Member at Guest Relations or a member of the Guest Experience Team (look for the bright blue umbrellas!) if any other check-in options have been added for the event. These policies and procedures are always subject to change, even up to the day of the event, so if they've found a way to make the crowd flow smoother they will typically implement it. 

    I hope you have the most amazing evening enjoying the wonder and awesomeness of EPCOT!
