    We are staying at Shades of Green. I just saw that there is a ticketed extra hour event going on during our stay in January 2023. Does this mean there will be no free after hours perk during our stay? Thank you in advance.

    Hey Howdy Hey Michelle and welcome to planDisney!

    One of the huge benefits Guests had that were staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villas and other qualifying resorts were Extended Evening Hours on select evenings in the parks. There were so many attractions you could get to with reduced crowd levels as well as walking through the parks with lower crowd levels offered rare photo opportunities. Thank you for your question on Extended Evening Hours for 2023, let's see if we can decrypt this message. 

    So you are right, recently Disney announced the return of Disney After Hours Events in Disney's Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom on select nights early in 2023. This paired with no direct communication on the status of Extended Evening Hours leaves us all in limbo. Without official word from Disney, I honestly cannot say if the Extended Evening Hour benefit will be there in 2023 or not. You can hear rumors abound on social media both ways but until we hear the official word from Disney, we all are anxiously holding our collective breaths. Make sure to keep checking back on Disney Parks Blog for any updates on the status of your upcoming trip. 

    One tip you might want to consider going forward is with your planned park days. If you feel that you are not going to get all you can out of a day where the park may be closed early for the After Hours Event, you might want to consider moving your park days around if you do not have the Park Hopper option. 

    Fingers crossed that we hear something soon on the status of 2023 Extended Evening Hours. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help! 

    Have a Magical Day,
