    Have a ticket for Disney After Dark Hollywood Studios in March. I know we can enter the park as early as 7pm, but what If we want to make a dining reservation. Can we enter the park around 6pm to do that?

    Hi Karen, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The Disney After Hours events are AWESOME! I'm glad you have incorporated at least one of them to your upcoming trip. Make sure to leave room for the ice cream, as it is one of the great offerings included in your ticket - you can have as many Mickey Ice Cream Bars as you want! 

    You will be allowed to enter Disney's Hollywood Studios at 7:00 p.m. with a Disney After Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios ticket, but if you wish to arrive earlier, you can use a regular Theme Park ticket admission to enjoy a few attractions and a dining reservation before that time. That is a great strategy, especially if you are bringing first time visitors, as the atmosphere of the Theme Park will change a lot between the day and the night.

    It is also a great plan if you intend to enjoy attractions that will not be open during the Disney After Hours event, such as Walt Disney Presents and For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration

    If you are bringing young Guests, you may also want to include the Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple in your itinerary. This immersive experience welcomes guests 4-12 years old to learn how to use the Force and wield lightsabers as they come face-to-face with notorious Star Wars villains. Even though I'm not a mother yet, I love to watch brave Padawans train under the tutelage of the Jedi!

    If you have any more questions, please, stop by once again. We love to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
