    Are there any ticket options for going to the parks only in the evenings? Like a special package for entering after 5:00pm each day?

    Alana, welcome to planDisney! Thanks for visiting us with your question. 

    Lots of folks have different reasons for visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Some love to stay at the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels, some are attraction junkies, and some visit for the food and festivals. Whatever your reason is there are usually ticket options that will fit your needs. If you like to visit the parks in the late evening only there are several nights and options introduced recently.

    If you are visiting during the warmer months Disney H2O Glow After Hours at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is available select nights from May 20 through September 2, 2023. This 3-hour event starts a little later than 5 p.m. and runs from 8-11 p.m. but gives you special goodies to snack on. The best part is you can enter the park a little earlier to get started by 6 p.m. Another one of the newest additions to nighttime special events is Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This is another event that starts later but allows you in early. The event times are from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on select nights between November 11 to December 20, 2023. If you are looking for something sooner but not during the summer and not all the way until the winter season, I would suggest Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This event runs from August 11 to November 1, 2023, on select nights. You will be allowed to enter the Magic Kingdom Park starting at 4 p.m. and the party starts at 7 p.m. and ends at midnight. You will be able to fill up your candy bag while following the trick-or-treat trails. Feel free to dress up in your favorite costume, your favorite characters will be! That’s right Mickey Mouse and his pals will wear their favorite costumes to celebrate the spooky season. 

    I hope this information helps you find that perfect night to visit. Waits for attractions are lower during these nights as well so don’t wait to get your tickets as they sell out quickly. Please don’t hesitate to visit us again at and we will be ready to help. 

    Have a magical day,

    Jeremy A.
