    If I have tickets for Villians After Hours I can get into Magic Kingdom starting at 7pm. Can I get into the park earlier for a Magic Kingdom ADR - at say 6pm? Or will I not be allowed in the park until 7pm?

    Hello, Paula!

    Welcome BACK to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's so great to help you again!

    The Disney After Hours are now my favorite Special Events at the Walt Disney World Resort. I simply love them! They offer an entirely new perspective on Theme Parks, so they're fantastic both for seasoned visitors who want new experiences and first-time Guests who wish to make the most of every Theme Park they visit! 

    To enjoy an early dinner reservation that starts before 7 p.m., you will have to use a regular Theme Park ticket. In that case, you may want to enter Magic Kingdom Park before 6 p.m., since the classic admission ticket will allow you to begin as soon as it opens in the morning. 

    If you want to use only your Disney Villains After Hours ticket on that day, it's wise to book a dining reservation inside Magic Kingdom Park after 7 p.m. or enjoy dinner at a Disney Resort Hotel. You will find many fantastic options at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Disney's Contemporary Resort

    My suggestion would be the fantastic Grand Floridian Cafe. It's a hidden gem, and it super close to the boat dock at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It's perfect for an early dinner! 

    I hope that these tips help you create a spooktacular night out, Paula! If more questions come up before your trip is here, please, don't hesitate to come back. We're here to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
