    We are going to WDW December 18 (7 days) and I was curious if any of the parks ever have the after-hours events (aside from the Christmas Party) during this time? Thank you for your time!

    Hi, Shannon!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The holiday season is one of my favorite times to visit the Walt Disney World Resort.  Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit quite like seeing Cinderella Castle transformed into a glittering ice palace during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  I also love attending a beautifully moving performance of the Candlelight Processional at Epcot.

    Last year, I visited the Walt Disney World Resort the week after Thanksgiving.  In addition to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, I do remember that there were also some Disney After Hours events held at Magic Kingdom Park during that week.  Disney After Hours events have become very popular.  Who wouldn't love to experience some of their favorite attractions with little-to-no wait time?  Currently, Disney After Hours dates are listed through the early fall, and these event schedules tend to be released only a few months in advance.  I would suggest you keep checking the Walt Disney World website to see if additional dates are added for the holiday season.  The Disney Parks Blog is also a great source of information regarding Walt Disney World Resort events.

    Wishing you a magical holiday vacation!
