    Does WDW offer half day or partial hour tickets anymore? Many years ago I once bought tickets while at the swan for a conference that was a discounted ticket price if you go to the park after 6 or 7 pm I think...

    Hi John!

    When we arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort for a magical vacation, we always want to immediately visit a park.  Unfortunately, since we usually arrive later in the day, and there are no ticket options that are discounted for a single partial day visit, we tend to wait until the next morning to visit the parks.  Even if you enter the parks later in the day, you will still need to pay for a regular full-day ticket.  

    There are a couple of Annual Pass options that would allow you to experience some of the magic beginning later in the day, including the Epcot After 4 Annual Pass and the Water Parks After 2 Annual Pass, but unfortunately, these are only available to Florida Residents. 

    That being said, if you want to experience some of the Walt Disney World Resort magic without entering the parks, you can always explore all of the amazing Walt Disney World Resort Hotels!  With incredible dining, shopping, theming, and recreation available at each resort, you will find plenty of pixie-dusted experiences to fill your time!  We usually make a special dining reservation at one of the scrumptious dining locations in one of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to help start our magical vacation off right!  

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
