Disney’s After Hours Event at Magic Kingdom is a limited ticket event held on select nights from June 28- September 20, 2018. You can access the park starting at 7pm, then at 10pm you will be able to enjoy 25+ attractions and character meet and greets. Popcorn, soft drinks and 5 types of Frozen novelties are complementary at select carts throughout the park between 10pm-1am. Current pricing is $119. per person over 3 years of age. Annual Pass holders and Disney Vacation Club members have access to specially priced tickets for just $89 each.

Our opinion: It is a great way to enjoy the park with your family. It’s like a VIP experience. I suggest you relax during the day, hit the resort pool for a while maybe an afternoon nap. Then have your dinner at 5-6, then head over to the park for the 7pm access. Starting around 8pm, people start lining up in front of the castle for the 9-9:30 fireworks show, followed by the “Once upon a time” Castle projection Show. So, the crowds will be more in this area, which creates less wait times at the attractions. Take advantage of the less popular rides at this time, then between 10-1am you can just walk on everything without waiting or very minimal wait time. One other tip: you can get great views of the fireworks behind the Castle!! Yes, behind the Castle, in front of “It’s a Small World” or the bridge next to “Be our Guest” restaurant or even in front of “Mickeys PhilharMagic”,  there are minimal crowds there and you can have an up front views. It can be a lot louder too, so take that in mind.
