When you can’t wait to let go of stress and spend time enjoying life to the fullest, there’s no place on the map quite like Disney World in Orlando to do exactly that. When travelers head this way, they’re typically looking forward to experiencing magical moments alongside family and friends with good reason. Whether you’re traveling with kids or you’re a kid at heart, Disney World is a place where you can let your imagination run free. From the annual festivals and attractions to the performances, rides, and character meet-and-greets, there’s no shortage of options for incredible fun. When you’re looking to enhance the adventure with options to minimize crowds and attraction lines, you won’t want to miss out on the Disney After Hours in Orlando at Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios this year.

Enjoy Theme Park Fun at it’s Very Best

A trip to Disney World is always a treat but for those who are overwhelmed by crowds and daunting wait times, booking an After Hours event experience at Magic Kingdom or Disney’s Hollywood Studios can be exactly the right option. To enjoy After Hours, you’ll need to purchase a special event ticket in addition to a general admission ticket. You also have options to simply purchase the After Hours ticket exclusively which gives you access to the parks before it closes for the day without having to double up on any ticket costs. Either way, you’re in for some truly magical experiences ahead.

When you buy your After Hours ticket, you’ll have time before the park closes to the public to check out rides and then after the gates close, the fun really begins. Typically, Disney After Hours Orlando events last around three hours and allow guests to roam and enjoy the parks with far fewer visitors to contend with. While these events are similar to holiday spectaculars like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you’ll see custom parades swapped out for short wait times on your favorite rides and limited ticket options which means fewer crowds all the way around. There are even complimentary snacks to be enjoyed with those fan-favorite Mickey’s Ice Cream bars included.

Enjoy Disney the Way You’ve Been Looking Forward to with Family and Friends

Purchasing an After Hours event ticket at either Disney’s Hollywood Studios or Magic Kingdom gives guests access to the parks at 7:00 pm but the event itself doesn’t begin until 10:00 pm. This is a significant amount of time to enjoy the park even before the fun starts. That means time to take photos, enjoy character meet-and-greets, or try rides you’ve been looking forward to. If you’re focusing your pre-event time at Magic Kingdom, you can start your evening with the fireworks display at Cinderella’s Castle that typically ends a day of Disney fun for others!  Once the gates close for general admission ticket holders, After Hours pass holders will find ride wait times as low as 5 minutes in some cases. There’s complimentary popcorn, water, and snacks to be savored as well as memories to be made at your own preferred pace alongside family and friends.

Prices and Ticketing Dates

After Hours event ticket prices fluctuate year after year. However, in 2024, those who are looking to purchase tickets for After Hours at Magic Kingdom can estimate spending anywhere from $155 to $165 on a ticket depending on the evening they select to enjoy the fun. If you’re looking to enjoy After Hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, ticket prices will generally range from $129 to $149 this year depending on the evening. At both parks, annual pass holders may be eligible for a discount on After Hours tickets so it’s worth looking into before you purchase. Magic Kingdom will be hosting After Hours events on select evenings between January 11, 2024, and June 27, 2024, while Disney’s Hollywood Studios will welcome After Hours ticketholders on select nights between January 10, 2024, and August 29.
