Disney After Hours events are such a hit among Disney fans that we wanted to share the latest news with you: new dates have just been announced for both Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

In case you aren’t familiar with Disney After Hours events, these evening events are your opportunity to experience the magic of a Disney theme park for three hours after regular park hours, which means little wait for attractions, experiences and character greetings. You can even enter the park early, starting at 7 p.m. on your event night, before Disney After Hours begins. Ice cream novelties, popcorn and select beverages are also included in your Disney After Hours admission once the party starts.

At Magic Kingdom Park, guests can expect little wait at 25 plus attractions and experiences, including favorites like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, Space Mountain and many more. 

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, guests can enjoy the best the park has to offer at night, including the resplendent Tree of Life Awakenings, adventures within Pandora – The World of Avatar and more.

  • Will there be a similar event at Disneyland? And if so when will tickets be going on sale?

  • Dennise, they said three hours after park closes which according to the website for Jan 6, 2020 for example is 8pm. I think this would last till 11pm on that night but they let you get one hour before park closes (so you could ride any rides not open during the late night event in that one hour before the actual event starts).

  • what time does it end ?
