Disney After Hours Returns to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios in Early 2024

    Disney World has announced that the popular After Hours events will be returning in early 2024. Here’s the announcement:

    Calling all night owls! Disney After Hours events are returning to Walt Disney World Resort with plenty of late-night delights starting Jan. 10 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Jan. 11 at Magic Kingdom Park and Feb. 2 at EPCOT.

    Think of the happiest things you can do during your Walt Disney World visit. I bet extra time in the parks after closing would be at the top of your list… when you can explore one of our theme parks like never before – with lower wait times for attractions. That’s what you’ll get at Disney After Hours events!

    The popular separately ticketed events mean tons of Walt Disney World theme park fun. You’ll get three hours – after hours – to ride your favorite attractions, see beloved characters and refuel on unlimited, complimentary snacks!

    There’s something about Walt Disney World Resort at night that just hits differently – don’t you agree? Disney’s theme parks transform into dreamy adventures. From the sparkle of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park to the colorful spectacle of Spaceship Earth at EPCOT, nighttime can be the best time to experience magical Disney fun.

    Disney After Hours events allow a limited number of guests to enjoy Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT after they officially close for the day, offering shorter wait times to select attractions and character experiences. To cure your late-night cravings, you can indulge in ice cream novelties, popcorn and select beverages at a variety of locations throughout the park each event night – all included in the cost of the ticket.
