Yesterday we made an announcement about a new, separate ticketed series of “After Dark” events available to purchase on April 6, for select nights at Magic Kingdom Park for $149 per ticket. There weren’t very many details released, and it left all of us with so very many questions about this new ticketed event. Luckily, today Disney has released some more information about these events on their website, so I would like to share the new details with you all!

More Magic in Less Time

Treat yourself to a classic Magic Kingdom experience—complete with select attractions, ice cream novelties and more.By purchasing a ticket to Disney After Hours, you can make the most of a truly magical occasion when Magic Kingdom park lets you in for the last few hours of the day… and then stays open for 3 extra hours at night, just for Guests of the event!

This is your chance to fit in even more theme park fun, all while enjoying many of the most popular attractions and Character Greetings around—such as:

  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Disney Princess Greetings at Princess Fairytale Hall
  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Space Mountain
  • And much, much more!

Ice Cream Novelties & Select Beverages Included!
In the midst of the laughs and thrills, be sure to chill out with ice cream novelties and select bottled beverages—included with the cost of admission—available at carts stationed through the park. In addition, you can also purchase select menu items at Casey’s Corner and STARBUCKS® Coffee and specialty beverages from Main Street Bakery.

And remember: admission is limited to only a select number of Guests. Be sure to purchase your tickets today!

One thought on “More details available for Magic Kingdom’s “After Hours” events

  1. What makes me nervous is, we will be at MK on 5/19 before heading on our cruise and now I’m worried that this will increase the crowd level on an otherwise good touring day because people will want to attend this “special” event. But I won’t be adding another $150 per person to our already expensive trip just for this. If you know the tricks to touring the parks, you don’t need these extra hours to ride those rides imo. 🙂
