New After Hours Events coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios 1

Disney After Hours events have been such a huge hit among Disney fans and we wanted to share this good news with you first: not only are more event nights set for Magic Kingdom Park, but for the first time, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom will join in on the fun!

If you haven’t experienced one of these exclusive events yet,  After Hours events give you a chance to experiencea a Disney theme park for three hours after regular park hours.  That means means much shorter waits for  attractions, experiences and character greetings! The perks don’t end there though, a ticket to an After Hours event allows you to enter the Park at 7 p.m. on your event night – several hours before Disney After Hours begins. Ice cream, popcorn and select beverages are also included in your Disney After Hours admission, which is a separately priced ticket from daytime park admission.

Here’s what to expect at each park:

Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Toy Story Land is home to some of the hottest attractions around right now (and hardest to find FastPasses too). That means long lines and lots of time spent waiting, unless you’re at an After Hours Event.  Then you’ll be able to experience Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirming Saucers and Toy Story Midway Mania, with almost no wait at all. Rockin’ Roller Coaster, Tower of Terror and other attractions will also be available. If hunger strikes, select quick-service locations will also stay open for purchases throughout the night. Event nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be: Dec. 8, 15 and 22, 2018; and Jan. 5, 12 and 19, 2019; Feb. 2, 9 and 16, 2019; March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2019; and April 6 and 13, 2019.

Enjoy all of the best of  Disney’s Animal Kingdom without all of the wait! See the emotional Tree of Life Awakenings, explore Pandora – The World of Avatar, take on a Yeti and more. Like Hollywood Studios, certain quick-service locations will remain open throughout the night to satisfy those late night cravings. Dates at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are: Dec. 4, 12 and 18, 2018; and Jan. 8, 16, 22 and 31, 2019; and Feb. 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 26, 2019; and March 5, 20 and 27, 2019; and April 3, 2019.
