If you have ever stayed in a Disney resort hotel, you are familiar with the extra benefits that come with doing that, such as having access to Extra Magic Hours. Extra Magic Hours allow a Disney Resort guest into the park for an additional extended time before or after other guests staying offsite, making it an added free bonus to staying onsite when you visit Walt Disney World.

However, Disney has just changed the game with an announcement that a new paid after hours event called “Disney After Hours” will be available for purchase.

With “Disney After Hours,” guests buy a ticket and get access to The Magic Kingdom for three hours after the park closes, including select attractions and meet & greets.

Tickets go on sale April 6th for select dates in April and May only. Dates of the events are April 14th, 21st, 28th, and May 5th, 8th, 12th, & 19th. Tickets are $149 plus tax each for children or adults. At that price, we imagine the parks won’t be very crowded, and lines will be much shorter!

Would you be willing to pay an upcharge to stay longer in the parks?

  1. Not at that rate. Staying at the hotel is what you gains you this right. As an avid stayer of onsite properties; I look forward to these extra “hotel guest” only times with short lines. I am apposed to others being able to buy there way in.

  2. I read somewhere else this is on non EMH days, so EMH will continue as usual. And this is only on select dates in April and May, on Thursdays 3 times in April and 3 times on Thursdays also with one Saturday. And this is for anybody, I guess non resort guests as well as resort guests if they want to pay the extra money, but that would be dumb as sometimes EMH are open as late as 2 am, which is how long this Disney After hours lasts to.

  3. So… does that mean Extra Magic Hours benefit is now gone? Or is this for people who are not staying on property?
