With a limited capacity, attractions operate with low wait times, making Disney After Hours 2023 a great opportunity to hit up rides that consistently command long lines during the day. For guests at the newly-added Epcot After Hours event, this means getting to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind without having to obtain a Virtual Queue or Lightning Lane.

Disney also treats After Hours guests to unlimited popcorn, ice cream, and sodas.

Typhoon Lagoon’s event costs $75. The other three parks range from $139-$159, depending on the park and date. Discounts are available for Walt Disney World Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members.
