Disney After Hours

Disney After Hours will let you spend more time (and money) in the Magic Kingdom this April and May.

By Seth Kubersky

Walt Disney World guests who can’t get enough of the magic can pay for extra time in the Magic Kingdom at Disney After Hours events in April and May.

Disney After Hours will be held on select dates in April and May after the Magic Kingdom’s normal operating hours. Admission will cost $149 per person (plus tax), and is not included in any other ticket or annual pass. Attendees will be allowed to enter the park at 7 p.m., and will have the place all to themselves for three hours after the park closes to regular guests.

Disney After Hours events are currently scheduled at Magic Kingdom on the following dates:

•April 14 (11 p.m.-2 a.m.)
•April 21 (11 p.m.-2 a.m.)
•April 28 (10 p.m.-1 a.m.)
•May 5 (10 p.m.-1 a.m.)
•May 8 (11 p.m.-2 a.m.)
•May 12 (11 p.m.-2 a.m.)
•May 19 (11 p.m.-2 a.m.)

During the Disney After Hours event, guests should enjoy minimal wait times for popular attractions, including Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Character meet and greets will also be available throughout the evening. Finally, guests can snack on complimentary ice cream novelties and bottled drinks from carts around the park, or purchase select items from Main Street Bakery and Casey’s Corner.

After the event, Walt Disney World transportation will continue to run for 2 hours to service resort hotel guest. Note that the Disney After Hours events do not replace Extra Magic Hours, which are still currently on Walt Disney World’s operating calendar and free for all on-site resort guests.

Tickets will be available soon through the Disney After Hours webpage, or you can call (407) 827-7185.

No, I would not pay more than a full days price for 3 hours. Disney should be very careful with its recent greed. EMH are for people who spend extra money for an average hotel room. The extras are great, transportation, and such but take away EMH from resort guests for a grossly inflated profit and people will go to Hotwire, hotels.com, and other sites to book just off property or within property at Disney Spings area hotels. I don’t believe it’s not replacing EMH as stated, and I intended to be at Disney within these dates, so I have decided because of this announcement to stay off site. Way to go bean counters you’ve successfully persuaded me!

What is going on with Disney. I will admit that the family and me love going to Disney and will continue to go there, at least every other year if not every year. But with this and the new morning Morning magic that they are starting to offer, it appears that they just want to get every dollar they can from their guests. To pay more than a day ticket for a couple of hours is crazy to ask of people who have already paid out a lot of money to enjoy the parks. What will they want to charge us for next.
