Disney After Hours Event Is Expanding to EPCOT & More

Disney After Hours Event Is Expanding to EPCOT & More disney-after-hours-epcot

Walt Disney World has announced that the popular Disney After Hours event is expanding to EPCOT this spring!

In case you’ve never heard of Disney After Hours, it’s a specially ticketed event that takes place after the theme park(s) close to the general public for the evening. The event gives ticketholders access to some of their favorite attractions. Your event ticket also allows you early entry into the theme park on the evening of the event.

One of the best parts about Disney After Hours is that the number of tickets sold for these events is limited, which translates into fewer guests in the park and lower wait times for some of your favorite attractions, such as Frozen Ever After, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT.

As always with Disney After Hours, ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select beverages are all included in the cost of this ticketed event and are available at carts throughout the park.

In addition to EPCOT being added to Disney After Hours, it was also announced that Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is set to reopen this spring, and along with that, H2O Glow After Hours is returning for dates (listed below) beginning May 20 going through September 2, 2023.
