Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom to Host Disney After Hours Events

Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom to Host After Hours Events The DIS TSL-Night

One of the Walt Disney World Resort’s popular nighttime events is expanding beyond just the Magic Kingdom and into two additional parks. Disney has announced that the separately ticketed Disney After Hours will also take place on select nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Disney After Hours allows guests to experience a Disney Park for 3 hours after park close. Admission — which is separate from a regular daytime park ticket — also entitles guests to ice cream, popcorn, and select beverages. After Hours guests can arrive as early as 7 pm, giving them an opportunity to enjoy the park before the event’s official start.

Event tickets cost $129 plus tax for day-of purchases, $125 plus tax for advanced purchases; Disney Vacation Club members and Annual Passholders will only need to pay $95 plus tax.

Below are descriptions and dates as announced by Disney:
