The popular separately ticketed events mean tons of Walt Disney World theme park fun. You’ll get three hours – after hours – to ride your favorite attractions, see beloved characters, and refuel on unlimited, complimentary snacks!

Disney After Hours events allow a limited number of guests to enjoy participating theme parks after they’ve officially closed for the day, offering shorter wait times to select attractions and character experiences. Attending guests can indulge in ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select beverages at a variety of locations throughout the park each event night – all included in the cost of the ticket.

Event times at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Event times at Magic Kingdom Park and at EPCOT are from 10 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. You can get a head start on making happy memories by entering the park beginning at 7 p.m. to squeeze even more joy out of your midnight merriment with family and friends.

After Hours Event Dates at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

These special nights will take place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Jan. 10 through April 10, 2024.
