Disney After Hours - Enjoy Disney Fun Without The Crowds

Published on May 23, 2019 by SarahE

So you want to avoid crowds? And see Disney Parks when they are quiet? Then Disney After Hours is just the ticket for you.

On select nights throughout the year, Disney offer separate ticketed evenings at Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. The Disney After Hours events are open to hugely limited numbers.

This means you get to literally walk on to rides with no wait, or at the very most a few minutes wait. Stroll around almost deserted areas, enjoy all the parks have to offer without being shoulder to shoulder with others.

You get to enter your chosen park at 7pm, then you'll get an additional 3 hours after the official park close time when non-event holders have left the park.

Not only do you get the parks without the crowds, you get snacks and treats too. Unlimited ice cream, popcorn and select beverages are included for the whole evening.

Orlando Vacation Home Quote

Meet The Author
Our Florida journey began over 2 decades ago when we were searching for somewhere warm for winters. We discovered Florida was the perfect choice. We started spending every winter there and absolutely loved it. Orlando quickly became our permanent ‘winter home’. We were true Snowbirds! We decided to make our commitment a little more concrete in 2005 and bought our first vacation home – Serendipity at Indian Creek. We soon discovered we LOVED being in the hospitality world, so we decided to expand a little. We purchased Sleepy Hollow in 2010. Five years later we came across Serenity Lake House in 2015 and just had to have it to complete our portfolio. We now spend half the year on Disney’s doorstep in Orlando,. The rest of the time we're either in our second home in Scotland overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch, or enjoying time with family in Cyprus. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it? Ours is served with Pixie Dust on top :)
