Walt Disney World has expanded its Disney After Hours events to now include Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom! This is the first time both Disney parks will join in the after hours fun.
Disney After Hours events take place for three hours after a Disney theme park’s regular hours. This allows guests to experience little-to-no wait times, character greetings and much more. Guests can enter the park as early as 7 p.m. before Disney After Hours begins to experience even more magic.
Here’s what you can expect at each park:
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Perhaps the most exciting thing about After Hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is that you will be able to enjoy the newly opened Toy Story Land and all its attractions including Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers and Toy Story Mania! with way less crowds. In addition, take advantage of other areas and rides like Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster, Tower of Terror and more. Event nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be Dec. 8, 15, and 22, 2018 ad Jan. 5, 12 and 19 2019; Feb. 2, 9 and 16, 2019; March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2019; and April 6 and 13, 2019.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
There is something even more magical about walking around Disney’s Animal Kingdom at night. During the After Hours event, guests can take in the gorgeous Tree of Life Awakenings, the many adventures in Pandora: The World of Avatar and more. Additionally, select food and beverage locations will remain open. Dates at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are: Dec. 4, 12 and 18, 2018; and Jan. 8, 16, 22 and 31, 2019; and Feb. 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 26, 2019; and March 5, 20 and 27, 2019; and April 3, 2019.
