Disney After Hours events added to Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom

Disney After Hours events are coming soon to Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. After hosting numerous After Hours events at the Magic Kingdom, the addition of Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom will allow guests to experience these parks for three hours after their posted closing time.

The appeal of Disney After Hours events is minimal waits for attractions and character meet-and-greets. However, it’s worth noting that not all of the rides or attractions will be operating. Guests also enjoy ice cream, popcorn and select drinks that are included with the price of their ticket.

Guests who purchase an After Hours ticket may enter the parks beginning at 7pm. All Disney After Hours event tickets cost $125 for advance purchase and $129 for same-day purchases. Discounts are available for annual pass and DVC members. This is a separate ticket and does not include the normal admission to the theme parks.

What’s available at Hollywood Studios?

Attractions including Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers, Toy Story Mania, Rockin’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror. Other attractions may be available.

Select food and drink locations will be open during the event.
