I was given tickets to attend this event by Walt Disney World, however all opinions are my own.
Walt Disney World Has mastered maximizing value and generating attendance year round. Festivals now populate nearly the entire year at Epcot and Magic Kingdom offers extra ticket events during the holidays that limit the number of guests and maximize entertainment.
One of the exciting extra experiences you can buy is After Hours events. Formerly, this was only an option at Magic Kingdom, but now Disney World After Hours events include Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Both parks have their own distinct advantages for visiting one of these events.
They feature the two newest lands based on the worlds of Toy Story and Avatar. They also have some of Disney World’s most popular thrill rides. A three hour limited attendance event works well in these parks, which are typically less demanding of your time, but have commonly long waits. In short, you can get a full day of fun in with only a few hours to play. To buy tickets visit https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/after-hours/
At Animal Kingdom, you can sit an After Hours event to enjoy multiple “walk-on” opportunities to ride Flight of Passage in Pandora, not to mention experience the bioluminescent surroundings and have an equally easy time getting on the Na’vi River Journey.
This event runs from 8:30 to 11:30 on select Tuesdays and Wednesdays from this December to April 2019. Admission is allowed as early as 7:00 and you can enjoy most of the attractions without crowds around. There is also special nighttime entertainment.
Tickets are the same for adults and children. Advance ticket purchases are $125 as opposed to $129 if you purchase at the gate. Annual Passholders only have to pay $95 per ticket. Despite it’s size, Animal Kingdom is widely viewed by Disney Fans as a half day park. Without Flight of Passage, You can do a quick run-through of the park in only a few hours, That’s not to say a full day is boring or impractical. However, an after hours event, such as this, with limited attendance, really does pack a lot of value. There are even refreshments included in the price, like popcorn, ice cream, and beverages.
Like Magic Kingdom, and now Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios offers the After Hours event as well. Ticket Prices are the same across the board, only the experience is very different. Hollywood Studios is the smallest Disney World theme park. However, it does pack thrills. This is the park for Rockin’ Rollercoaster, Twilight Zone Tour of Terror, Star Tours and the three major Toy Story Land Attractions. All of which are open during the event.
Like Animal Kingdom After Hours, Hollywood Studios will operate this event through to April 2019. However, these events will only take place on select Saturdays. The party hours will be from 8:30 to 11:30 until March 9. After which the event hours will change to 9:00-Midnight.
In addition to the exciting thrill rides and the complimentary (or included) refreshments, Hollywood Studios will also keep the Star Wars Launch Bay open for character meet and greets. Mickey, Minnie, Olaf and Toy Story Land pals will also be in attendance.
With After Hours you all get to have as much Popcorn, Drinks, Popsicles, and Mickey Ice Cream sandwiches as you want! So what are you waiting for, we did After Hours as a date night which was a lot of fun, however this event is great for the whole family!
