Disney After Hours returning at lower price

Disney After Hours events added for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom add-on, extra cost event that was known as “Disney After Hours will return soon atca lower price.
Disney After Hours originally launched at a price point of $149 per person. It was not widely received, mostly due to the high cost. It offered guests the ability to take part in most Magic Kingdom attractions with no waiting, as well as unlimited snacks, like Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars.
The new version of Disney After Hours will now cost $119 per person for anyone age 3 and up.

The dates for this new version will be January 20 and 27, February 2, 9 and 16, and March 2 and 9 2017. The park will be open from 7pm to 10pm only for guests who purchase this add on. It continues to offer the unlimited ice cream bars and beverages.

Disney World will continue to offer Extra Magic Hours to its onsite hotel guests. Disney After Hours will take place on non Extra Magic Hour nights.

  1. I have done this with an annual pass. If you are all about the rides…it is worth it. You can literally get them all with walking on. I have a picture with my granddaughter and we look like we rented out Its a Small World for ouselves!!

  2. Hey Kenny! Hope you can help me with this. Planning on doing this event 2/2 with my two girls yay! (hubby staying at the hotel boo!) My younger one is my wild card and may not make it to 11:00. We are staying at the Poly so if I had to send my youngest back with my husband, where could I meet my husband to hand off the kid? LOL
    Can he take the monorail and meet us somewhere close to the entrance?
    Thanks for all you do!!!

      Space Mountain
      Splash Mountain

  3. I investigated further on Disney’s website and discovered that on the Friday night dates (including January 27th) the extra hours are actually from 9:00pm-12;00am. Now to decide what to do . . .

  4. Currently, on Disney’s website (and on Character Locator), the Magic Kingdom’s park hours for January 27th are listed as 9:00am-9:00pm with EMH from 8:00am-9:00am, so how would these extra hours work? I hope they will not be cutting the park hours for this as I have had my ADR for a long time and based on this schedule.

  5. I can’t believe that I am even considering this, but once I found out that there was an AP/DVC discounted price of $89, it certainly has me mulling it over for my Jan. trip.

  6. That’s $595 plus tax for my family of 5 for 3 hours… I feel like I could buy a lot of Mickey bars for that and just wake up early to rope drop with low crowds on a regular day. I’m not sure I see the limited time being worth the $$$

  7. I probably wouldn’t pay for that on top of a regular trip cost. I like the idea of an empty park, but I feel like they are taking park hours away that I thought I paid for with an AP and asking me to buy those hours back at a higher rate.

  8. Just realized Space mountain was open for us but I don’t see it on this list. I hope it will be open for those who do it.

  9. We were “pixie dusted” these last April. It was absolutely awesome to have the park almost to yourself and we really enjoyed it but $119 each for a family of 4 is still expensive. I would love to do it again but would have to think long and hard about spending that much money.

  10. It was so amazing when we did it on our last trip in April/May that we did it a second time on the same trip!! We loved loved loved it!! The pictures I have are amazing!!!! We would do this and so sad it’s not this month!!

  11. If it is offered when we go, we would definitely consider it. We are a family of night owls. Do you know if there will be any AP or DVC discounts offered? Thanks

  12. We did one of these when they offered them before. It was awesome. Like having the park all to yourself. Truly empty. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
