Disney After Hours added for Winter 2018

Disney After Hours events added for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom

The hard ticket event at the Magic Kingdom known as “Disney After Hours” has been extended for Winter 2018 dates.  Here’s the details:

The cost of Disney After Hours will increase from $119 to $125 per person for ages 3 and up.  Disney Vacation Club members and Annual Passholders do receive a discount.

With this offering, you may enter the park as early as 7pm.  This is NOT to be confused with Extra Magic Hours, which are a free on-site hotel perk.  While Disney After Hours has an additional cost, the benefit is that there is no wait for rides for the duration of the event.

The dates:

  • 12/3: 10 p.m. – 1 a.m.
  • 12/10: 10 p.m. – 1 a.m.
  • 1/7: 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
  • 1/17: 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
  • 1/24: 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
  • 1/28: 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
  • 2/7: 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
  • 2/14: 9 p.m. – 12 a.m.
  • 2/28: 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
  • 3/7: 9 p.m. – 12 a.m.

I’ve added these dates to the appropriate Crowd Calendars.

To book this offering, call 407-827-7185 or Visit the Walt Disney World website.

Disney After Hours at the Magic Kingdom. Is it worth it?

  1. Hi Kenny,
    Will the rides be the same as the ones listed on your post from last year?
    The My Disney website just lists a few and then says “and much more”

  2. Are these the dates for winter 2019 or last year’s dates? Headline says winter 2018. Curious because I went last year and am waiting for new dates to go again. It is so worth the extra money.

  3. Hi Kenny,
    I was planning on an all-day ticket at MK on Jan 24. It is me, my husband, and 8 yr old. This opens up a new option. I could change plans and do something like disney springs during the day, then go to MK around 6:30 for a night full of rides. Or, I could stick with MK all day. It will be wintertime – I’ve been to Disney in January before and there were really no issues with crowds at all. So is this ticketed event worth it then? It would be a lot of money for just three hours, and if the weather is super cold or rainy, then it’s probably a no-go and we’ve lost that money. With all day MK we would at least have some extra time in the case of bad weather. I’m torn. Thoughts?

  4. This is an awesome event! If you ever get the chance, do it! We did it in February and everything is literally walk-up. Waited about 10-12 minutes for 7D. Bottled water, Powerade, Mickey Ice Cream bars, and popcorn are included and it’s all you want. Will definitely do it again when I am back in February.
