I’ve updated my Crowd Calendars to include these special events.


Never miss a beat – just enter your email address below and you'll get an email every time I publish a new post! You can also adjust the settings for a daily overview.


  1. We will be at AK on 11/13, which according to your crowd calendar is a “green” low crowd day. I logged on at 6:00 a.m. CST this morning for fastpasses and Flight of Passage, Everest and Safari were all gone, which surprised me tremendously. Would we be wise to change plans and spend the day at a different park and then purchase tickets for the AK After Hours event that night to ensure we get to ride the most popular attractions? Just shocked at the lack of FP+ availability on a day deemed as “green” Thank you so much in advance for your advice and insights.

  2. What are typical wait times in the magic kingdom in August for the event? Is it possible to get in earlier than 8 with an actual 10pm close?

  3. Sure wish Disney would release” extra magic hrs after dark” dates sooner. Hard to plan meal reservations 180 day out when dont know extra magic dates . Oh well…..

  4. Do you anticipate these events to be more crowded than in years past? We did the MK After Hours in August of last year and it was amazing! Contemplating the MK event on January 6, 2020 but I am concerned we would find it much more crowded than our previous experience. Thoughts?

  5. Since the event dates just came out for magic kingdom and animal kingdom, is it likely more will come out for the other parks in the next few weeks?

  6. Do these tickets typically go very quickly?
    We will be there in February and wondering if it’s a MUST to buy them right away?
