Disney Vacation Club (DVC) offers many benefits on top of just owning rent to use for room accommodations. Guests can enjoy complimentary after-hours events. These events are only for Eligible Members and special Guests. 

In addition to entrance to this exclusive after-hours event, they can expect short-than-usual wait times, character meets, reimagined entertainment, and special treats.

Back in February, we first announced that Moonlight Magic will return this year. For 2022, Moonlight Magic will take place in three different parks this year! DVC Members can enjoy EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios! Check out the return of this event HERE.

Now, this event will extend to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

There is nothing quite like the beauty of Pandora at night. Disney’s Animal Kingdom offers the earliest park closings which makes it difficult to truly enjoy Pandora at night. Soon DVC Members can enjoy Disney’s Animal Kingdom at night.

The Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic event will take place on Tuesday, July 26th. This begins at 9:00 pm and guests may stay until midnight! That would truly be a dream come true! Guests may check in at 6:00 pm and enter the park at 7:00 pm while the park closes at 8:00 pm.

  1. All of the information I was looking for, that I couldn’t find anywhere else! Thank you! We were lucky enough to get reservations for the Sept 28th event, and I was trying to plan in advance. This helped tremendously. Thanks again!
