A New Theme Park and New Dates Added for Disney After Hours Events


More of a good thing is always a great thing! Walt Disney World Resort has announced additional dates for the Disney After Hours events AND a new theme park to take advantage of the after hours series.

What is Disney After Hours?

Just in case you aren’t familiar with Disney After Hours, these specially ticketed experiences occur after the gates close for the night, extending access to favorite attractions and providing you with more opportunities to have a magical Disney experience. 

The event ticket also allows you early entry into the park beginning at 6 p.m. at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and 7 p.m. at EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Best of all, the number of tickets for these events is limited, which means lower wait times for some of your favorite attractions.


For the first time in forever, you can experience EPCOT for three glorious hours after the gates close and get access to top attractions, like Frozen Ever After, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure

This is your chance to explore all four neighborhoods in the park with shorter attraction wait times. Be sure to snap a few photos with your favorite Disney characters and munch on some of your favorite Disney snacks. Delight in ice cream novelties, popcorn and select beverages—all included in the cost of this ticketed event—available at carts throughout the park.

But that’s not all! Grab your neon swimwear and get ready for some glowing tropical fun. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will reopen this spring and along with it, H2O Glow After Hours will be back and ready to “light” up the summer.

With its vibrant decor, a specially themed menu of snacks and treats throughout the park and our favorite watery attractions under the stars, the popular after-hours party is a “must-do” with friends and family this summer. Don’t miss out on what could be the high-“light” of your summer! Move and groove to hot beats during a DJ dance party!  H2O Glow is yet another new experience added to our Disney After Hours portfolio.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios, one of the most popular Disney After Hours experiences, is adding more dates for you to take control of the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, ride through a cartoon adventure in Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, play like one of Andy’s favorite toys in Toy Story Land and more.

These fan-favorite experiences are scheduled to kick off May 20 at Typhoon Lagoon and June 1 at EPCOT. They join Magic Kingdom Park, running through March 27, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, currently running with additional dates being added beginning May 3. They offer a different way to experience the Disney magic!

Event tickets for EPCOT, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Hollywood Studios can be purchased by all guests starting March 3, 2023, with prices ranging from $75 to $149 (plus tax).
