The Walt Disney World Resort has opened more nights for its "Disney After Hours" hard-ticket event at the Magic Kingdom.
If all you want to do at Disney is spend a day at the Magic Kingdom, Disney After Hours might be the most efficient way to do that. Tickets cost $125 plus tax in advance (with annual pass and Disney Vacation Club discounts available), which gets you into the park at 7pm during the day of the event. Then you can stay in the park for three hours after it closes to the public, enjoying all major attractions — and free soft drinks and Mickey ice cream bars — with a much smaller crowd.
The event effectively gives you between four to six hours in the park (depending upon its public closing time), during which you could be able to do as many, if not more, attractions than you could experience on a typically crowded full day, when you would be paying between $109-129 to visit the Magic Kingdom for a one-day ticket anyway. Throw in a few free $5 ice cream bars, and you can make this a deal.
Of course, you can reduce the cost of a single day at a Disney World park to as little as $45 by buying multi-day tickets, but as I wrote earlier, if you don't want to spend 10 days going to all four Walt Disney World theme parks and just want a single day at the Magic Kingdom instead (hey, theme park junkies, don't scoff — some people are actually looking for that), a night at Disney After Hours might provide a more enjoyable experience than dealing with the regular daytime crowds. YMMV, of course.
Here are the newly announced dates for Disney After Hours, with their "after-closing" hours. Tickets are available on Disney's website.
10:00pm to 1:00am:
9:00pm to Midnight:
8:00pm to 11:00pm:
