New Disney After Hours Event Dates Added through Spring 2020

The popular Disney After Hours Event is Walt Disney World is continuing to add dates throughout the Winter months and into Spring 2020. This hard-ticketed event lets guests stay in one of the theme parks after hours and enjoy the attractions with very few other people around.

Besides attractions, Disney After Hours guests also get free snacks such as: Ice Cream Treats, Popcorn and Water.

(UPDATE 11/1/19): Disney has recently added new Disney After Hours dates for Spring 2020, besides the dates they already had running through March. New dates have been added for both the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. There are no dates currently scheduled for Epcot or Hollywood Studios in 2020.

The following are the new Disney After Hours dates they just added:

Magic Kingdom:

  • November 2019: 18
  • December 2019: 9

Hollywood Studios:

Toy Story Land at Night

Right now there are no Disney After Hours events scheduled in the Hollywood Studios. If Disney adds some dates in the future we will update you.

I personally think the Disney After Hours events are the best ticketed special event because you don’t have to wait in lines and you can get on attractions like Flight of Passage 10 times if you want, no problem.

If you have a ticket for Disney After Hours you can get into the park 2 hours before the official opening at 7pm which should give you some extra time before the event starts.

How Much does Disney After Hours Cost?

Prices for Disney After Hours events for 2020 have increased $4 from the 2019 prices. Prices are now $129 plus tax if you order in advance and $139 plus tax on the day-of the event.

Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club member pay $99 plus tax per adult or child. Tickets can be ordered by calling (407) 827-7185.

What are your thoughts about them adding a Star Wars special ticket event at HS for May the fourth and/or beyond?


Tuesday 11th of February 2020

Do you think there will be regular after hours announced for the Magic Kingdom in July..other than the Villains night? I've done the MK after-hours before & loved it..I would highly recommend it & do it each trip, if offered. My concern is that the Villains night will be lots more crowded (since it feels like a party event) rather than just a regular, more quiet after hours night?

Hi Jules, thanks for the comment. I'm not sure if they plan on releasing more dates, we'll have to wait and see

We are doing the DVC moonlight Magic at AK on February 25th and MK on March 3rd. We want to do an after hours during the summer of 2020, nothing posted about it yet.

How do these After Hours events effect the Grad Night periods during the late Spring months? Or is Disney no longer doing the Grad Night program? I chaperoned one for a St. Petersburg, FL school in 1986 and was a great time. I actually got to ride the Thunder Mountain Railroad twice in a row without exiting!

I have heard that these events are getting crowded.

I don’t mind spending the money if I can get on flight of passage multiple times. Do you think March events will be super crowded?
