The fan-favorite event, Disney After Hours, is a coveted Disney experience. As many Disney Fanatics know, it’s a specially ticketed event that allows fans access to the Walt Disney World Resort “after the gates close for the night, extending access to favorite attractions,” per the Disney Parks Blog. It’s particularly sought after for being a limited event: lower wait times for all-time favorites like Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, it’s a small world, and Jungle Cruise are all accessible to fans with lower wait times and a nighttime experience of the attractions. Now fans will get the chance to explore more Disney Theme Parks from the Disney Resort’s impressive selection (EPCOT, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the two water Parks) during Disney After Hours.
