Has Magic Kingdom Lost Its Magic? The Attendance For This Special Event May Say So

For some fans, there’s no such thing as too much Disney. If you feel this way, you might be interested in the Disney After Hours event.

Disney After Hours is a special event in which a select theme park stays open for an extra three hours after the Park usually closes, giving hardcore Disney fans even more magic.

This special event only sells a limited amount of tickets, creating lower lines during the event. Not only that, but according to Walt Disney World Resort’s official website, “ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select beverages” are included with the ticket.

The special event is offered on select nights from January through April 2023.
