After Hours events are BACK at Magic Kingdom.
The separately ticketed event already kicked off in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but it’s time to enjoy Magic Kingdom’s most popular rides without the wait times or the crowds! Besides a significantly lower amount of people in the parks, here’s what you can expect to see at After Hours in Magic Kingdom.
Taking place on select nights through March 27th, 2023, Magic Kingdom After Hours events require you to purchase a separate ticket that allows guests to enjoy iconic snacks, less crowds, and low wait times in the parks after hours.
You can get into the park starting at 7PM with an After Hours ticket (and we recommend getting there right at 7PM), so you can start your night in the park early.
You can enjoy a variety of treats, including ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select bottled beverages all included in the price of your ticket. There will be snack carts around the park with these items and you can have as many as you want. We got a Mickey Premium Bar…

Don’t forget to hydrate — Dasani water bottles are also included.
You can also pick up some snacks at Main Street Bakery or Casey’s Corner during the event.
Low Wait Times
The biggest draw to this event is the low wait times. Magic Kingdom has some consistently long lines at its more popular attractions and at this event, you’ll get to skip ’em! You won’t have to buy an Individual Lightning Lane for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Genie+ to skip the lines at the other popular attractions.

Will Big Thunder Railroad not be available?
We did the Hollywood Studios and it was totally worth it! Walked on everything but SDD and ROR and those were less than 10 minutes.
So fun! Was the train running around the park during it? Also, any idea where they have visitors park, is it just regular parking?
