Looking to experience the Magic Kingdom with very few Guests? Disney has the solution for you with its Disney After Hours event. What is Disney After Hours? It’s a special, hard-ticketed evening, where Guests are able to enjoy quicker access to attractions, enabling Guests to maximize their time in the park with quicker access to over 25 attractions and character greetings.

    No Splash, no sale.

    Also, Princess Fairytale Hall? Seems like there would be very limited overlap between the guests who want to meet princesses and the guests who are awake after 10pm.

      Those were just a few of the attractions that will be open. Splash is on the list and it’s been added.

      Also, you’d be surprised who wants to meet the Princesses at Princess Fairytale Hall. It’s not JUST the kiddos. Granted, that’s a big part of their market, but personally, I’m not waiting 45 minutes, as an adult with no kids, to meet the Princesses during the day, but give me a 5 minute wait, and I may just say yes.

      I took my daughters to a Jan. After Hours, and they went bonkers for the Princesses. We walked right in, and they got to spend a lot more time than normal. Better yet, that’s a Fast Pass I didn’t have to dedicate during normal Park hours

    Can you purchase tickets online for this, or do you have to call? Better yet, we’re going down on Sunday, can we buy at Guest Relations?

    That costs about the same as a regular full day ticket to MK for only 4 hours of park time.

      Yes but very little wait time and no crouds!
