Walt Disney World Expands Disney After Hours to Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom

Disney After Hours is a special ticketed event where guests have the opportunity to enjoy 3 hours in the park after regular park hours to enjoy shorter lines for popular attractions, character greetings and special experiences.  Guests are even able to enter the park a couple hours in advance to get a little more park time before the event begins, too!  Ice cream, popcorn and select beverages are also included in admission so that guests have snacks to enjoy while at the park.  Previously the event was only offered at Magic Kingdom Park and now it will be offered at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
