After Hours at Walt Disney World Resort

Attending an After Hours event gives fans the unique opportunity to see the Disney Parks after it closes to the general public. After-hours events are offered on select nights throughout the year at Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT. When it comes to popularity, EPCOT has typically been the least popular Park when it comes to After Hours ticket sales.

However, that has just changed. For the first time ever, EPCOT has sold out an after-hours event. On Thursday, July 27, the event will be at its maximum capacity.

Food & Wine Brings Extra Crowds

This surge in popularity is probably due to the upcoming International Food & Wine Festival, which is hosted every year at EPCOT. Starting July 27 and extending through November 18, 2023, EPCOT will be transformed into an international culinary experience. The festival invites Guests to try food and drinks from six continents while also enjoying live music and entertainment.
