RUMOR: “Disney After Hours” Paid Event Expanding to More Walt Disney World Theme Parks

We’ve got a new rumor to share with you about the expansion of the Disney After Hours paid event. According to our sources, Disney is looking to expand the offering to both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. With a new land at each of the parks, it seems like Disney is looking to give guests a way to buy lower wait times in Pandora – The World of Avatar and Toy Story Land.

Note that Disney After Hours is a paid event, whereas Extra Magic Hours is included with your resort stay and a completely different offering.

While we’re still working to get details such as the price and start date, we’re told that the event will keep the same 3 hour duration that guests enjoy at Magic Kingdom.

Currently, Disney After Hours is only offered at Magic Kingdom for $125. Here are the details of how the event is structured there:

On select nights now through March 2019, don’t miss your chance to skip the wait times for more than 25 popular attractions and Character Greetings—including:

  • Astro Orbiter
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
  • Disney Princess Greetings at Princess Fairytale Hall
  • Haunted Mansion
  • “it’s a small world”
  • Jungle Cruise
  • Mickey’s PhilharMagic
  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • And much, much more!

Ice Cream, Popcorn & Select Beverages Included – In the midst of the laughs and thrills, be sure to chill out with ice cream novelties and select bottled beverages—included in the cost of admission—available at carts stationed throughout the park. In addition, you can also purchase select menu items at Main Street Bakery and select locations throughout the park.

As always, you should treat this and any other rumor as unofficial unless and until Disney confirms it. Should Disney confirm our rumor, we’ll be sure to update you with all of the details.

About the Author:

My enthusiasm for all things Disney all started when my parents took our family to WDW for a vacation. My first trip was at age 13. Since that first time, I have made a trip to WDW almost every year from age 13. As far as I knew there was only one place to vacation! My fascination with WDW began on that first trip. I wanted to know how things at WDW operated and what made it so magical. I wanted to know details like how many people worked there and the length of the monorail track. It is that fascination that fueled my interest in WDW. Each year that my family vacationed at WDW, I learned more about WDW as they built more parks and added more attractions. I am not the average fan; I want to know all the details and I love researching the facts of WDW. I research facts through the Internet, books and DVDs. To me, the best part is to conduct research trip at WDW. After college, my father was transferred to Orlando and I moved with my parents. Seeking employment, I applied for a job at WDW. I passed the first rounds of interviews and was proud to join the Disney family as a security cast member! The job was great. It included Disney-specific training and security training before assuming four duties: driving a security vehicle, standing a post, working in a resort or walking a park or other area. Sometimes I even had special duties like working the Epcot Christmas Processional. I would escort the celebrity guests from backstage to onstage. Interestingly, every cast member is given a WDW fact book monthly to aid in answering guest questions. The pocket book contained great Disney facts that added more fuel for my thirst of Disney facts. Well, all-good things must come to end so we moved back to NJ. In the summer of 2010 I moved back to Florida I am now living in Orlando less then 15 minutes from WDW and living the dream and have fun along the way. Favorite Park – Magic Kingdom Favorite Character – Mickey Mouse Favorite restaurant – California Grill Favorite attraction – Toy Story Mania Favorite resort – Bay Lake Tower / Contempoary First time at a disney park – 1976 & have been every year since Who was on your first disney trip – My entire family Favorite disney memory – My first trip and my first trip with my kids How far do you live from disney now – 15 minutes When is your next Disney trip? – every weekend Favorite Disney Movie – Jungle Book & Toy Story
