After Hours Event at the Magic Kingdom

No one wants the magic to end. Days spent at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World are fun, exciting and chock full of memory making moments. And for many people, when Cinderella's castle sends out its final kiss goodnight and goes dark, it's just too sad to think about leaving.

Disney knows this, so they've decided to allow a select number of guests in the park after closing for a special party. This spring, they'll be hosting an After Hours event that will allow guests to play in the park beyond the posted closing hour.

The ticketed event begins at 7:00 PM and lasts until three hours after closing. With only a limited number of tickets sold, the crowds will be far less than during regular park hours so lines will be significantly shorter.

Also, guests will be treated to complimentary ice cream and bottled drinks and can purchase food items from a limited menu at Casey's Corner or Starbucks (yes, even the Magic Kingdom has a Starbucks).

Event tickets are $149 (tax not included) per person for select nights in April and May. Official check-in for the event will take place at the Main Entrance to the theme park beginning at 7:00 PM.

Event dates for Spring 2016 are April 14th, 21st and 28th. And in May on the 5th, 8th, 12th and 19th. No further dates have been announced as this is likely just a test to gauge popularity.

To purchase a ticket, please call the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 827-7185 for assistance.
