‘Disney After Hours’ branded events were introduced in 2016 and have been offered in most subsequent years, most recently in 2023. The events allow guests to visit select Walt Disney World Resort parks for three hours following general park closure and include character meet and greets, complimentary snacks, and lower wait times for attractions.
