Earlier this year the Magic Kingdom debuted a new hard-ticket event, Disney After Hours, giving guests a chance to spend more time in the park after dark. And now, that event is back for seven nights in early 2017.

Disney After Hours
is a hard-ticket event where a limited number of guests can enjoy little-to-no wait times at popular attractions including Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Haunted Mansion, it's a small world, Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and more.

Guests who purchase an After Hours ticket can enter the park as early as 7 p.m. so they can enjoy Wishes, and then they can remain in the park for three hours past closing time.

The event also includes complimentary ice cream, popcorn, and beverages as part of the ticket price. Other menu items can be purchased at the Main Street Bakery and other locations during the event.

The 2017 After Hours at the Magic Kingdom are set for January 20 and 27; February 2, 9, and 16; and March 2 and 9. The Magic Kingdom will close to non-event guests at 8 p.m. on the February dates and at 9 p.m. on the January and March dates.

The price for a Disney After Hours ticket is $119 per person (adult and child) and $89 for Annual Passholder and Disney Vacation Club members (adults and children). In February the event takes place from 8-11 p.m. and in January and March it takes place from 9 p.m. until midnight.

Has anybody gone to one of these after hours events? Just wondering if it was worth the extra $$

That's my question too oHIo. I'm tempted, but would be upset if it's not as "exclusive" as it's made out to be. The evenings from last year were really quiet, but I believe it was more $$ and shorter notice.
