Disney's 'After-Hours Parties' Are Coming Back and the Details Sound Incredible

No lines for rides and all-you-can-eat food and drinks!

As magical as the Disney theme parks are during a regular day, it's hard to deny that they know how to do special events like no one else! Recently, the Halloween and Christmas parties have returned for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the parks for more than three months. And now, another beloved event is coming back, too. 

This week, the company announced that Disney World's After Hours parties are coming back next year, as @livingbydisney shared on TikTok. And if you've never been to one before, you might just be convinced to go after seeing this video. 

Those who buy a ticket to the After Parties will get access to the theme parks for three hours after the parks close, which means there will be no line to get on even the most popular rides and attractions that might require an hour or more of waiting during the day. But you aren't just limited to those three hours — party goers are allowed to enter the park starting at 7 pm, which means they get to enjoy the end of the regular day (including fireworks), too.

There's one other big perk included: You can eat as many snacks like Mickey ice cream bars and popcorn as you want, along with as many soft drinks you can drink, during the party for free!

The parties are scheduled to happen at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios from January to April 2023, so if you are planning a trip during those months, you'll definitely want to stay tuned to find out when tickets are on sale. 

If you hate waiting in line and love free snacks, this event is for you!
