Today Walt Disney World announced that a new ticketed event will be arriving for the Halloween season to take place this year at the Magic Kingdom.
The new event is a return of the Disney After Hours events with a Halloween flavor. Unfortunately, this means there won’t be a return of Mickey’s No-So-Scary Halloween Party. Based on all of the changes surrounding the re-opening of the theme park due to the pandemic, this really doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” will take place on select nights, Aug. 10 – Oct. 31, from 9 PM to midnight. Some event nights in August and September will be from 9:30 PM to 12:30 AM.
Spooky festivities will include Halloween-themed cavalcades, character sightings throughout the park, special performances by the Cadaver Dans, décor, lighting, music, treat stops with plenty of candy and so much more!
“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” tickets will grant admission to Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7 PM without the need for a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation, giving guests time to enjoy even more favorites.
Disney said the tickets will go on sale next month, with an early purchase window available to guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Disney has not mentioned pricing for the event as of yet.
Walt Disney World announced earlier today that ‘Disney After Hours’ will continue for the Magic Kingdom into the winter of 2018 and into 2019, with dates available from December 3, 2018 until March 7, 2019.
As before, when attending this event guests can get in as early as 7 PM to experience the fireworks before hitting more than 25 attractions and experiences with little to no wait! The event also includes complimentary ice cream novelties and beverages.
The new dates and times are:
- December 3: 10 PM – 1 AM

- January 7: 8 PM – 11 PM

I have not had to attend a ‘Disney After Hours’ event yet, though it looks like one of the new dates might be during my next trip. This is definitely something I am considering. Everyone that I know who has gone has loved the event.

Last year, the Disney After Hours ticketed event nights debuted at Magic Kingdom Park and delighted guests with quick access to some of the park’s most popular attractions and character greetings.

The Disney After Hours ticket allows park entry as early as 7 p.m., which gives attendees time to enjoy the park’s nightly “Happily Ever After” fireworks, and then remain in the park until 11 p.m. and some nights to 12:00 a.m.
