Hello everyone,

At the end of February we were fortunate enough to attend a special event at the Magic Kingdom held for DVC Members. Moonlight Magic was held on two separate nights from 10pm until 1am. Tickets were free for DVC members and up to five of their guests, however, you needed to book it in advance, and spaces were limited.   [ Read More... ]
[UPDATED!] NEWS - Disney After Hours event details released!

Hello everyone,

For a few days rumours of a new special event have been floating around the internet of a special event coming to the Magic Kingdom during April and May. Today, the special events page on the official Walt Disney World website has details of the event, while the Disney Parks Blog has yet to announce it (at time of writing at least).

The event will be held from 10pm until 1am on April 28th and May 5th, and from 11pm until 2am on April 14th and 21st, and May 8th, 12th and 19th, 2016.

Tickets for the events are priced at $149 per person, including children, plus tax.

The website page gives little away, except that the event will keep open some of the most popular attractions in the park, such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Big Thunder Mountain.

As character fans we were hoping that this might be a special character event, but unfortunately all the page says is "Disney Princess Greetings at Princess Fairytale Hall" and "most popular attractions and Character Greetings". That point is interesting though because recently there have been a lot of sighting of the Disney Princes around the parks with the princesses (such as the Snow Prince at Epcot last week, and Prince Charming at Magic Kingdom the other day), which leads me to believe that perhaps they may appear at the event. That is my own speculation though, and you should not count on that for your planning purposes.

UPDATE March 23: The Disney Parks Blog today said the following (I quote):

This event will enable participants to enjoy more exclusive time in Magic Kingdom – with quicker than typical access to popular attractions like Space Mountain and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and character greetings like the ones in Town Square and Princess Fairytale Hall.

This very much makes it sound like that the character offerings will be the regular greetings, and nothing special.

Ticket numbers are very limited apparently, and you have to call Disney rather than book online.

If any more information is released, I'll be sure to update this blog post.

Have a great day everyone,


Character Central
