Special Disney After Hours Nights Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney After Hours has quickly become a Guest favorite, and it’s easy to see why. Between all the ice cream and popcorn you can eat, complimentary bottled soda and water, little-to-no waits at attractions, and plenty of photo opportunities in an almost empty park, what’s not to love?

Now, Guests can experience more fun than ever at two special Disney After Hours celebrations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!


On May 1st, Guests can celebrate the 30th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In addition to all the amazing perks of a regular Disney After Hours event, Guests will be able to meet Disney, Disney-Pixar, and Star Wars favorites for special photo opportunities!

During the event, there will be an encore performance of the brand-new “Wonderful World of Animation” show just for event attendees. Those that want to be one of the first to see this new show, which debuts at 9:05 p.m. on May 1st for day Guests, will be able to do so without worrying about getting a good spot hours in advance (or ending up with a child on the shoulders of the Guest in front of them!).

The celebration continues with a variety of unique 30th anniversary merchandise available for purchase. If the complimentary ice cream and popcorn aren’t enough to tide Guests over, they can also purchase specialty food and beverage items celebrating the park’s anniversary, such as Kylo Ren Cupcakes, Incredibles Macarons, Tres Leches Verrine, and many more.


On May 4th, Disney After Hours Guests can travel to the far reaches of the galaxy without ever leaving Disney’s Hollywood Studios during the May the Fourth celebration! Characters from the Star Wars universe such as Chewbacca with Rey, Kylo Ren with Captain Phasma, and more will be at the park greeting Guests.

Guests are encouraged to dress up for this event to become even more immersed in the story (as long as their costume fits into park guidelines). Plus, Guests can kick off their night of Star Wars excitement with a bang by viewing Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular at 9:30 p.m.

Of course, both events include all the regular Disney After Hours benefits, such as:
  • Complimentary ice cream, popcorn, and bottled beverages
  • Little-to-no wait times at attractions and character greetings
  • Entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios beginning at 7:00pm
  • Three hours of exclusive park time after regular hours have ended with a limited number of Guests
