I’m wondering if Disney is planning to extend the Disney After Hours program or not. It seems like they aren’t posting dates beyond April 13 at the moment. But, this seems like it would pose problems for guests…at least on-site guests. If you plan to swap out a park day for an After Hours event, you would want to know when the After Hours events are at least 60 days before hand so that you can buy your tickets so that you can plan fast passes. But without certainty of an After Hours event, you risk not buying the right number of days.
Of course, I suppose Disney has no qualms if you “over buy” your tickets and then add on DAH. They make more money that way. But at the same time, considering they are allowing “early entry” for DAH guests before park closes, it kind of leaves the impression they expect folks are paying for this instead of an additional park day.
So, this makes me wonder if the program will continue or not. If it does, why would they not schedule DAH events at LEAST 60 days in advance? (Actually, it would be better to do 60+length of stay…so, really they should have events planned out for probably 74 days ahead of time instead.)
Presuming they DO continue DAH, my son and DIL would want to only buy 3 day park tickets and then get the AK DAH event tickets. (The cost of saving 1 day of tickets is almost the same as the price of the DAH event, so it would effectively replace an AK day.) It would be frustrating if they go to buy their tickets and don’t yet know if there will actually be a DAH event.
