Walt Disney World will bring back its separate ticket event called Disney After Hours that lets visitors into the Magic Kingdom on select nights this summer. It’s a chance to enjoy lighter crowds during the busiest time of the year at the world’s busiest theme park.

After Hours nights run 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. (though you can arrive as early as 7 p.m.) on 11 nights from late June to mid September.

Tickets purchased in advance are $119 per adult or child ($89 for annual passholders and Disney Vacation Club members) at disneyworld.disney.go.com.

The selling point is these nights typically have shorter waits for more than 25 attractions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain.

Since you can enter as early as 7 p.m., you can catch the park’s big fireworks before it closes for those without the After Hours ticket.

After Hours dates are: June 28 and 30; July 7, 9, 14, 21 and 28; and Aug. 4, 11 and 30.
