DIS­NEY AF­TER DARK

FamilyFun - - EXPLORE - BY MELISSA KLURMAN

Walt Dis­ney World, never one for sub­tle dis­plays, turns up the “wow” even more when you have kids old enough to stay awake past din­ner. There are pa­rades, dance par­ties, and Fourth of July–wor­thy fire­works ev­ery night. Plus, big kids will get to ex­pe­ri­ence some of their fa­vorite rides in a whole new light.

“In some ways, the parks af­ter dark are bet­ter than the parks dur­ing the day,” says Ja­son Cochran, au­thor of From­mer’s Easyguide to Dis­ney World, Uni­ver­sal and Or­lando. “It’s cooler, many of the long­est lines have died down, and there’s tons of ex­tra en­ter­tain­ment piled on.” Added bonus: With ticket prices hov­er­ing around $100 a day, if you stick around for night­time ac­tiv­i­ties, you can stretch your bud­get. So choose a park from our list, and get ready to say so long to bed­time. (Hey, it’s a va­ca­tion af­ter all.)

The nightly fire­works above Cin­derella’s cas­tle are the largest in Dis­ney World.
