DVC Members Can Book NEW Fort Wilderness Cabins

After Hours Return to EPCOT

After Hours is back at not one, not two, but THREE Disney World parks for 2024! We’ve already experienced the event at Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom in January, but as of February 2nd, After Hours events at EPCOT are back!


These separately ticketed events will take place on certain nights from February 2nd until July 18th, 2024, and they have complimentary snacks, low wait times, and low crowd levels. Tickets range in price from $149 to $159 depending on the night and Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can get a discount.

It’s less time in the parks than a typical theme park ticket gives you, but you can do SO much more in a short time since Disney limits the number of tickets sold!

Princess Half Marathon Weekend

runDisney hosts several events at Disney World throughout the year and in February, the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend is coming! The races happen from February 22nd to 26th, 2024.


If you have plans to be in Disney World during this time, beware of extra crowds in the parks. The races happen early in the morning and many runners head to the parks afterward to celebrate. Keep this in mind when planning your upcoming trips!

We also have to warn you about some road closures for the races happening near Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort! On February 24th, 2024, roads will be affected from 3AM to 7:30AM for the Disney Princess 10K. On February 25th, 2024, the roads will be impacted from 3AM to 10AM for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. That’s another thing to keep in mind!

The Unexpected Reason To AVOID Disney World in February

The EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival Kicks Off

The 2024 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival is kicking off a little earlier this year on February 28th, 2024! The festival will end on May 27th, which means this festival will be much shorter than previous years.
