Each Friday, I provide 5 Disney things all Disney fans should know from this past week, just in case you missed them. Here are the super important Disney news items for this week:
Disney After Hours
Well, who would have thought that an announcement about a new event in the Magic Kingdom would have caused such an uproar? Do you think when they announced Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party that folks freaked out? I highly doubt it.
Disney After Hours is a new night time event in the Magic Kingdom, a chance for anyone willing to pay the opportunity to enjoy a basically empty Magic Kingdom for a three hours after the park closes. The cost will be $149 per person plus tax, and currently, Disney After Hours is only available on select nights in April and May, 2016. While dates later in the year have not yet been announced, I am sure that future availability will depend on the success of these first few nights.

Disney Parks themed Heads Up pack now available
If you have waited in any Disney theme park line recently, or really, any line I guess, you most likely have noticed groups of people playing the popular Heads Up! game on the phones. It is an electronic version of the old heads up game we used to play as kids, I put the answer on my forehead for others to see, they have to give me clues so I can figure it out without saying what it is. This week, Disney announced they have released a special Disney Theme Parks pack for Heads Up!, which should just make it so that more people in line will be playing the game as we all wait or Space Mountain.
By the way, while the app is $.99, but once inside the Disney theme parks or at Aulani, you will be able to download the Disney theme park pack for free!
