FWIW, VAH still has a page on Disneyworld.com. I expected it back this year or last year, maybe 2024 is the charm.

I'd say it was better, it had dedicated treats, decent cavalcade & stage show. Only thing DL does better is roaming around characters/M&Gs.

Yeah but even so that event really wasn’t on the same caliber as the Disneyland After Dark events.

Well there was Villain's After Hours in 2019 & 2020 but why would they try that again if plain after hours are selling out :/

I agree totally. Shame they go the lazy route.

If they're going to do these "After Hours" events, I wish they'd take a page out of Disneyland's playbook. Pick a theme and go all out. But that costs money, which apparently TDO doesn't have.

Maybe unpopular opinion but I wish they’d bring back a hard ticket event like Pirate and Princess. Maybe run FoF at night and some firework show.

No official announcement or dates yet.

No surprise, but Disney After Hours will be back in early 2024.

I know it’s not as simple as flipping a switch, but some after hours throwback nights where they showed Enchantment or Wishes would be immediate sell outs.

The final date for the After Hours event at EPCOT, August 24, has sold out.

A little interesting…VAH is featured on a 2024 calendar. (Yes I know Enchantment is too) https://x.com/christier0408/status/1690862305104347136?s=46&t=ecQrhwSJt2moe28pEQ0Hwg
