Animal Kingdom Moonlight Magic Opens to All

Disney Vacation Club members without hotel reservations are now able to register for their choice of three Moonlight Magic nights in March, April and May.  

Disney's Animal Kingdom Tree of Life Night

Three weeks ago, Disney Vacation Club began accepting registrations for the upcoming Moonlight Magic evenings at Disney’s Animal Kingdom from eligible members with confirmed hotel reservations.  Beginning at 9:00am Eastern on Thursday, February 22, members without hotel bookings can sign-up to attend, too.

The events are scheduled for the nights of Wednesday, March 21Tuesday, April 17 and Wednesday, May 16, 2018.  Moonlight Magic provides DVC members with complimentary after-hours access to the park, with reduced wait time for most attractions.  Also featured in the events are unique character meet-and-greet opportunities, free refreshments, a DJ dance party and more. 

Event timing has not yet been disclosed. In 2017, members were permitted to enter the park as early as 7:00pm using their Moonlight Magic credentials.  The event officially began at 9:30pm and ran until 1:00am.  See our prior coverage for details on the 2017 Moonlight Magic at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  

A new rule limits members to one Moonlight Magic event per theme park in 2018.  Capacity is limited and advance registration is required.  A DVC member ID card and photo ID must be presented upon arrival.

The next events in the Moonlight Magic series are planned for the nights of May 30 and June 11, 2018 at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park.  Reservations will open on April 19 for hotel guests and May 3 for others.
