2020 Animal Kingdom Moonlight Magic Registration Opens Today

Everybody ready for some Moonlight Magic in 2020?  

DAK Everest Night

We haven't even reached Thanksgiving 2019 and it's time to register for a little Moonlight Magic in 2020!

On the nights of Tuesday, January 21, Tuesday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 25, 2020, owners will enjoy exclusive late night access to Disney's Animal Kingdom.  

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.  

Events run from 9:00pm to midnight on all three evenings. Members and their guests will enjoy complimentary parking beginning at 5:30pm and can check-in for the event after 6:00pm. Check-in is available at all Disney Vacation Club resorts, the theme park entrance and within the park at The Ticket Corner located near Discovery Trading Company.  See our prior coverage for additional details on the 2017 Moonlight Magic at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  

Members with confirmed Disney hotel reservations on the night of an event can start booking the three Animal Kingdom dates beginning at 9:00am Eastern on Wednesday, November 20.  Click HERE to be redirected to the event sign-up page. In 2019, Disney Vacation Club began using a new virtual queue system, which seems to have streamlined the registration process.  

Those staying at a Disney hotel can book Moonlight Magic for the party size listed on their reservation.  Members are limited to one Moonlight Magic event per theme park in 2020.  Capacity is limited and registration is required.  A DVC member ID card and photo ID must be presented upon arrival.

Registration will open to those without hotel reservations on Wednesday, December 4. 2019.  At that time, members will be able to book a maximum party size of themselves and up to three guests.  

The next events in the Moonlight Magic series are planned for the nights of March 3, April 21 and April 28, 2020 at the Magic Kingdom.  Reservations will open on January 8 for hotel guests and January 15 for others.
