You already know that Disney is magical. But did you know that the magic continues long after the parks have closed to regular visitors? I got my first glimpse at after-hours magic in college when I was invited to a party inside Epcot at the Odyssey Center long after the park closed. Before that night I had no idea there was more to Disney magic then just day-time hours. Over the past couple of years, I have had the privileged to attend several parties inside Disney parks after hours and each has been spectacular. Disney does know how to wow.
In December, I attended a bash of all bashes at Epcot to celebrate the reopening of Test Track. Through a partnership with Chevrolet, Test Track has been completely reimagineered and when Disney and Chevy come together to throw a party “Wow” doesn’t even begin to describe the shindig.
Food, fireworks and a private concert by One Republic!
Who would have thought my daughters’ first rock concert would be held at Epcot?!
I posted a LOT of pictures on Instagram of our Disney visit during the #NewFantasyLand grand opening, but the pictures of One Republic during the #TestTrack party garnered the most jealousy from friends.It truly was a magical evening.
No, the magic doesn’t end when Disney Parks close at the end of the day to guests. And each time I am invited to a VIP parties I am left to wonder what other magical parties are happening after hours at the happiest place on earth.
Have you ever been to a private party at Disney? I’d love to hear about it.
Thank you to Chevrolet and Disney for inviting me to be part of this very special weekend of events. All thoughts and opinions are my own.0
