A couple of years ago, WDW started a popular limited-ticket Special Event that is offered to any guest that is staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel - IF- they have also purchased a multi-day pass.  If you purchase an E-Ride Night ticket, you will be permitted to enter the Magic Kingdom park after park hours for an additional three hours or so.  Most of the headliner "E-Ticket" attractions are kept operating during E-Ride events, so you can enjoy the attractions with a minimum of waits.

The actual list of E-Ride attractions may vary, but a typical line up would include:


Frontierland / Liberty Square

Alien  Encounter
Astro Orbiter
Buzz Lightyear
Space Mountain
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Country Bear Jamboree
Haunted Mansion
Splash Mountain

The charge  for an E-Ride ticket is $10.60 (including 6% tax) for adults and $8.48 (including 6% tax) for children 3-9.  You can contact Guest Services at your resort for more information or to buy tickets for E-Ride nights.

On the E-Ride night itself, you need to trade in your E-Ride ticket for a wrist band.  After the normal park closing time, only those guests with wrist bands are allowed to enter the ride queue.  Check with guest services at your resort, or at City Hall in the Magic Kingdom, about locations for trading in your ticket for a wrist band as the actual location(s) may vary.  Typically there will be two or three locations where you can get your wrist bands.

Note that you will still need to get into the park on the E-Ride night using your normal admission media, the E-Ride ticket does get you into the park, it just allows you to "stay late."  If you have an "Ultimate Park Hopper" or Annual Pass, you're all set.  Otherwise, be aware that you'll use up one "day" of a multi-park pass or you'll need to buy a ticket for that day.
