2018 Moonlight Magic Dates for Disney Vacation Club Members

2018 Moonlight Magic Dates for Disney Vacation Club Members

Members will enjoy more Moonlight Magic event dates than ever in 2018, with parties already confirmed for every month from January through November, with more dates still to come! To help you plan accordingly, Disney Vacation Club is pleased to share confirmed party and booking dates.

The confirmed slate includes the first Moonlight Magic events at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where the highly anticipated Toy Story Land is scheduled to have made its playful debut by the time Members take over the park. Also confirmed is a return to Disney California Adventure park, where Paradise Pier is scheduled to have become Pixar Pier – headlined by the highly anticipated transformation of California Screamin’ into “The Incredibles”-inspired Incredicoaster!

Complimentary Moonlight Magic events invite Disney Vacation Club Members and special guests to turn Disney Parks into their own personal playgrounds at the end of the parks’ operating days. While attendees may get a jump start on the fun by mixing in with the regular crowd earlier in the evening, the real magic happens after the park has closed to the public. It’s then that privileged partiers discover shorter-than-usual wait times on popular attractions, meet off-the-beaten-path characters, enjoy complimentary refreshments, let loose at dance parties and more.

Here’s a look at the confirmed 2018 Moonlight Magic schedule, including the dates on which online reservations will open for each event:

Jan. 11 and 28, and Feb. 6 at Magic Kingdom Park

Disney will no longer be offering the Disney Vacation Club Member-exclusive MagicSliders for MagicBands that were issues to Disney Vacation Club members for their Disneyworld vacations. All DVC Members staying in eligible Walt Disney World accommodations, booked with a Disney Vacation Club Membership, received MagicSliders with their MagicBand order or at the resort front desk upon check in if MagicBands were not ordered via the MyDisneyExperience website or app ahead of time. It has not been announced if new DVC Member Exclusive will be available to replace the MagicSliders, but there are limited number of MagicSliders still available at DVC Disneyworld resort front desks. If you are staying at a DVC resort and want one before they run out, be sure to inquire ASAP.
