So I was wondering about this event: do you have to be ticketed for the park that day to buy the event ticket? As somebody mentioned that it was more six hours? How does that work?

I'm a Fl resident M-F season passholder, and I was considering doing one of these (you get a slight discount as a seasonpass holder, and it would be a way to get in on a Saturday potentially).

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

You don't have to already be admitted the day of to take part in the After Hours events. They're hard-ticketed events along the lines of the Halloween and Christmas parties, they're effectively separate admissions.

Because of that, you buying an After Hours ticket for a Saturday doesn't have anything to do with your annual pass, it's as if you were to pay for general admission on one of your block out days.

However, you are allowed in for a few hours of normal operation before the "after hours" event begins. They obviously can't stop people hanging around in the park after the normal day is over, but after a certain time they will only allow people with the event wristbands on the attractions.

Keep in mind that Hollywood Studios is the Saturday park, Animal Kingdom is Tuesday / Wednesday and Magic Kingdom is Monday / Thursday. They don't offer After Hours for EPCOT [yet].

This is random but on the subject of these events, since they let you into the park early do you still get to book Fastpasses during the time that the park is open (even if you don't have an annual pass or a day ticket)?

I just went ahead and bought one. I got it for a day that my season pass isn't blacked out, so I got my traditional FP+'s. But I'm not sure of the answer for if you wouldn't have rights to get in with the After Hours pass. Best bet would be to try it yourself in the Disney website. I'm 90% sure that you probably could, and if so, that would be valuable.
