We'd like to visit Islands of Adventure tomorrow and see the Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle.

Does anyone know if it will be held tomorrow? And, what are the logistics? Is it effectively too crowded to just go to the Castle after dusk? Thanks in advance!

I have not seen dates published ahead of time, since tomorrow is a Saturday chances may be good. Last year there were also roaming death eaters in Hogsmeade. It was very cool. description from OI -

Typically on the nights that Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle plays, there is something of a preshow located down the street, within the heart of Hogsmeade Village: Death Eaters emerge from the corner of Honeydukes and The Three Broomsticks to make a grand entrance, replete with sinister green lighting and a small pyrotechnic display (the baddies shooting off a spell from their wands). Voldemort’s minions then proceed to menacingly prowl Hogsmeade, occasionally setting off spell effects (such as making the lights flicker or a big fireball erupt from above the entrance to Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure) and stopping for those all-important muggle selfies. Then, once they’ve sufficiently made their scene, they escape back from whence they came, sometimes with a hapless wizarding world citizen in their vile clutches.

We are here at Islands of Adventure. Park closes at 7pm today. So, it sure isn't happening today.

We were there for it on Wednesday this past week. Park closed at 8, they did 2 castle shows around 8 and 8:15, and the death eaters didn't come out until 8:15. It was raining that night too though, so not sure if that affected any of the times.

The park closed and then they did the shows?
