he ultimate adult Disneyland party has been created – “Disneyland After Dark”. We recently attended the “Star Wars” After Dark event at Disneyland and were shocked. We expected a couple of character photos, shorter ride lines and an occasional Storm Trooper. Our plan was to get there at 9 PM (when the event started), stay for a couple of hours and go home.
Before we knew it, it was 1 AM and time to go. This was an exceptional event with non-stop activities, fireworks, Hyperspace Mountain, character signings, actual Star Wars movie actors and the ultimate…Disneyland Galaxy’s Edge imagineers presenting never-before seen photos and videos of their work for the newest upcoming park expansion. (The Galaxy’s Edge presentation was so proprietary, we had to encase our phones in sealed envelopes before entering to ensure no pictures would be taken.)
There were a handful of brave parents with children, but being a late weeknight event, it was almost exclusively adults. Many dressed up – but most went no further than to don their best mickey ears.
Some of the After Dark Event benefits:
- only paid event guests are allowed in Disneyland Park
- short ride times
- front row fireworks
- exclusive themed merchandise
- limited edition collectibles
- speciality food/drink
It was the ultimate adult Disneyland party.
