Finally!!! Disneyland After Dark events are making a return!

There are 3 after dark themed nights.
Sweetheart’s Nite
Villains Nite
Star Wars Nite

These events, much like Oogie Boogie Bash and Merriest Nites take place after the park has closed for the general public. With each event ticket you are allowed to access the park a few hours before the actually event where you can mix in with regular park goers. On these select nights the park will close earlier than normal and everyone who does not have a wrist band will be ushered out of the park.

These events have limited ticket sales which allows you to ride more rides with less of a wait. Not to mention special themed food and merchandise as well appearances from rare characters.

For those of you who have previously purchased After Dark event tickets:

If you previously purchased a ticket for the 2020 Disneyland After Dark: Villains Nite or  Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite events, you can exchange your 2020 event ticket(s) to one of the nights of the new event of the same theme (e.g., exchange 2020 Villains Nite ticket for ticket to Villains Nite on March 8 or 10, 2022, or exchange 2020 Star Wars Nite ticket for ticket to Star Wars Nite on May 3 or 4, 2022, respectively) anytime from today through Jan. 8, 2022. An exchange for a 2020 Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite ticket for a ticket to the May 27, 2022, Star Wars Nite can be made, but with an additional fee equal to the difference in price of the 2020 and 2022 tickets. Visit for more information. Simply call Guest Information Ticket Sales at (714) 300-7807 by Jan. 8, 2022, to make that exchange. Disneyland After Dark tickets purchased in 2020 will not be valid for admission to any event and must be exchanged to participate in an event.

If you do not wish to exchange your 2020 Disneyland After Dark event ticket to the new event dates or you missed the exchange window, you may call (714) 300-7807 for your options.
