Disneyland After Dark, the much-loved event that offers special entertainment and unique themes when dusk falls on Disneyland Resort, is to return to the theme park in 2022.

The return of the popular night-time occasion will feature three classic shows – Sweethearts’ Nite, Villains Nite, and Start Wars Nite.

Sweethearts Nite will be hosted at Disneyland Park on five separate evenings throughout February. The show will feature a themed firework show, projection effects on Sleeping Beauty Castle and Main Street, as well as a jazz band on-board the Mark Twain Riverboat. There will also be other live entertainment, photo ops with Disney characters and special food and drink offerings throughout the park.

Villains Note will take place on two separate evenings in March. Guests will get to party with some of the most iconic Disney villains. There will also be a cabaret show known as The Cauldron, Ursula’s Seaside Sing-along, an Underworld Dance Party, and more.

The Start Wars Nite event is running of three evenings in May. The show will be full of galactic fun, including a pyrotechnical spectacle that illuminates the skies with Star Wars-themed fireworks.

As well as special entertainment and shows, the after-hours event provides access to most of the theme park’s attractions with reduced wait times.
