When the Sun's Away, Our Parks Play!

Ready for the time of your pixie dust-lovin' life? Guests are invited to a series of extraordinary events filled with quintessential Disney magic! On select nights, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will host separately ticketed soirées that pull out all the stops in legendary Disney fashion—after the parks close to the general public.

Each 4-hour happening is packed with fun festivities and unique offerings that you simply won't experience during regular daytime visits. Plus, you'll have even more time to play and explore during the 3-hour, pre-party park mix-in included with each ticket. All Disneyland After Dark events are geared to a specific theme, so mark your calendars, book early and don't miss the opportunity to create a trove of memories you'll treasure forever!
