  • This sounds wonderful! I actually have plans to be in Disneyland on the 5th, and I see in the article that the events are ‘beginning May 4th.’ Will they continue past that special Star Wars day, or is it 24 hours and the After Dark event only?

  • How much does it cost? How late does the event run? What time are day guests pushed to the exits? There is an alarming lack of information in this post.

  • Hi Erin – will the March be similar to the one at Hollywood Studios (including the awesome music)? Thank you in advance!!
