UPDATE 5/3/18: Tickets are now on sale!

Exciting news Star Wars fans! Due to unprecedented demand for the Disneyland After Dark – Star Wars Nite event, I’m pleased to share that we have added a second celebration of Star Wars on May 9!

Guests at this after-hours event will once again have special access to Disneyland park to celebrate a galaxy far, far away. You’re also encouraged to come dressed in favorite Star Wars attire!

This next Star Wars-themed celebration will give you a chance to experience many of the same offerings from our first Star Wars Nite event, including:

  • After-hours access to Disneyland park, with mix-in access beginning at 6 p.m.
  • Special entertainment, including a galactic dance party and character encounters!
  • Themed décor and immersive Star Wars-themed photo opportunities.
  • Specialty food and beverage offerings.
  • Commemorative lanyard, event credential and unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos taken during the event.

Additionally, we will be adding new experiences for this second celebration of Star Wars, which will include:

  • Opportunity to be among the first to purchase Solo: A Star Wars Story pins (quantities are limited).
  • An additional Star Wars-themed photo opportunity.
  • Acme Archives Limited artist showcase and signing.
  • Book signing for “It’s Your Universe” (quantities are limited).

A limited quantity of tickets will be available starting May 1, so be sure to visit for pricing and details.

As a reminder, beginning May 4, all Disneyland park guests will be able to enjoy these new and returning Star Wars experiences:

  • “March of First Order” – Captain Phasma guides a squad of First Order stormtroopers through Tomorrowland in a dramatic show of force.
  • Encounter Rey – Meet the Resistance’s newest hero at Star Wars Launch Bay.
  • Hyperspace Mountain – This popular transformation of Space Mountain returns!

Lastly, don’t’ miss Solo: A Star Wars Story, in theaters May 25.

  • Will there be a chance for us to win tickets?

  • Would I be able to attend the event with my imperial bridge crew uniform

  • Brian, would you like to trade days? I was supposed to go with my friend on the 3rd, but my purchase was “never completed.” She’s not familiar with the park, and wanted me to go with her….

  • Awesome! Do you know what time the tickets will be available online that day?

  • Is this additional event only for AP Holders?

  • Why are there additional experiences on this one??? I have tickets for the may 3rd night, but I want those NEW experiences too…

  • I can’t seem to find the prices anywhere for these tickets. Also, it says events include operation of attractions- but just how much of the park/attractions will be available?

  • Awesome! Will there be an opportunity for annual passholders to buy tickets before the general public??
