Disneyland After Dark returns for Star Wars Nite on selected dates throughout April and May. Guests can enter Disneyland Park after hours and take part in a whole host of fun activities, from lightsaber training to a galactic dance party.

The separately ticketed event runs from 9pm to 1am, though this includes park entry from 6pm, which means you’ll have plenty of time to hop on the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Big Thunder Mountain without waiting in long lines.

The dates for this event are April 16, 18, 23, 25, 30, and May 2, 7, and 9, 2024.
