Disneyland After Dark Hard-Ticket Event Returning in 2022 With Sweethearts’ Nite, Villains Nite, and “Star Wars” Nite
Disneyland After Dark events are returning to the Disneyland Resort in 2022 with Sweethearts’ Nite, Villains Nite, and “Star Wars”Nite. Disneyland is offering more nights than ever before of each of these limited-time, after-hours events.
Disneyland After Dark events take place after regular park hours and feature unique themes, fun festivities, special nighttime entertainment, and access to most attractions with reduced wait times. Guests also experience special offerings that are not typically available during a regular park visit.
With each separately ticketed Disneyland After Dark event, guests get four hours of non-stop fun after the parks close to day guests. They get even more time to play during the three-hour pre-party mix-in at the same park the event takes place in, which is included with each ticket.
Additionally, at each of these events, guests receive unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos taken during the party, plus commemorative keepsakes including a souvenir credential and event guide map.
Here are the details for each of the upcoming themed nights:
At Villains Nite, you’ll get to party with some of Disney’s most mischievous misfits at Disney California Adventure park. These events will take place on two separate evenings in March 2022, and include:
The Cauldron, a cunningly-crafted cabaret featuring a cast of villainous virtuosos showing off their talents through song and dance
Ursula’s Seaside Sing-a-long, where you can find your voice and sing along
The Underworld Dance Party, which allows you to bust a move at a dastardly DJ dance party in the Hollywood Backlot
Special photo backdrops, featuring scenes inspired by some favorite villains
Some of Disney’s famously nefarious fiends – or their henchmen – at special locations around the park
Delightfully decadent food and beverage offerings
Early admission to Disney California Adventure park beginning at 5 p.m., no theme park reservation required
Star Wars Nite will be the ultimate Star Wars extravaganza on three separate nights at Disneyland park in May 2022. Highlights of Star Wars Nite include:
An amazing pyrotechnical spectacle that will illuminate the skies with a Star Wars-themed fireworks show
March of the First Order, featuring Captain Phasma and her elite unit of Stormtroopers
A Galactic dance party
Sightings of various Star Wars characters throughout the evening
Star Wars-themed attractions, usually with shorter wait times
Star Wars-themed eats and treats, merchandise, photo opportunities, and more
Plus, early admission to Disneyland park starting at 6 p.m., no theme park reservation required
If you previously purchased a ticket for the 2020 Disneyland After Dark: Villains Nite or Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite events, you can exchange your 2020 event ticket(s) to one of the nights of the new event of the same theme anytime from today through Jan. 8, 2022. An exchange for a 2020 Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite ticket for a ticket to the May 27, 2022, Star Wars Nite can be made, but with an additional fee equal to the difference in price of the 2020 and 2022 tickets.
