Disneyland Hosting Late-Night Star Wars Event In May

What’s the perfect way to ring in May 4, otherwise known as Star Wars Day? Possibly by checking out Disneyland After Dark’s special late-night Star Wars event on Thursday, May 3.

According to Disney Parks Blog, Star Wars Night is the park’s second Disneyland After Dark. Guests will buy a special ticket for the after-hours event, which grants them access as early as 6 p.m. By 9 p.m., however, the Star Wars will be in full effect until 1 a.m.

Star Wars elements of the evening include a “galactic dance party,” immersive photo backdrops with unlimited PhotoPass downloads, Star Wars-themed merchandise and food, and a souvenir lanyard. Guests may also take a spin on Hyperspace Mountain (that’s the Star Wars version of Space Mountain), witness Captain Phasma leading the First Order through Tomorrowland, and meet Rey at the Star Wars Launch Bay (the park character, not Daisy Ridley).

The park also dangles another tempting carrot: shorter wait times for non-Star Wars attractions including Jungle Cruise and It’s a Small World.

Tickets are $99, parking not included. Disneyland annual pass holders can purchase them starting March 29, while the rest of us will have to wait until March 29. Costumed are encouraged. More info here.

For those wanting to immerse themselves in a galaxy far, far away without taking the trip to Anaheim, there’s always The VOID’s Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire.
