Disneyland to Host Star Wars Nite After-Hours Event During Star Wars Celebration!

If you’re a Star Wars fan, the annual Star Wars Celebration is the event of the year. This year’s convention is being held in the heart of Anaheim, California — aka, in the same city as Disneyland! Naturally, many attendees are eager to visit the Happiest Place on Earth for a chance to see Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge… and Disney is offering a very special event to sweeten the pot.

On August 27th, during the first night of the convention, Disney is set to host Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite! This will be the first Star Wars themed hard-ticket event since Galaxy’s Edge opened last year, and it’s sure to be a blast!

According to the Disneyland website, the event will begin in Tomorrowland at the Star Wars Launch Bay, before culminating in the Twin Moons Eclipse celebration at Black Spire Outpost. Food, character encounters, entertainment, and merchandise will also be available, along with access to select Disneyland rides. We don’t know if Rise of the Resistance will be available during the event, but we certainly have our fingers crossed!

If previous Star Wars themed events are any indication, we can also expect exclusive culinary offerings and decor, plus possible attraction overlays (the return of Hyperspace Mountain, perhaps?).

Tickets are not yet available. However, admission to Star Wars Nite is separate from Star Wars Celebration, allowing guests unable to attend the sold out convention a chance to visit Batuu for this very special event!

Now we’re just holding out hope that this might mean the return of Galactic Nights at Hollywood Studios in the future!

  1. If RotR isn’t available, there will be a rebellion against Disney by all those participating. Hopefully the ride will be more stable by then.
