Come With Us to the NEW Disney Princess After Hours Event!

Disneyland is throwing a ball for princesses everywhere, and you’re invited.


We just experienced a magical Disneyland After Hours event: Princess Nite! Follow along with us to dance the night away with some of the most beloved Disney Princesses at this exclusive special ticketed event.

That’s right! Princess Nite has RETURNED as a Disneyland After Hours event! Guests were able to grab tickets for this event as early as December, so it’s built up quite the anticipation. Here’s a look at everything there is to see and do while you’re here!

Welcome to Princess Nite! Got the goods, now let’s go have fun!

Entry into Disneyland begins as early as 6PM but the event will officially take place from 9PM to 1AM.

Day guests leave early so that event guests have the park to themselves with shorter lines!

When we arrived, we first had to check out the exclusive merchandise for the evening! We found tons of cool options, including these t-shirts!

Alright, let the real fun begin! This night is all about the PRINCESSES, of course! Let’s go see if we can spot any throughout the park!

So beautiful!


With this exclusive event, guests are given an incredible opportunity to meet 19 different princesses through the night, including Cinderella, Ariel, Tiana, Moana, and even Princess Leia! We stopped by Main Street, U.S.A. for a chat with some of our favorites: Princess Minnie and Princess Daisy!

Two of our favorite princesses were looking beautiful!

The Princess Trifle consists of a white chocolate mousse and mixed berry compote with vanilla cake! It’s then topped with crunch pearls and a white chocolate crown.

We also tried the Daydreamer Macaroon, which is a raspberry coconut macaroon topped with white chocolate and sprinkles!

We also needed another snack throughout the night, so we got some popcorn! For $30, we got this adorable premium popcorn bucket, featuring Cinderella! These are the Disney100 buckets, so you can find them throughout the park.

Now, this snack is truly one meant for a princess!
