    If I arrive early at 6pm on sweethearts nite, are lanyards and bracelets given out early?

    Hey there, Sarah. From a fellow Oregonian, welcome to planDisney. Thanks for stopping by to share this question with us. Woohoo! I'm so excited to hear that you will be attending the first Disneyland After Dark event of the year. It's going to be a smashing time, so let's make sure you're all ready.

    Congratulations on securing your tickets for the sold-out Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts’ Nite. I can't think of a better way to start the new year than by spending a magical evening with the one you love at the Disneyland Resort. I can understand your excitement and desire to get a head start on your evening. The event will officially start at 9:00 p.m., however, you can arrive up to three hours early at 6:00 p.m. to check in for the evening. This will be the earliest that you can check in for the event and receive your commemorative credential and guide map.

    When attending these special events, I like to use this time to map out my must-dos for the evening. I'll line up any mobile orders for themed food offerings and make my plan for any characters that I want to snap a photo with before the evening is over. Meeting characters and taking advantage of the fun photo ops are probably what I love the most about Disneyland After Dark events. All of the Disney PhotoPass digital photos captured during the event are included with your ticket. Of course, it's always special to be in the park with limited capacity and after hours. Unlike Cinderella, you won't need to rush off at the stroke of midnight as you will still have another full hour until the festivities come to an end.

    Well, Sarah, while this might not be the answer you were hoping for, I hope the information is still helpful. Let us know of any other questions you might have about the evening. Here's wishing you a most magical evening at the Happiest Place on Earth.
