    I’m planning on going to disney land on January 25, which the website states Disneyland will close early at 8pm for a ticketed event, will we be kicked out of the park with the general admission ticket?

    Hi Dannya,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney! I'm happy to help as you prepare for your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort.

    Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts’ Nite is a separately ticketed event scheduled for select dates in January and February 2024. Love will be in the air beginning January 23 as well as on the date of your particular visit. While you'll be free to enjoy the magic of Disneyland Park with your standard theme park ticket, guests will be escorted out once the clock strikes 8 p.m. and normal operating hours end. Unfortunately, you won't be able to remain in the park without an event ticket once Sweethearts' Nite begins, but the fun doesn't have to end when you exit the gates!

    If you have Park Hopper tickets you should be able to hop on over to Disney California Adventure Park, subject to capacity, to round out your day. But not to worry if you only plan to experience 1-park per day during your visit. Enjoy a stroll through the Downtown Disney District where you can shop, grab a bite to eat and soak up the ambiance. Better yet, why not head over for a snack or a  nightcap at Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill at Disneyland Hotel? The tiki torches flickering along the patio coupled with the pool views will certainly leave you feeling transported to paradise. I enjoyed the vibes with some of my fellow panelists there last year and it's one of my favorite memories.

    I think you're still set for an enchanting visit, but should you prefer to enjoy a longer day at Disneyland Park you can consider modifying your existing theme park reservation to another date. Just be sure to check the reservation availability calendar before making any changes.

    Dannya, I hope this was helpful. If you have any additional questions please don't hesitate to come back and see us again. 

    Wishing you magic and memories,
