    I am a Magic Key holder and also attending Star Wars Nite. Can I go early w/ a reservation into the park and there’s a Star Wars Nite badge pick up for those already in the park? And if wearing a costume, I would have to bring it and change inside at 6pm?

    A warm welcome from all of us at planDisney to you, Janell. Thanks for stopping by to ask us this question. I'm so glad to hear that you are a Magic Key holder and hope that you've been enjoying your year of magic thus far. 

    I'm even more excited to hear that you will be attending Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite. I just returned from attending this event and I am thrilled to share my experience with you. I'm a fellow Magic Key holder and also had a theme park reservation for the day so I could enjoy both parks before the after-hours event started.

    If you are in Disneyland Park before the event check-in begins, you won't have to leave and wait in line at the main entrance for the event. There is indeed a place to check in for the event inside the park. Event check-in is located at the Starcade in Tomorrowland just outside the exit for Hyperspace Mountain. I checked in for the event here and it was a breeze. The event merchandise is also located in this area which makes it super convenient.

    It will be best to wait until 6:00 p.m. to change into your costume. Make sure to review the costume guidelines. I hope that you are planning to take part in the Fans of the Force Costume Cavalcade. I enjoyed seeing so many people in their galactic garb. And don't forget to head to Mickey's Toontown to pick up your commemorative patch that's available to Magic Key holders during the event.

    Janell, I hope this has been helpful as you prepare for your galactic adventure. Here's wishing you a magical time during this out-of-this-world after-hours event. 

    May the Force be with you,
