    Hello! Planning to attend the Disneyland After Dark event on January 18th and just want to make sure that we can enter park 2 hours prior to event start time. I want to make a dinner reservation for 6pm and the event starts at 8pm. Thank you!

    Hi, Cindy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!

    I am beyond excited that you are attending the first Disneyland After Dark event in 2018! The Throwback Nite theme is right up my alley because I love everything vintage, especially classic Disneyland Park. The event on January 18, 2018, begins at 8:00 p.m., but your Disneyland After Dark ticket allows you entry into Disneyland Park two hours before the event starts. So, absolutely make that dinner reservation, but you might want to plan for just a bit after 6:00 p.m. to allow you time to enter the park, pick up your special lanyard and credential, and make your way to the restaurant.

    Also, keep in mind that downloads of all your PhotoPass photos taken during this special event are included with your ticket! So make sure to stop by all the special photo locations set up specifically for this event. And if you need help completing your vintage-inspired look, the Disney Dress Shop has you covered.

    I hope you have a truly magical time at the Happiest Place on Earth this coming January!
