    I am planning to visit Disneyland Park in Anaheim on March 7th and notice there is gonna be an early park closure at 8pm on that day. I was wondering if there will still be the fireworks show at night with the video showcase displayed on the castle?

    Welcome to planDisney, Anandini! I'm so happy you are here and thank you for trusting us to answer your vacation planning questions.

    Anandini, I'm sure you are counting down the days until your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort! I'm so excited for you to experience all the magic awaiting you there. It's such a special place for me and my family; I'm sure you are going to make incredible, unforgettable memories, too. 

    Now, Anandini, you correctly noticed that there is a special event taking place in Disneyland Park on March 7th. On that day, Disneyland Resort will host its after-hours event, Disneyland After Dark: Disney Channel Nite. It is a separately-ticketed event that provides one-of-a-kind theming, decor, live entertainment, specialty food and beverage items, unique character sightings, and more! At the moment I'm writing you, I see that special event tickets are still available if this is something you are interested in attending!

    With that in mind, I do want to share with you that Disneyland Park will be closing to Guests who do not have Disneyland After Dark: Disney Channel Nite tickets at 8:00 P.M. Unfortunately, Mickey's Mix Magic with Projections is currently scheduled for a showtime beginning at 9:30 P.M. on that night, so without the special event ticket in hand, I'm afraid you would otherwise miss this particular nighttime spectacular. Showtimes may change, so I recommend viewing the Hours and Events Calendar in the days leading up to your visit. 

    Anandini, you may have already considered this but many Guests often opt for a Park Hopper ticket if their visit aligns with one of the special event dates. This ticket type will allow you to cross between the two theme parks during eligible Park Hopper hours, so even if Disneyland Park is closed for the party at 8:00 P.M on your visit date, you can enjoy the offerings at Disney California Adventure Park as long as there is capacity! 

    I hope these are some helpful tips for now, Anandini. If we can lend any other recommendations as you prepare for your upcoming trip, please feel welcome to stop by planDisney again and share your questions with us.

    Wishing you all the magic,
