    If I purchase tickets to the "After Dark Event" do I also have to buy a regular park admission ticket? Or is that event ticket all I need?

    Hello, Mary!

    Welcome to planDisney! I attended my first Disneyland After Dark event last year, and it was so much fun! My family dressed up in themed costumes and enjoyed the unique entertainment, Characters, and food available during the party. We had a great time!

    Separate theme park tickets are not needed for Disneyland After Dark parties unless you want to visit a theme park before the event begins. The two upcoming Disneyland After Dark parties, Star Wars Nite and Pride Night, take place from 9:00 PM - 1:00 AM, and event tickets include admission to Disneyland Park as early as 6:00 PM. A separate ticket needs to be purchased if you want to visit Disneyland Park before that time. If not, you should be good to go!

    I am not sure which Disneyland After Dark you are attending, but both parties will be a blast! Star Wars Nite includes sightings of beloved Star Wars Characters, a galactic dance party, and a lightsaber meet-up with Rey! Guests attending Pride Nite can experience Pride Nite Fireworks, country line dancing at the Golden Horseshoe, and a dance club. I suggest making a list of your must-do experiences, as there are so many things to choose from! 

    Mary, have a wonderful time at your Disneyland After Dark party! I hope you make many special memories there!

    Magic Happens!
