After Hours events are gaining popularity around the Disney Parks. They are more exclusive, less of a crowd, limited wait times, and provide unique opportunities that are not always offered during regular operating hours. Disneyland has just rolled out with a few different themed After Dark nights, including an 80’s night. So fun! This latest one is just in time for Valentine’s day. It’s the Disneyland After Dark Sweethearts Nite. Special for all you love birds out there. It will be taking place on February 12th and 13th. So popular February 13th sold out already! There are still some tickets available for February 12th though. So don’t miss out.
Tickets to this event cost $109.00 plus tax. The event runs from 9 pm thru 1 am, giving you plenty of time to enjoy some of the unique offerings and entertainment for this exclusive event. You can enter the park as early as 6 pm, but 9 pm is when the park closes specifically for after dark ticketed guests only. This could be the perfect date night! Who can put a price on love?!
There is some great entertainment in store for the After Dark Sweetheart Nite. How about dancing the night away to some of the best love songs at a dance party. Or a moonlight cruise might interest you. Let nostalgia bring you back to the year 1955 as the Golden Horse Shoe is transformed into Walt and Lillian’s 30th-anniversary “Tempus Fugit Celebration”, just like the one they had just before Disneyland opened. Fun fact, you know Walt even took dance lessons to surprise his wife and dance with her at the party. How romantic is that!
If you also love to dance there will be a Royal Ball with some of your favorite Disney couples in attendance. Perhaps they can give you some pointers. Don’t miss out on the famous couples’ character encounters. None other than Minnie and Mickey will be meeting with guests. Some couples you don’t have the chance to see as much like Hercules and Meg, or Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen will also be greeting guests.
With all that dancing and rubbing elbows with royalty, you may become a little famished. Disneyland has a special spread in store for the Sweethearts Nite After Dark event. The Plaza Inn will be hosting a special Sweethearts Dining package, a prix fixe 3-course meal consisting of Cesar salad, breadsticks, spaghetti and meatballs, drink and a cannoli to sweeten things up. Is this giving anyone else a Lady and the Tramp vibe? I’m swooning already! I highly recommend a reservation for this. If sweets and treats are more your style, pucker up for this churro at the Tomorrow Land Cart or how about a Sweet-Cherry Nova Milkshake you can find over at the Galactic Grill.
There will also be some great photo opportunities special for this event to check out. The photos are included too as digital downloads. Take the memories home with you! Check out the exclusive merchandise for the event as well. The Minnie and Mickey pin set is so adorable. There will also be a Jewelry Crislu trunk show at the Emporium to dazzle you, where you can meet the designer and get a free gift with purchase. If the night gets a little chilly the Sweethearts After Hours sweatshirt would be perfect to wrap up in.
Last but certainly not least the spectacular Fireworks Extravaganza show is sure to delight all your hearts and fire things up! There will be so much to do and see, and create the perfect backdrop for a night full of romance! “So this is love, so this is what makes life divine”. -Cinderella
