Back in November, the Disneyland Resort announced the first of several Disneyland After Dark events to be held in 2018. With Throwback Nite happening this Thursday (and tickets still available), Disneyland has released more details about the event.
Disneyland After Dark: Throwback Nite happens this Thursday, January 18th at Disneyland Park from 8:00pm to 1:00am and requires a separate $95 ticket.
The event celebrates Disneyland of the 1950s and 60s and throughout the Park, music will set the scene. At the Main Street Train Station, a Four Seasons tribute band will perform; in the Central Plaza (hub), a DJ will sample music from throughout the Park, plus take requests and dedications; a live swing and jazz band will perform near “it’s a small world;” and a piano player and singer will perform the hits of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and more aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat.
Special food items will also be available, including Golden-Fried Pepper Jack Mac & Cheese Bites topped with Walt’s Chili at Stage Door Cafe, Kalua Pork over Ginger-Lemongrass Jasmine Rice with spicy hoisin sauce and pineapple salsa at Bengal Barbecue, Chicken Pot Pie in a Bread Bowl at Royal Street Veranda, Dreamsicle Mickey Beignets at the Mint Julep Bar, and a Hot Fudge Cake Sundae at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Company.
The Disneyland merchandise team has also come up with something special for the event, including t-shirts, ornaments and tumblers which will be available at Le Petit Chalet in Fantasyland and Disney Showcase on Main Street USA.
In addition, most attractions will be open during the event, characters will be wandering the park, and the skies will light up with the Fantasy in the Sky fireworks, which were first presented in 1958.
To get into the spirit of the event, Disneyland is encouraging guests to dress in their “spiffy duds and come dressed to impress.”
Tickets are still available on the Disneyland website, at the ticket booth, or by calling (714) 781-INFO.
