The Happiest Place on Earth transforms into the most romantic for Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts Nite at Disneyland park. Love will definitely be in the air during this special, after-park hours event, which includes unique entertainment, special food, one-of-a-kind photo opportunities, collectible merchandise and more.
While the event on Feb. 13 is sold out, there are still tickets available for you to take your special someone on Feb. 12! Sweethearts Nite takes place from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Disneyland park. Here’s what we have planned for your Disney date night:
Hop aboard the Mark Twain for a moonlight cruise. If you’re looking to get in the groove, boogie down at a love song-themed dance party. For a nostalgic treat, Golden Horseshoe will be transformed into “Tempus Fugit Celebration,” paying tribute to Walt and Lillian Disney’s 30th anniversary party held just four days before Disneyland Park opened in 1955 (presented by D23: The official Disney Fan Club).
Enjoy encounters with darling Disney couples, including Princess Tiana and Naveen, Hercules and Megara, and of course, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.
Royal Princess Ball
Waltz beside the world’s best-loved Disney couples at a glitzy royal ball, featuring Aurora and Prince Phillip, Jasmine and Aladdin, Cinderella and Prince Charming and others!
