Party Mix-In

Each Star Wars Nite will begin with a pre-party mix-in at Disneyland park from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. PT before the party officially begins. During the party, Guests will have the opportunity to ride popular attractions after regular park hours (often with less wait times)! Guest admission also includes souvenir keepsakes such as a Star Wars Nite credential and event guide map, plus unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos taken throughout the event.

Tickets Go On Sale Soon

For this event, Inspire Magic Key holders will have the first opportunity to purchase pre-sale tickets for Star Wars Nite. Those tickets go on sale on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2024 (no earlier than 9 a.m. PT). Those Guests can only purchase a select amount of pre-sale tickets. Then, on Wednesday, February 21 and Thursday, February 22, all Magic Key holders will have the opportunity to purchase from a select amount of pre-sale tickets. On Friday, February 23 (no earlier than 9 a.m. PT), tickets will go on sale to the general public. Tickets are limited and subject to availability.

New “Notify Me” Online Queue Option

For the first time, if you’re waiting in the online queue to purchase Star Wars Nite tickets, you may have the option to be digitally notified when it’s your time to enter the ticket store. 

To participate, once in the queue, choose the “notify me” option and enter your email address. You’ll receive an email letting you know it’s your turn to return to the waiting room in order to enter the ticket store site. From the time your turn begins, Guests will have 10 minutes to use the link to return to the site from when their turn begins, or they will lose their place in line and will need to re-join the queue at the back of the line. The link will no longer be valid once their turn has ended or after they have used the link to return to the site, whether they purchase tickets or not. If this happens, guests will need to re-join the queue at the back of the line. Guests should check spam and/or junk folders to ensure the initial email confirmation is sent.


The event runs from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and costs $159 (Ages 3+).

Final Thoughts

This looks like a really fun event for those who are Star Wars fans. I am not necessarily one, so I don’t know if there is enough draw for someone like me to attend this event, but that’s where I want you to chime in. Let me know….is this event something you would want to attend?
