Disneyland After Dark wants guests to get dapper at the park – Orange County Register
Disneyland is going old school.
Refashioning a popular promotion from its roots in the 1950s and ’60s, Disneyland announced Monday, Nov. 13, its first “Disneyland After Dark” event will be a throwback night to the days when people walked around the theme park dressed in fancy suits and poodle skirts.
On Jan. 18, the separately ticketed after-hours event invites visitors to dress in their Sunday best and listen to big concert bands until 1 a.m. at Disneyland.
Disneyland After Dark is the first in a series of after-hours events held on certain dates next year at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Other “nites” in the series will have various themes, Disneyland officials said.
“Each Disneyland After Dark ‘nite’ will be a can’t-miss experience featuring specialty entertainment, themed food, collectible merchandise and more,” said Erin Glover, editorial content director at Disneyland, on the park’s official blog site.
