Disneyland doubles the number of Sweethearts, Villains and Star Wars evenings


Disneyland to double the number of limited-time out-of-hours events in 2022 as nightly Valentine’s Day, Disney Villains and Star Wars nights return to Anaheim theme park after extended shutdown coronavirus has disrupted the schedule in 2020 and 2021.

Sweethearts’ Nite will take place on February 1, 3, 8, 10 and 14 at Disneyland. Villains Nite takes place March 8-10 at Disney California Adventure. Star Wars Nite will take place May 3, 4 and 27 at Disneyland.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, December 9 for the Sweethearts events and January 11 for the Villains and Star Wars events.

Disneyland will increase the number of nightlife parties from five in 2020 to 10 in 2022. For 2022, Disneyland has doubled the number of Villains Nites, more than doubled the number of Sweetheart dates and tripled the number of Star Wars Nites.

So far, Disneyland has not brought Nite back from the 80s and Pixar Nite from 2020. Villains Nite is moving from April 2020 to March 2022 – taking over the niche once occupied by Pixar Nite. Star Wars Nite moves from October 2020 to dates around May 4 – the unofficial commemoration day for the space opera saga.

The separate Disneyland After Dark admission events offer special nightly entertainment, character meet and greet opportunities, and reduced wait times for limited-capacity parties.

Revelers can mingle with daily visitors three hours before the event, which lasts an additional four hours. Sweethearts’ Nite and Villains Nite mix-in starts at 5 p.m. while Star Wars Nite mix-in starts at 6 p.m.

Sweetheart Nites will feature a Valentine-themed fireworks display and projection show, photo ops with couples of Disney characters, jazz music on the Mark Twain Riverboat, a dance party with DJ and a royal ball.

Villains Nites will feature a cabaret-style song and dance show titled “The Cauldron,” Ursula’s Seaside Sing-a-long, an Underworld DJ dance party in the backdrop of the Hollywood Land studio, and photo ops with the villains of Disney and their henchmen.

Star Wars Nites will feature galaxy-themed fireworks, far, far away, the First Order March with Captain Phasma and his elite stormtroopers, photo ops with Star Wars characters and the evening dancing Galactic DJ.

Ticket prices for separate entry Disneyland After Dark events start at $ 114 for Sweethearts’ Nite, $ 119 for Villains Nite, and $ 134 for Star Wars Nite.

Disneyland was forced to cancel Villains Nite in April 2020 and Star Wars Nite in October 2020 and all Disneyland After Dark events in 2021 due to the closure of parks against coronaviruses. Tickets previously purchased for Villains Nite or Star Wars Nite events in 2020 can be exchanged for the same events in 2022.
