New year, new events at Disneyland! Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance just opened at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland on January 17, and today we heard that Disneyland is hosting a special event dedicated to all things Star Wars! The Star Wars night at Disneyland will take you to a galaxy far, far away at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite is a separate ticket event that invites guests to experience Disneyland park after hours with exclusive entertainment, special character meet-and-greets, a Star Wars fireworks spectacular, and so much more. It’s taking place on August 27, the evening of the first day of Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.
Here are all of the details that Disneyland has released so far:

Even though Disneyland didn’t mention anything about Galaxy’s Edge in the announcement of Star Wars Nite, the event does give guests access to Disneyland after park closing. So we wouldn’t be surprised if later Disneyland announced that those who purchase tickets to the Star Wars after-hours event will be able to ride the two attractions in Galaxy’s Edge – Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and the highly popular Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. We will update Inside the Magic with more information — including the attractions available to experience at the event and the event ticket prices — once Disneyland shares more details.
