RUMOR: Three “Disneyland After Dark” Themed Events Coming to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in 2020

We have a brand new rumor into the newsroom today that says we’ll see three new “Disneyland After Dark” themes in 2020.

To recap, Disneyland After Dark is a special after-hours parks experience featuring unique entertainment, specialty food, collectible merchandise and more. In 2019, Disneyland hosted a few of these “after dark” events, including a Sweethearts Nite, 90s Nite, and Heroes Assemble event at Disney California Adventure. Each night is specifically tailored to the theme and typically runs late into the night.

Today, our sources have indicated that three new themes will be in place for the 2020 version of the event.

  • Disneyland After Dark: 80’s Night
  • Disneyland After Dark: PIXAR Nite at Disney California Adventure Park
  • Disneyland After Dark: Villains Nite at Disney California Adventure Park

While we don’t have the exact dates for the events yet, we expect that Disney will make the announcement for the events in the next month or so. Disney announced the 2019 themes in November 2018.

As always, you should treat this and any rumor as unofficial unless and until Disney confirms our story.

    Those types of rules make it challenging to participate
