Rise of the Resistance Will Not Be Included in Disneyland ‘Star Wars Nite’ Upcharge Event; Tickets on Sale Now

Tickets for Disneyland’s Star Wars Nite upcharge event are now on sale for Annual Passholders with ticket sales opening to the general public tomorrow, February 20th.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Disneyland themed upcharge nights, they are a time where the park generally goes all-out with theming, entertainment, merchandise, and more. In the past, Disney has done themed decade nights with special fireworks and entertainment, but one themed night that just went on sale has been on the eye of many Star Wars fans since it was announced. Here’s how Disney describes the event:

Travel from Tomorrowland to Batuu and back as lands and “planets” converge for an otherworldly adventure like none other!

This summer, Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite, a separately ticketed after-hours event, will grant Guests of all ages special access to all of Disneyland Park—including character encounters, fireworks, photo ops, dancing, event-themed menu selections, entertainment, limited-release merchandise, attractions, commemorative keepsakes, décor and more.

The journey begins at Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland and culminates at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to celebrate Batuu’s Twin Moons Eclipse Day—a rare phenomenon that occurs every few decades when the planet’s 2 moons momentarily align.

Availability is limited—don’t miss this opportunity to be immersed in a Star Wars experience you’ll never forget!

Did you catch that? Disney’s newest and most immersive attraction to date is excluded from their themed Star Wars up charge event.

Due to standard required maintenance time, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will not be available to guests paying the $109 admission fee. Of course, that’s not to say that there won’t be fun to be had, just not on the hottest attraction in town.
