Can You Wear Costumes to Star Wars Nite?

Yes! Disneyland wants to create a safe, comfortable environment for all fans, so there are a few rules in place.

  • Costumes must be considered family-friendly—nothing violent or objectionable, so use your judgment.
  • You can’t carry anything that resembles an actual weapon—plastic lightsabers are an exception.
  • Nothing pointy or sharp on your costumes.
  • No full-length costumes that can drag on the ground—capes must not go below the waist.
  • Guests cannot pose for pictures or sign autographs for other guests (but feel free to take photos with your friends and family).

Costume masks are not permitted for any guests over the age of 14. Guests 13 and younger may wear costume masks as long as they don’t cover the entire face and leave the eyes visible.

It’s also noted that these rules only apply to Disneyland After Hours. During regular park hours, regular rules apply.

Will All Attractions Be Open During Star Wars Nite?

Most attractions and offerings should be open during 2024 Disneyland After Hours: Star Wars Nite, including the rides of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. However, the following rides and lands were closed at the end of regular park hours:

  • Critter Country
  • Mickey’s Toontown
  • Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
  • Sailing Ship Columbia

Another important note here: Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be subject to availability throughout the night, so it’s not guaranteed that it’ll be open if you’re looking to ride.
