    Tickets on sale for Disneyland’s first Sweethearts’ Nite

    If you’ve got a romantic soul and you love Disneyland, you might want to know about this: Tickets went on sale this morning to Disneyland’s first Sweethearts’ Nite, which will feature lots of special events for romantic couples a week before Valentine’s Day.

    Those who can’t get enough of these Disneyland After Dark events take note: There will also be a retro 90’s Nite coming up on March 7, and tickets are also on sale for that one.

    Here’s what you want to know about the Disneyland Valentine’s Event:

    • Sweethearts’ Nite takes place on Feb. 7 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
    • People must buy a special $99 ticket (adults or kids) to get in. Kids under 3 get in free. Tickets for annual passholders went on sale Nov. 27; the general public can buy Nov. 28.
    • Ticket holders can arrive as early as 6 p.m. though the event doesn’t start until 9 p.m.
    • This will likely sell out, so don’t wait around if you want to buy tickets.
    • The event features Mickey and Minnie Mouse and their cartoon love story.
    • There will be an “Imperial Ball” set up near It’s a Small World where park goers can dance with beloved Disney characters. Elsewhere, there will be live piano music, DJ dance parties and a steel drum band.
    • Disney will bring out special couples characters for meet-and-greets.
    • Take photos against special backdrops such as Ariel and Eric’s moonlit rowboat ride, the lantern scene from “Tangled, “Aladdin and Jasmine’s magic carpet ride and more. The ticket includes free digital photo downloads.
    • Some attractions will be open late for riding, including It’s a Small World, Storybook Land Canal Boats, Space Mountain and more.
    • You guessed it: Special food and merchandise will be available for purchase.
    • Ticket holders get a souvenir lanyard, credential and map of happenings.
    • People are encouraged to dress up in an outfit inspired by a Disney character (subject to Disneyland costume rules)
    • People who’ve done these events say it’s a good way to experience Disneyland with smaller crowds.

    was at universal to checkout xmas at hogwarts yesterday and its crazy that while Disney is almost always at capacity, universal was empty

    you just see the characters like doc brown and marilyn manson standing in spots with no one even wanting to take pics with them

    no wonder they close at 5pm but it is crazy in practically the middle of the holidays, this should be their peak times

    once star wars land opens, they're gon' be even more empty

    its smart to start their own run/5k series though since disney cancelled their rundisney in anaheim

    its awesome and its probably the best theme-ing they do and the nightitme projection show is cool with the faux-snow at night but it's still a small area that you can go through in about half an hour if the lines were walkthroughs like yesterday (you actually need maybe less than half a day to get through the whole park :lol: )

    one thing they have the edge is the interaction in hogwarts with the wands and "magic" you can do with them but that also requires buying an expensive wand

    once star wars land opens though, they are about to show how interaction is really done, what I have been reading sounds insane where you need the disney play app and that gives you status' and logs your history with the rides and the bartender or storm troopers might question or talk to you about what you just did

    its sounding insane

    Disney Gift Card Collector’s Series Honors 90 Years of Mickey Mouse

    [​IMG]

    Justin Hamana, Graphic Designer with Walt Disney Imagineering, developed the concept of a crystal-encrusted Disney Gift Card to honor this milestone anniversary. Specialists from Swarovski took the task all the way to Austria and developed a brand-new way to adhere crystals to the entire face of the card, something that had never been done before. The card looks incredible, but what struck me the first time I held it in my hand was how substantial it feels. All 5,000 cards are made with a metal core, encased in a protective plastic, and encrusted with over 2,500 premium Swarovski crystals. Not to mention a custom box almost as stunning as the card itself. Ready for display, the magnetic-closure box is the first to carry the Disney Gift Card Collector’s Series insignia and includes a vellum certificate describing the grandeur of the card.

    You may have seen some coverage of the Destination D event last weekend where a select number of these cards were made available to D23 members in attendance. But now it’s your turn. If you find yourself at Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort, you can take one of these limited-edition cards home for yourself. For $300, you receive one of the only 5,000 premium gift cards produced, nestled in a box ready for display, loaded with $90 redeemable for practically all things Disney — from Theme Park tickets, resort stays, Disney vacations and dining, and all the Mickey merchandise you could imagine at Disney locations across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The Disney Gift Card Collector’s Series will be available for purchase starting December 4, 2018 at the locations below (while supplies last.)

    yup

    :lol:

    you're pretty much paying $210 for a mickey swarovski card

    being limited to 5000 pieces probably means you can sell it for $1k out there somewhere

    I'm imagining trying to shove that thing in my wallet. I'd mess around and have swarwhatever crystals falling out of my pocket everywhere.

    thats why they added a bar code on it instead of a strip like other gift cards, they scan it instead of swiping or else all those crystals are gon' fall off :lol:

    i wanna see how the line is though

    if there are still some left after i get off work, i'd get one

    AP re up in March y’all...Thinking I should hold off until after Star Wars opens...Just so I’m not tempted to be down there when they first open to deal with the crowds...

    AP holders can't go in star wars land until August 27 or something like that, not sure how it works, but I think were blocked out from star wars land for a while after opening.

    unless they go ahead with the entrance fee to SWland the first few months where you get a wrist tag like halloween parties, i don't know how they're going to prevent ap from entering that land

    if they scanned every ticket that wants to get in there it's gon' be a disaster and queue gon' be a couple of hours just to enter

    and if they block out ap members from SWland while not blocking them from DL or DCA, a lot of members are gon' be pissed including myself

    Was reading a thing were they were considering using a max pass system to scan tickets, it's all speculative, though. I could see them doing something like this knowing how well the system actually works.

    i dont eat popcorn either but there is an option for caramel corn which i love but i try to avoid it as much possible since there are so many better alternatives in and outside the park

    but everything disney is a collectible from the beginning and they know how to take advantage by making new buckets every season and events

    hell i am not even gon use it but i still want that damn thanos gauntlet sipper
