Disneyland first opened to the public in July of 1955 in Anaheim, Calif. It was the first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland Resort and the only one designed and built under the supervision of Walt Disney.
For 62 years, Disneyland has been the go-to attraction for many locals and tourists. I mean, who could resist the adorable Disney characters greeting you throughout the park, the fun-filled rides, the delish street food, oh, and their date nights! Wait, huh...?
Yes, date nights. Date nights were totally a thing at Disneyland during the 1950s and 1960s. The "Date Nite at Disney" fliers, according to Pop Sugar, advertised dancing, romantic rides, and strolling singers, for an adults-only event that took place from 9 p.m. until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
Now, Disney is bringing back this popular attraction as Disneyland After Dark.
Just like the good ole' days, guests will receive a vintage-inspired park map and are ~super~ encouraged to dress up according to the '50s and '60s for the ultimate retro experience.
"Step back in time to the ‘50s and ‘60s for a taste of the classic after-dark experience at Disneyland," notes the Disney Blog. "Come dressed in your best to enjoy the Happiest Place on Earth under a million twinkling lights, swinging to the tune of the bands and enjoying your favorite rides in the cool moonlight ‘till the clock strikes 1 a.m.!"
The throwback event, which includes rides, dancing, music, food, and fireworks, kicks off from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. on January 18. For more dates and tickets information, go here.
