*Tickets are nontransferable and nonrefundable. The number of tickets available is limited. Events often sell out early. Tickets are valid only during specific event dates and hours. Prices, entertainment, attractions, experiences, ticket types, entitlements and other event elements subject to change without notice.

At this time the event is only scheduled for April 14, 2017, which is during Star Wars Celebration 2017, but with the word Nights being plural, it sounds like they may begin offering a paid, upcharge event similar to Star Wars Weekends after park closing in the future.  If they don’t OVERSELL it like Villains Unleashed, it could receive positive reviews and continue.  If they have crazy mass crowds, it will end up being a one time event due to negative feedback.

Annual Passholders may receive a $10 discount per ticket.

You can purchase tickets to this event HERE.

I was planning on going to Hollywood Studios that day and seeing Fantasmic that night. Will they still have a Fantasmic show that night, and if so will I be able to see it with my regular park ticket. We aren't Star Wars people, so this isn't an event we'd like to attend.


Thursday 23rd of February 2017

No evening entertainment for guests who aren't attending the event on April 14

This is typical on the Disney special events. Halloween and xMAS party both do this.

I noticed your post earlier about admission 3 hours earlier into HS. I haven't read anything to that effect. Can you confirm where you saw this? Thanks!

Wow! This looks fun! Is this a ticket on top of admission? That is really pricey for a family. Maybe its like the Christmas and Halloween events. My kids love Star Wars stuff so they would love it!


Thursday 19th of January 2017

Yes, the ticket is for admission to the party only. They do allow entry 3 hours early.
