Lots of popular rides are open during the party, and because the party is limited-capacity, wait times are usually much lower than normal.

Time to Ride This at Night!

Disney has announced that Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, Slinky Dog Dash, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and more are going to be open in 2024. Rise of the Resistance will have a standby line during the party.

There will be PhotoPass photographers at the event, and you can find photo ops throughout the park.

Dress Code

Disney encourages people to “get glammed up for the occasion or show off your unique style.” At the 2023 party, we saw lots of people dressed up like Old Hollywood stars!

So cute!

However, Disney reminds everyone to consider forgoing the high heels and wear comfortable shoes instead so your feet don’t hurt during the party.
