What a special treat Disneyland After Dark was! First of all, I have to thank security guard Eddie who went above and beyond to help me enter the park. I must've looked like a lost pet because he spotted me amongst a sea of Disney fans looking for the entrance. Not only did he greet me with the warmest smile, he led me to park and beyond! So, if you're reading this Eddie from El Salvador (I remembered your name tag) THANK YOU!
Upon entrance into Disneyland, first thing you feel is a rush of energy because the live DJ set is pumping a mix of the 80's, 90's and today with bursts of electronic dance music! It felt like the grad night I never had! My hubby Alex and I held hands walking down Main Street, which is a special place for us because at the edge of Main Street and Sleeping Beauty's Castle is where Alex proposed to me when we were 19 years old! Anyway, we were standing in line to get our "Light Side & Dark Side" churros when we met this little cutie and her mommy & daddy. (See picture below)
Disneyland After Dark proved to be just as magical for this couple from Pasadena! He proposed to his girlfriend as they were taking a picture with Darth Vader. Watch her excitement and pretty ring! (below)
The fireworks display with the Star Wars score was pretty epic! (below)
Last but definitely not least, towards the end of the night, this surprise prompted all of us to just stop, stare and follow! Check this out. (below)
