Disney’s After Dark returning to Disneyland in California multiple events have been announced to take place through the year. The first being “Sweethearts’ Nite” taking place on February 1st, 3rd, 8th, 10th and 14th being themed around various Disney couples just in time for Valentine’s Day. The second planned event is “Villains’ Nite” taking place on March 8th and 10th and will revolve around various Disney villains. And finally “Star Wars Nite” taking place May 3rd, 4th and 27th and revolving around Star Wars.

The first day of Sweethearts’ Nite came the other day and of course you saw classic couples Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse (Main Street U.S.A.) as well as Beast & Belle (Red Rose Tavern).

But instead of seeing other popular couples like Cinderella & Prince Charming or Aladdin & Jasmine what came next were some major surprises that almost nobody expected…

Some rare couples like Stitch & Angel (Tomorrowland) and Naveen & Tiana (New Orleans Square)…

But even rarer appearances from Mary Poppins & Burt (Train Station), Bernard & Miss Bianca from The Rescuers (New Orleans) and Milo & Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire (Tomorrowland) all made appearances.

It was quite the spurs seeing some of these characters after a long time, especially characters like Milo & Kida. Ever since the Disney Parks closed in 2020 and reopened within the last year the appearances from Disney characters has been very limited. As time goes on we will of course see more and more characters return, but some of these characters hadn’t been seen for quite some time.

There are still four more dates scheduled for the Sweethearts’ Nite events so it is possible that we may see even more classic and even obscure Disney couples appear to share their love with all the park guests and attendees. 

Do you plan on visiting the parks on any of these dates?
