Character Guide: Disneyland After Dark: Throwback Nite

For Disneyland After Dark: Throwback Nite there were at TON of characters to see and experience magical moments with. Unlike other events and days in the parks, the approach to the character experience was different for this. Instead of waiting in lines and getting a quick photo and then moving on, many of the characters were instead spending their time playing with guests. This involved storytelling, games, dancing, and lots of other fun and random things throughout the night. Yes, there were a couple of characters that had the traditional meet and greet experience with a line, for the most part it was more about having a good time with characters over having the perfect picture. In some ways, this led to some pictures that were even more perfect than the the staged photo opportunities with Disney friends.

The characters were all pulled from the past and ranged from princesses to astronauts. They could be found in most of the lands throughout Disneyland. Below is a video that shows where each group of characters could be found throughout the night at Disneyland After Dark: Throwback Nite.
