Nice to see some of these ads in non-microfilm form!

It is my dream to reinstate Date Nite and/or the idea of Disneyland At Night being something special and classy, not just... In the dark. And Fantasmic. The idea of legitimate, thematically appropriate bands at Disneyland thrills me to no end.

I remember the fire dancers and what I thought was a swell luau...and I increasingly feel like I dreamed it, so thanks for this!

"Disneyland After Dark"...sigh.

Sadness... I missed this era by two decades but "Disneyland After Dark" has always taunted me with the idea of cozy summer evenings watching fantastic, thematic bands with my best gal by my side and one of those ridiculous hats with the huge feathers in them. There's just a liveliness and classiness to the whole concept that I'd love to see brought back...
