Disneyland After Dark: 80’s Nite was a nostalgia-filled blast and they certainly allowed up to celebrate the 80’s the right way, with the return of Videopolis, nostalgic characters coming out to meet guests and exclusive merchandise.

Disney definitely pulled out all of the stops last night with bringing characters from yesteryear including Roger Rabbit, Huey, Dewey, and Louie from DuckTales and even bringing Captain Rex (RX-24) from the original Star Tours out of retirement. It’s safe to say that all of the characters were excited for 80’s Nite as even Mickey Mouse showed up dressed up in his Mousercise gear to celebrate the decade with us.
