During the event, fireflies were collected by doing normal park activities. The fireflies were "turned in" to the Gloaming Gate for prizes based on the number of fireflies collected since their last prize was awarded. The Gloaming Gate's infobox has a reset timer that indicates when more fireflies are released to be collected by players.
Gloaming Gate consists of eight panels in eight sections, which can each be restored by turning in a certain amount of fireflies. When each one of the eight sections is completed, the respective prize is awarded. Panels and sections are restored in a fixed order, and as such prizes are also awarded in a fixed order. Each prize must be obtained before fireflies can be contributed to obtaining the next.
Upon selecting the Gloaming Gate, the options for "Help", "Turn In Fireflies", "Buy", and "Info" were displayed.
"Help" opened up two tabs which provide information on the Firefly Festival rules and prizes.
"Rules" offered short descriptions of each of the aspects of the Firefly Festival. Information on each of the prizes is accessed through the "Prize" tab.
The option to "Turn In Fireflies" is only activated when a player has collected enough fireflies for the next reward. Besides that, an animation would occur on that specific reward when there are enough fireflies to be traded in to receive it.
