Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours Party is Announced and We are Not Surprised

Yep, we knew this was coming. Just as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has magically turned into Boo Bash now we see that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will also be an after hours only event called Disney Very Merriest.

Yes, folks, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World is being replaced this holiday season, with a new celebration, Disney Very Merriest After Hours, will debut on Nov. 8 and run on select nights through Dec. 21. The Magic Kingdom celebration will offer four hours of holiday fun from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., however guests will be allowed into the park beginning at 7 p.m. This will be a separately ticketed event just like Disney’s Halloween festivities, with tickets going on sale in August. Guests will NOT require a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation — only a ticket for Disney Very Merriest After Hours will be required.

The after-hours celebration will feature character sightings, holiday music and decor, festive food and treats, holiday-themed attraction overlays and Cinderella Castle projections, snow (or lovingly known as snoap) on Main Street, and Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks. And guests can partake in ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select beverages and holiday treats — included with the price of admission. Specialty items will also be available for additional purchase.


  • Holiday treats at designated spots throughout the Magic Kingdom
  • Guest-only access to over 20 Magic Kingdom attractions (with select attractions featuring holiday overlays)
  • Ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select beverages are included with price of admission
  • Disney Character appearances around the park
  • “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks”
  • Holiday projections on Cinderella Castle
  • “Snow” falling on Main Street, U.S.A.
  • A special and festive atmosphere created through decorations, music, and lighting
  • Specialty food and beverages will be available for extra purchase
  • Unique photo opportunities

Again, it is not the same but moving forward in a positive direction is always encouraging and we are sure that this holiday season is going to be amazing as always!
