Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Disney fans! That may sound odd as we are still in the month of August, but Walt Disney World Resort is already sharing some merry news about the holiday season on the horizon for our favorite Disney Park! This year, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park was replaced by “Disney After Hours Boo Bash“. When the tickets became available there was a scramble to get them and Guests we struggling to get through on the phones. The party reviews have been mixed and with Guests paying a lot more for this year’s special-ticketed event than before, even the most die-hard Disney fans aren’t thrilled about it. Disney has now shifted gears to talk about their Disney Christmas party. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park is being replaced with “Disney Very Merriest After Hours“. Here’s the good news, however! Disney has announced the return of special holiday-themed fireworks for the party, as well as the return of a holiday parade. The new Christmas party tickets are currently on sale. To our surprise, and unlike years past, none of the “Disney Very Merriest After Hours” party dates are sold out yet and there doesn’t seem to be a scramble to get them.
As shared by Disney: “Disney Very Merriest After Hours: Celebrate the holidays in the very merriest way at a new event featuring a themed parade, fireworks, Character sightings, and more! Disney Very Merriest After Hours will take place from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. on select nights, from November 8 through December 21, 2021. Ticket holders will be admitted to Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7:00 p.m. on the valid date of their ticket, giving them even more time to enjoy Park favorites before the event begins—including the new Disney Enchantment nighttime spectacular! These dated tickets do not require an additional day theme Park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme Park reservation.”
Event Dates Include:
- November: 8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 28, 30
- December: 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 17, 19, 21
If visiting Magic Kingdom Park and hoping to see special Christmas fireworks and a holiday parade with Disney characters, you’ll need a party ticket to enjoy the show. “Disney Very Merriest After Hours” will include the nighttime spectacular Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks and the special holiday-themed parade Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade which will include the favorite toy soldier march and end with the holly, jolly Santa Claus!
Event ticket prices for Disney Very Merriest After Hours at Magic Kingdom range from $169 to $249 depending on the date you plan to enjoy the party. We believe what is keeping the party tickets from selling out extremely quick is that the 2019 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tickets started at $94. The huge price increase this year has us all a little unsure if it’s really worth it. What are your thoughts? Is the price worth it for the 4 hours event at Magic Kingdom? Will you be purchasing tickets to Disney Very Merriest After Hours special event?
