Even though it was just over a week ago, Halloween 2021 is just a fading memory at Walt Disney World. The Theme Parks are all dressed up for Christmas, and the heart of the holiday season is found at the Magic Kingdom.
Instead of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, this year the special ticketed event will be Disney Very Merriest After Hours. Ticket sales were slow to begin with, but several dates are now sold out. Tickets are no longer available for November 9, 11, 12, 16, and 18. December 21, which is the last Disney Very Merriest After Hours, is sold out as well. It’s interesting to note that as of noon today, tickets are still available for the debut tonight.
Disney Very Merriest After Hours is an hour longer than other Disney After Hours events. It officially runs from 9:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., although ticket holders can enter the Magic Kingdom at 7:00 p.m. If you arrive at 7:00 you do not need a general Theme Park ticket or a Disney Park Pass Reservation.
There are a limited number of tickets sold for the Disney After Hours events, which means shorter lines for the popular rides. There is plenty else that will take place this year. Disney Very Merriest After Hours will host the first full parade at Walt Disney World since March 2020. Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is a Guest favorite, and it will be great to see it once again. Unlike other Disney After Hours events, there will also be fireworks. Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show returns, it debuted in 2019. Guests who arrive at the end of the day will have the opportunity to watch Disney Enchantment with the general crowd, and then see the holiday fireworks during the event. There will also be other surprises during Disney Very Merriest After Hours. We’ll be there on Thursday evening, and we can’t wait to share our experiences.
