It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… well almost! As we currently celebrate all things this Halloween season with Oogie Boogie Bash at Disneyland Park and Disney’s After Hours Boo Bash at Walt Disney World Resort, we’re now learning of a special holiday event that will be rolling in soon! While Walt Disney World has previously shared the news of the 50th Anniversary celebrations, we also know Magic Kingdom Park will host “Disney Very Merriest After Hours“, Disneyland is adding their own dose of holiday magic with a new separate ticket, limited-capacity offering, after hours event called Disney Merriest Nites.

Disney Parks Blog announced the event: “Since Mickey Mouse adores the holidays and celebrating with friends, he’s invited some of them to help host six themed parties in one throughout Disneyland Park. You can join Mickey Mouse and his friends on one of five select nights during November and December with the purchase of a ticket!”

“As the host of the party, Mickey Mouse will welcome you to the party on Main Street, U.S.A. with Victorian flair, and Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and their friends join in the fun, traveling in a special coach with Christmas carol sing-alongs, Muppet antics, and a few chickens! Over in New Orleans Square, Princess Tiana plans to ring in Noel with Guests at her bayou-inspired celebration. In Frontierland, Miguel from the Disney and Pixar film “Coco” will be wishing everyone Feliz Navidad while you kick up your heels during a jolly dance-filled fiesta. Three more character-hosted holiday parties await you with a tropical party hosted by Lilo & Stitch in Adventureland, a wintertime celebration with Elsa in Fantasyland, and Buzz Lightyear taking the holidays to new heights over in Tomorrowland. Your friends and family will enjoy enhanced entertainment such as themed photo backdrops and character sightings, and themed specialty food and beverage offerings within the event.”
