If you ever attended Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you probably had your fair share of cookies. This year the party has been replaced by Disney Very Merriest After Hours. There are still some special treats during the four-hour event, and here is a rundown.

We’ll start with the cookies. There isn’t the wide variety of cookies that were available in the past, but you can still get Snickerdoodle Cookies and Hot Cocoa.

The cookies are from Cheryl’s Cookies. They are soft and delicious. They are individually wrapped.

We would call it Warm Cocoa, not hot. The cups are small. The cocoa itself was quite good; sweet but not too sweet.

There are also allergy-friendly cookies available. These are Lucy’s Cinnamon Thins. There are several small cookies in the pack, and they are crispy, not soft.

The cookies and cocoa are available in several places throughout the Magic Kingdom. They can be found at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, Columbia Harbour House, Pinocchio Village House, and Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe. A pole that looks like a peppermint stick marks each location.

Also included with your ticket are unlimited popcorn, ice cream novelties, and bottled beverages. There are plentiful carts located throughout the Park, and the Cast Members kept any line moving. The locations of the Snack Carts can be found on your Disney Very Merriest After Hours map.

In addition to the foods that are included, there are some extra treats that you might want to purchase.

Sleepy Hollow has a Ginger Apple Funnel Cake that is topped with vanilla ice cream. To Be Jolly Float and Gingerbread Almond Cake Pop are both sold at Golden Oak Outpost. Main Street, U.S.A. Snack Cart has an Orange Bird Churro.

If you’re hungry for more than just a snack, some restaurants are open for part or all of the event. They include Casey’s Corner, The Friar’s Nook, and the full menu at Golden Oak Outpost. You’ll find more information on your event map.

With shorter lines for many rides, extra entertainment, and snacks included, Disney Very Merriest After Hours is a lot of fun. Dates are going fast, so purchase your tickets sooner rather than later.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
