Disney Very Merriest After Hours Will Replace Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in 2021

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World is being replaced this holiday season, but don't worry: 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., though guests will be allowed into the park beginning at 7 p.m. The event will be ticketed separately just like Disney's Halloween festivities, with tickets going on sale in August.

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 on Main Street, and Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks. Bring on the holiday season!
