It may still be summer, but Disney is already making their holiday plans, and it will be good news for many who love to spend the holidays with Mickey and Minnie.
Disney World just announced that for the first time since the pandemic they are bringing back Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The ticketed, after hours event at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will be held over 24 nights from November 8th to December 22nd, and will not be included with a regular theme park admission.
Those who snag a ticket will enjoy things like Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks and Disney Junior Jingle Jam featuring Disney Junior characters. Admission also includes free cookies and hot cocoa, shorter lines for attractions, some of which are getting holiday twists, plus a holiday-themed 50th Anniversary commemorative keepsake.
Tickets will set guests back between $149 and $199 depending on the day they go, and while that’s more than the 2019 price, it is cheaper than last year’s Mickey’s Very. Merriest After Hours.
In addition to the after-hours event, Disney World will have plenty of holiday food, decoration and activities for the regular park goer, including things like a Santa Claus Merry Motorcade, a “Frozen” singalong celebration, an International Festival of Lights with Holiday cookie stroll and EPCOT and more.
And it’s not just Disney World that has made their holiday plans. Disneyland in Anaheim is bringing back "World of Color – Season of Light" at Disney California Adventure Park for the first time since the pandemic. Plus, "Believe ... In Holiday Magic" fireworks, which returned last year, will be back once again.
