The 2021 Christmas party at Disney World is going to look a bit different. Like last year, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is put on hiatus because of Covid-concerns. Instead, Disney has decided to replace the popular party with a new special ticketed event, Disney Very Merriest After Hours.
Disney Very Merriest After Hours
Disney Very Merriest After Hours is a separate ticketed event that begins Nov. 8, 2021, and continues on select nights through the holiday season.
The four-hour experience with feature “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks,” special opportunities to see Disney characters throughout the park and plenty of holiday cheer.
The event will be open to a limited number of guests after regular park operating hours. The event will run from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM, but guests with tickets can arrive as early as 7pm.
Like the traditional Christmas party, you can expect special holiday treats and a limited number of rides & attractions with much lower wait times.
Of course, the Jingle Cruise will be part of this celebration!
Tickets will go on sale in August, with an early purchase window available to guests of select Disney Resort hotels.
