Even though we’re in the middle of the Halloween season, it’s time to start planning for the holidays!
We already received some information on celebrations that will be coming to Disneyland Resort, but now we’ve got even more details. Today, Disney announced that an all-new After Hours event, Disney Merriest Nites, is coming soon!
On five select nights in November and December, Disney Merriest Nites will take place at Disneyland Park, bringing holiday cheer to those who purchase a ticket for this special event. Guests of the event will get limited capacity after-hours access to select rides and attractions, including Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world” Holiday.
Throughout the park, there will be six separate holiday celebrations in various lands:
- A party with “Victorian flair” on Main Street, U.S.A., hosted by Mickey Mouse and the Muppets
- A bayou-inspired celebration with Princess Tiana in New Orleans Square
- A fiesta with Miguel from Coco in Frontierland
- A tropical party hosted by Lilo & Stitch in Adventureland
- A winter celebration with Elsa in Fantasyland
- A holiday party with Buzz Lightyear in Tomorrowland
There will be special entertainment offerings, photo backdrops, and character sightings all around the park, plus themed food and beverages for guests of the event, as well as special Merriest Nites-themed merchandise.
Those who attend will get unlimited PhotoPass downloads for the evening. And you’ll also be able to enjoy the popular “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade!
Here’s a whole listing of what special things to expect!
Tickets will go on sale on September 14th, 2021 for events held on November 11th, 16th, and 30th, and December 7th and 9th. They can be purchased online and in the Disneyland app no earlier than 9AM.
Note that the party starts at 8PM and runs through midnight, but guests will be able to enter the park as early as 5PM.
