NEWS: Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Coming BACK to Disney World — DATES ANNOUNCED

We are READY for Disney’s upcoming holiday season events!

Castle Stage Show During Very Merriest After Hours

Due to the global pandemic in 2020, Disney World canceled their usual holiday party that year. Then, in 2021, Disney World replaced its usual Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party with Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours Event. For 2022, we’ve been waiting on the news about which event would be returning this year, and we’re thrilled to share that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is coming BACK this holiday season!

This year Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will take place on 24 select nights from November 8th through December 22nd, 2022!

This is a separately ticketed even that takes place after the park closes to normal guests. So, you have to buy tickets exclusively for the party if you want to attend. The party dates are:

  • November: 8, 10, 11, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 27, 29
  • December: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22

We’ve been looking forward to seeing all that will return to this fan-favorite party! In 2019, we saw offerings such as Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration stage show, the Frozen Holiday Wish Castle Lighting show, and The Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.

This year, Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration stage show is returning! You can join Mickey and his pals in front of Cinderella Castle to see the show featuring nostalgic and modern medleys of holiday music paired with dance performances.

Also returning will be Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks! This show includes castle projections, fireworks, and seasonal songs. We did see this show last year during the After Hours party.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is also coming back, featuring Santa Claus, Mickey, and the flying reindeer, of course!

There will also be returning holiday overlays at certain attractions during the party! Jungle Cruise will become the Jingle Cruise during normal hours as well, but as an exclusive treat for event attendees, Space Mountain, Tomorrowland Speedway, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, and Mad Tea Party will all receive a special holiday makeover for the party.

Want to dance the night away? Over at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café, you can get down when denizens of the North Pole drop by for an intergalactic dance party! Or, dance alongside some of your favorite Disney characters during the holiday show, A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas on the Rockettower Plaza Stage. And, for the Disney Junior fans, you can find the Disney Junior Jingle Jam at Storybook Circus!
