What do you get when you mix the holiday season with Disneyland? The brand new “Merriest Nites” event, which will bring plenty of festive fun to the “Happiest Place on Earth”.

Disney’s “Merriest Nites” consists of six holiday events at Disneyland Park on select nights during Nov. and Dec. 2021. According to the Disney website, “Merriest Nites” will feature new twists on the classic holiday favorites hosted at the park during the season. Attendees get after-hours admission to Disneyland Park to enjoy popular attractions, live entertainment, and plenty of photo ops, among other things.

You’ll see Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Miguel, Tiana, Elsa, Lilo, Stitch, and Buzz Lightyear, and there will be access to attractions such as “It’s a Small World” and Haunted Mansion with shorter wait times. Keep in mind that some areas will not be open during event hours (Mickey’s Toontown, Critter Country, and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, being a few).

A special performance of A Christmas Fantasy Parade will take place, and there will be plenty of festive photo ops throughout the experience. Additionally, you’ll be able to purchase holiday merchandise as well as festive bites and beverages. (Make mine a hot chocolate, please!) And it wouldn’t be the festive season without snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A., and an appearance from Santa Claus himself.

Disney “Merriest Nites” will run on selected nights from Nov. 11 through Dec. 9. General Admission tickets start at $165 per person (aged 3+) and are available to purchase now.
