We also got some new information regarding the cost of the event, which will range in price from $169 to $229, although the price jumps up to $249 on December 19th and 21st. But how does that price compare to the previous Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party? Let’s break it down.
Very Merriest After Hours
Here’s what guests will get with tickets to the new Very Merriest After Hours party:
- Admission to Magic Kingdom as early as 7PM on party nights without a park pass reservation (the party officially kicks off at 9PM)
- Two fireworks shows, including the new Enchantment and Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks.
- Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade (the first parade to return to the parks since reopening)
- Disney characters in holiday costumes
- Club Tinsel dance party
- Special holiday MagicShots
- Seasonal songs by the Reindeer Wranglers
- Lower wait times for attractions
- Special projections on Cinderella Castle (alternating between 50th anniversary and holiday projections)
- Fake snow falling from the sky
- Holiday overlay on Jungle Cruise and Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
- Special holiday food and drinks
- Complimentary ice cream novelties, popcorn, select seasonal treats, and bottled beverages
Annual Passholders and DVC members can score a $10 discount on select November dates. But how does that compare to the previous event?
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
In 2019, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party prices ranged from $99 to $139 per adult ticket and from $94 to $134 per child ticket — that’s a HUGE price difference between the two events. We would also like to point out that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party also had longer hours — the party itself started at 7PM. Here is what was included with that ticket:
- Entrance into the park as early as 4PM
- A Frozen Holiday Wish
- Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration stage show
- Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade
- Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show
- A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show
- Meet and greet opportunities with Disney Characters
- Club Tinsel dance party at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
- Character dance parties
- Special holiday treats
- Complimentary cookies and hot cocoa throughout the Park
- Many of the most popular Magic Kingdom attractions (some with holiday overlays)
- Party-exclusive merchandise
So in comparison, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party cost less money and offered more shows, more perks, more hours, character meet and greets, and exclusive merchandise. However, if our experience with the After Hours Boo Bash is any indication, ride lines could generally be shorter for guests at the Very Merriest After Hours party, but we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case.
We would be curious as to what you think — how do you feel the prices of the old party compare to the new after hours event in regard to what guests get?
What do you think? Will the new Disney Very Merriest After Hours party be worth it? Let us know in the comments.
