    When do Disney merriest night tickets go on sale?

    Season's greetings, Kaitlyn, and a warm welcome to planDisney!

    I’m so excited to hEAR that you’re thinking about purchasing tickets for Disney Merriest Nites, since this was one of my favorite events last year! My entire family had a blast at this festive after-hours event, and kept wishing the night wouldn’t end. 

    Though we don't have an exact date yet for when tickets could go on sale this year, I did some research to help us predict potential dates, should this event indeed return. In 2021, Disney Merriest Nites tickets went on sale starting September 14, no earlier than 9:00 AM on Disneyland.com and on the Disneyland app. The event nights were November 11, November 16, November 30, December 7, and December 9. The Holidays at the Disneyland Resort officially kicked off on November 12 and ran through January 9, 2022. Looking toward this year, I’d estimate that the holiday season will run from about November 11, 2022 through January 8, 2023. If Disney Merriest Nites does return to Disneyland Park this year, I’d guess that we’ll hear about it by early September, since that’s when it was announced in 2021. I recommend staying tuned to the Disney Parks Blog in September for the latest holiday announcements!

    For me, some of the highlights of the event included watching the Muppets perform, catching an exclusive viewing of A Christmas Fantasy Parade, discovering unique Disney Character sightings, and even watching snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A.! Plus, with your event ticket, you can “mix-in” early to Disneyland Park just in time to catch the magical “it’s a small world” Holiday Lighting! I highly recommend going all out with fun holiday attire, especially since your ticket includes unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from the night.

    I look forward to the return of the Merriest Place on Earth this fall, Kaitlyn! Please stop by with any additional planning questions as your trip gets closer… we love making your Disney dreams come true!

    Wishing you merry magic,
