    We purchased Very Merriest After Hours tickets. We also plan to spend the day at Magic Kingdom. Do we have to go back to the front at 7pm and scan back in or just stay in the park? Also will we receive a schedule of events for the night?

    Hi Katie! Merry Christmas! You are going to have such a great time at the new Disney Very Merriest After Hours event at Magic Kingdom Park! Nobody does Christmas better than Mickey and Minnie!

    I have good news for you! Once you have entered Magic Kingdom Park, there is no need for you to exit and reenter for the Christmas event later that night. You can just stay in the park and go about your day/night! Since you are planning to visit Magic Kingdom Park before the 7:00 PM entry time for the after-hours event, make sure that you have both a valid theme park ticket for the day, as well as a Disney Park Pass reservation for Magic Kingdom Park. Your Disney Very Merriest After Hours event ticket does not include admission to the park prior to 7:00 PM. As time gets closer to 7:00 PM, you'll begin to see special guide maps will be made available to visitors.

    Katie, I’ve been seeing some wonderful photos and reading great reviews about the new Disney Very Merriest After Hours event! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the holiday season! As an extra tip...if you enjoy the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort, then you might want to swing by Disney Springs to visit the Christmas Tree Stroll! This is one of my family’s favorite holiday traditions! All of the trees are themed after our favorite Disney characters, movies, rides, and more! The trees are beautiful enough to even put Scrooge McDuck in the holiday spirit!
