    We are staying at the WL in Dec 2021 & are planning to purchase tix for Merriest After Hours. If we arrive to MK prior to 9pm (perhaps 3 or 4pm) would we be allowed in the park or would we need a separate park admission tix? Best WISHES!

    Hi Chris! Let me be one of the first to wish you a “very merriest” Christmas! It sure sounds like Mickey and Minnie have put together a very special Disney After Hours event for this holiday season!

    Guests with tickets for Disney Very Merriest After Hours are allowed to enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7:00 PM on the date of their After Hours ticket. That is two hours earlier than the official start of the After Hours event! Take advantage of that extra time in the park! If you wish to enter Magic Kingdom Park prior to 7:00 PM, then you would need to purchase a park ticket and make a Disney Park Pass reservation.

    Chris, based upon reviews of the current Boo Bash After Hours event at Magic Kingdom Park, it sounds like the 7:00 PM to 1:00 AM experience for Disney Very Merriest After Hours might be the perfect amount of time to get the most out of your Magic Kingdom experience! The After Hours events have significantly reduced attendance with limited wait times for attractions!

    Have a magical (and merry) vacation this holiday season!
