    Hi our trip is this December. Any idea what nights of the week Disney After Hours will be held? How about the Very Merry Christmas Party? Are these events typically held on the same nights of the week year after year? Thank you

    Hi Jennifer,

    How exciting that you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort during the Holidays. It is my favorite time of the year to visit when the whole Resort prepares to celebrate the season.

    Mickey will be ready to party and wants all Guests to join him and his friends in Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This special ticketed event is one party that cannot be missed with Character greetings, amazing parades and a special holiday edition grand finale of fireworks. The party will be back on select nights in the late fall, but stay tuned for dates and ticket availability at the Disney Parks Blog.

    Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park is another great way to enjoy Character Greetings and your favorite attractions with little or no wait. The whole Theme Park closes down and reopens just for a select number of Guests, at this special ticketed event. At this time, only Mickey knows if this event will return in the late fall. Last year, it was held only a couple of times at the beginning of December. Again, your best bet is to stay tuned at the Disney Parks Blog for announcements.

    One last tip: you still have time, but remember that you can make advanced dining reservations up to 180 days before arrival. So let's start planning!
