    I am trying to attend the Very Merriest After Hours Event on November 8th. I want to book a Disney hotel so that I can get early access to the tickets. Do I need to book my reservation for the night of the 7th or the 8th?

    Hello, Shannon and welcome to the North Pole! Oops, I mean… planDisney! I just get so excited when talk turns to the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    There is nothing quite like strolling down Main Street, U.S.A. decked out in Christmas grandeur or enjoying (my favorite) the vintage inspired decorations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    Now, Shannon, the perfect way to kick off the holiday season certainly is with tickets to the new Disney Very Merriest After Hours, so let’s talk about purchasing those tickets.

    You are correct that guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels will be granted an early purchase window. If you are hoping to attend on the first night of festivities: November 8th, you would want to also book your hotel stay for November 8th. And… after a full evening of holiday fun, you’ll be able to let Mickey take care of the driving and use complimentary resort transportation from Magic Kingdom Park back to your resort.

    Shannon, to be among the first to know when tickets will go on sale, make sure to bookmark the Disney Parks Blog and follow @planDisneypanel on Instagram. Best wishes for a holiday season that would have even Scrooge McDuck chEARing. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to come back and see your new friends hEAR at planDisney.
