Disneyland will offer a separate ticketed after-hours Christmas holiday event for the first time. And for $165

This winter, Disneyland Resort will follow in the footsteps of its sister resort in Florida by hosting a limited capacity, separate ticket Christmas season after-hours event.

For $165 per person, guests to Disneyland’s Disney Merriest Nites may experience a special performance of a Christmas Fantasy Parade, a new “Frozen”-themed party in Fantasyland, and a Victorian-themed party on Main Street, U.S.A. with Mickey Mouse.

Disney officials announced Friday that the Disney Merriest Nites holiday party will be available on five chosen evenings in November and December. Tickets will go on sale on September 14th.

This is the first time Disneyland Resort has offered a separately ticketed Christmas holiday seasonal event, and it comes as the Anaheim amusement parks recover from the economic repercussions caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

“We continuously explore new ways to bring fresh experiences to our guests, including the launch of our Disneyland After Dark events in 2019,” said a Disneyland spokesperson in an email to Spectrum News. “We are excited to offer a new, unique way for guests to experience the merriest place on Earth.”

Separate, after-hours activities have become a Walt Disney World institution as well as a successful revenue-generating business concept. This approach enables Disney to attract two sorts of paying guests in a single day.

These individually paid events often provide guests with a more intimate park experience, with lower crowd levels and shorter ride wait times, as well as other unique activities.

However, there is a cost. The length of time a tourist may spend at the park is generally limited, and entrance is more expensive. A standard one-day one-park ticket for an adult, for example, may cost up to $154 at Disneyland. The exclusive Disney Merriest Nites after-hours event costs $165 for adults and $165 for children.

Walt Disney World has held many yearly after-hours night events throughout the year for more than a decade, with the most popular taking place between Halloween and the winter holiday season. This year, Walt Disney World in Florida is throwing a Halloween party called Boo Bash, as well as a winter holiday celebration called Disney Very Merriest After Hours.

For many years, Disneyland has held an after-hours Halloween celebration at either Disney California Adventure or Disneyland.

These Halloween night activities sell out quickly and allow guests to dress up, trick-or-treat, and receive free candy and refreshments inside Disneyland.

It’s also one of the few opportunities for tourists to pose with Disney villains like Cruella De Ville, Hades from “Hercules,” Gaston from “Beauty and the Beast,” and Jafar from “Aladdin.”

The Disney Merriest Nites at Disneyland will take place on November 11, 16, and 30, as well as December 7 and 9. Visitors to the separately ticketed event can access the park starting at 5 p.m., with the Christmas celebration beginning at 8 p.m. (Before the event begins, normal park guests are escorted away by Disney cast members.)

According to Disney authorities, attendees to the Disney Merriest Nites event will be able to attend six themed parties, one in each of Disneyland’s main original regions and hosted by a Disney character. There will be no access to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Mickey’s Toontown, or Critter Country.

Visitors will be able to experience the seasonal transformations of “it’s a small world” Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday, as well as witness the Christmas Fantasy procession and snap photographs in front of unique themed photo backgrounds.

With entry, guests will receive unlimited Disney PhotoPass.
