Even though Disneyland’s Halloween celebrations (including the Oogie Boogie Bash) are only just getting underway, the park is already preparing for the holidays–and a new limited-capacity event called Disney Merriest Nites is being added to the celebration schedule! Disney Merriest Nites is part of the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort festivities, and it features Mickey Mouse and his friends on five select nights during November and December. Tickets are going on sale September 14th; keep reading to find out what’s in store!

Disney Guests can see Mickey Mouse right when they arrive on Main Street, U.S.A., and he’ll be accompanied by Muppets like Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy as they ride in a Christmas coach and sing Christmas carols. Feel free to join in! Meanwhile, in New Orleans Square, Princess Tiana will be having a “bayou-inspired celebration”. Over in Frontierland, Miguel from “Coco” is hosting a fiesta, and there’s even more festivities if you want extra variety! Head over to Adventureland for a tropical party with Lilo & Stitch, a Frozen event with Elsa within Fantasyland, and a party with Buzz Lightyear in Tomorrowland.

There will be extra photo opportunities (as well as unlimited Disney Photopass digital downloads for the night), character sightings, and lots of holiday-themed food for visitors at this separately-ticketed event! Since this is a “limited-capacity, after-hours” offering, not all attractions will be open. Closed attractions will include Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Mickey’s Toontown, and Critter Country. However, Guests will be able to see unique holiday versions of “It’s A Small World” and “Haunted Mansion”, as well as a special Christmas Fantasy parade.

This event will only be happening on November 11th, November 16th, November 30th, December 7th, and December 9th; you can start purchasing your tickets after September 14th, and can do so online or through the Disneyland App! Are you excited for holidays with Disney? After all, we all know there’s nothing like a Disney park Christmas, and this year’s Disneyland Christmas does not look like one that you’ll want to miss!
