On September 14, tickets went on sale for Disneyland’s newest after-hours Christmas event, Merriest Nites. The brand-new Christmas event was announced on September 10 and Disneyland Guests were excited to hear that they were finally getting their very own holiday party. However, many went through a little bit of sticker shock when it was revealed that tickets would begin at $165.
While the price might have been high to some, it did not stop people from jumping onto the Disneyland website at 9 a.m. when tickets went on sale. Wait times were over an hour for most Guests, but many of them were able to eventually purchase tickets for the dates that they were interested in.
Tickets to Disney’s Merriest Nites were so popular that one date has already sold out. Merriest Nites will only run for five nights, and the final night of the party, December 9, has sold out. Disney has not said how many tickets are available for each night of the event, which will kick off at 8 p.m. on November 11.
At the time of publication, all other dates for Merriest Nites remain available — which are November 11, 16, 30, and December 7. The ticket cost for each date is $165, with the exception of November 11, which will cost Guests $175 as it is the opening night of the event.
For Guests who may be interested in purchasing tickets to Merriest Nites but do not know a lot about what will be offered, here is more information on the exciting new holiday party from Disney:
As the host of the party, Mickey Mouse will welcome you to the party on Main Street, U.S.A. with Victorian flair, and Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and their friends join in the fun, traveling in a special coach with Christmas carol sing-alongs, Muppet antics, and a few chickens! Over in New Orleans Square, Princess Tiana plans to ring in Noel with guests at her bayou-inspired celebration. In Frontierland, Miguel from the Disney and Pixar film “Coco” will be wishing everyone Feliz Navidad while you kick up your heels during a jolly dance-filled fiesta. Three more character-hosted holiday parties await you with a tropical party hosted by Lilo & Stitch in Adventureland, a wintertime celebration with Elsa in Fantasyland, and Buzz Lightyear taking the holidays to new heights over in Tomorrowland. Your friends and family will enjoy enhanced entertainment such as themed photo backdrops and character sightings, and themed specialty food and beverage offerings within the event.
