For years, Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida during the holiday season have been able to purchase tickets to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. This year will be a bit different, with Disney World now hosting Disney Very Merriest After Hours. Unfortunately for the West Coast, a similar event was not offered to Guests visiting the Disneyland Resort.

However, that is now changing.
