The new holiday special-ticketed event at Magic Kingdom Park is well underway. We said goodbye to the memorable Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, as this year we’ve welcomed the new Disney Very Merriest After Hours event. The holiday event has a fantastic fireworks show that is not to be missed! And now, Walt Disney World Resort is allowing select Guests to enjoy the show from a special viewing area.
Disney Very Merriest After Hours is a 4-hour event that has been met with some resistance due to its price hike to comparable events in years past. Despite the moans and groans on the price, the event is still selling out on most dates.
During Disney Very Merriest After Hours, special holiday fireworks are presented called, “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show“. Disney describes the fireworks with a chance to, “Feast your eyes on a scintillating fireworks display, hosted by Minnie Mouse. See the sky light up in dazzling colors to the tune of favorite Christmas carols.” Cinderella Castle lights up with holiday projection as well.
Well, if you’re a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) member and have a ticket to the party – you’re in luck! Disney Vacation Club took to Instagram to share the news, “Did you know that Disney Vacation Club Members have access – at no extra cost – to a special fireworks viewing area when attending the Disney Very Merriest After Hours Party at Magic Kingdom Park? If you have a ticket to one of the parties between Dec. 2 and 21st 2021, register your travel partners (as many as four people total) for spots in the special fireworks viewing area online at http://disneyurl.com/DVCMerriest“
Once you visit the page, members are greeted with,
“Welcome Home Members! Space is extremely limited. Out of courtesy for other Members, please only register if you are confident you and your party can attend and you have already purchased valid Disney Very Merriest After Hours Ticket(s). Come join us in our Disney Vacation Club reserved viewing area at East Garden for select night in December during Disney Very Merriest After Hours Party! An event ticket and RSVP is required. At least one valid Disney Vacation Club Membership Card, photo I.D. and a confirmation email will be needed for admission.”
Currently, as noted in the screenshot below, December 5, 7, and 9 are full, leaving party dates open including December 10, 12, 14, 16, 17, 19, and 21:
When confirming the reservation, Disney notes that the fireworks viewing access area will open at 9:00 pm for the 11:15 pm show. As a Disney Vacation Club member, I was able to obtain passes to the special viewing area for the night of December 16th with our tickets to Disney Very Merriest After Hours Party.
Having paid for fireworks view access at Magic Kingdom Park before for events like the Firework Dessert Party for the Disney Enchantment fireworks, we’re thrilled to have an opportunity to enjoy Christmas fireworks as a perk of being DVC members.
Anyone else planning to take advantage of this special viewing area during Disney Very Merriest After Hours?
