If you can’t get enough of the Disneyland parks during the regular hours, there is a solution on the way. The Disneyland Resort is launching “Disney Merriest Nites,” a new after-hours event that will be held over five nights starting Nov. 11 and ending Dec. 9

“Disney Merriest Nites” features Mickey Mouse and his friends hosting six themed parties within one giant celebration throughout Disneyland Park. Families and guests who attend will get to experience enhanced holiday décor, seasonal entertainment and specialty food and beverage offerings themed to each party during the event.

As the host of the party, Mickey Mouse will welcome guests on Main Street, U.S.A. in Victorian flair, joined by Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and their friends. They will travel in a special coach with Christmas carol sing-alongs.

At New Orleans Square, Princess Tiana will welcome guests to celebrate Noel with a bayou-inspired celebration. Guests visiting Frontierland will see Miguel from the Disney/Pixar film “Coco” wishing everyone Feliz Navidad for a jolly fiesta.

Three more character-hosted holiday parties await guests 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 in Tomorrowland.

This special late-night event goes along with the other holiday events at the theme parks. Holidays at the Disneyland Resort is scheduled to run from Nov. 12 through Jan. 9, 2022.

If you have never been to the theme parks during the holidays the entire area quickly transforms from all of the Halloween-themed attractions to one that is a distinctly Disney holiday experience. This includes Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade and snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Park.

Over at Disney California Adventure Park, the holiday celebration includes Disney Festival of Holidays, “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” Street Party and the merry motor-themed holiday décor on Route 66 in Cars Land.
