Stage Show Coming to After Hours Event at Magic Kingdom

| | |

Disney sneaks out an announcement for a brand new stage show coming to Disney Very Merriest After Hours at Magic Kingdom!

A few months ago we were happily surprised when Disney announced that they would be bringing a Christmas After Hours event to Magic Kingdom this year. With the sucess of the Halloween after hours, it just makes sense that Disney would try to take advantage of the holiday market too.

Disney Very Merriest After Hours at Magic Kingdom will begin on November 8th and be held select nights through Christmas. Up util this point we knew there would be a special nighttime spectacular called “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks” and a special holiday-themed parade(yep, a whole parade)  “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.”

However, unitl just a few hours ago we had no idea Disney was going to be bringing a stage show to the after hours event! Disney sent out an email to their passholders subtly making the annonucement. Take a look below:

“Holiday cheer is coming to Magic Kingdom®Park this season during Disney Very Merriest After Hours! Enjoy a themed parade, stage show and fireworks show, complimentary treats, lower wait times and more.”
