Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours party is the only place you can catch a parade in Walt Disney World right now, and Guests have been enjoying this holiday entertainment! For the first time, Disney has included culturally diverse actors to play the role of Santa Claus.
Disney Very Merriest After Hours
Beginning in early November, Disney began hosting the brand new Disney Very Merriest After Hours Event (with the purchase of special event ticket). This After Hours party is replacing Mickey’s Very Merriest Christmas Party from previous years.
While the After Hours event is different from the Christmas parties of the past, it is still proving to be very popular with Guests, despite the high price tag of this event.
The return of parades
We are so excited for the return of parades in Disney World! Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours features a Christmas parade!
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be joined by our favorite friends from Disney’s “Frozen” and many other favorite Disney characters! The parade also has the popular Toy Soldiers and, of course, also features Santa Claus himself!
Santa Claus is coming to town
Tiktok user rozyqueenofcups has shared a new video of Santa on Main Street, U.S.A. during Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours. This parade featured a black actor as Santa Claus.
Rozy took to Tiktok to praise Disney for the representation.
