One of our favorite things for Christmas at Magic Kingdom includes ogling the decorations, trying all the Disney snacks, and heading to the gift shops to see the new seasonal merchandise. We love Christmas. And as a result, wait for this season all year long. Of all the parks at Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom is best known for holiday fun. This year Christmas at Walt Disney World Begins on November 12, 2021. With holiday festivities in all four parks, here’s what you can find if you’re visiting Magic Kingdom this holiday season.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is still MIA in 2021, and as a result, we’re looking forward to where we can find the holiday spirit across the park. While it’s true Hollywood Studios may win the award for “most festive,” Magic Kingdom is a close second. At Magic Kingdom, there is a slew of new Christmas activities, for instance. From New Christmas Snacks and the Very Merriest After Hours party to the castle projection show and special performances. Take a look at Magic Kingdom for the Holidays.

Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours Party
Christmas at Walt Disney World just got a whole lot merrier! A brand new Disney After Hours Event is on the way this holiday season and features Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show! This show was previously a mainstay at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Since that party has been canceled this year fireworks have been moved to this After-Hours event.
Minnie’s Most Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks
As part of Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, there is a special fireworks show featuring Minnie Mouse herself. A collection of festive tunes, and everything needed to get you ready for the holidays at Walt Disney World.
When is Disney’s Very Merriest Christmas Party?
Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours is offered select dates starting November 8 and runs through December 21, 2021.
While this event can’t compare to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, because it’s not a family-focused holiday extravaganza. Like any Disney After Hours event, the includes specialty snacks exclusive to this party, complimentary treats, and access to rides, with low waits. The limited capacity of this event is the headliner. Which allows a much less crowded park and loads of ride time. Check out all the details about this new Disney Christmas After Hours event!

Main Street Philharmonic and Toy Soldiers March
A mainstay in the Magic Kingdom entertainment lineup, this marching band takes to Main Street USA for holiday tunes.
