As the weather turns colder and spooks turn to snowflakes, it is time to revisit some festive delight that Walt Disney World has to offer. While Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party returned in 2022, we thought it would be the perfect time to look back on the Very Merriest After Hours event that took place in 2021 as there are a few similarities.
Magic Kingdom is festive throughout the day from November to December, but it takes on a whole new personality at night for the holiday events.
For the Very Merriest After Hours, let's start with the included snacks. You could get a few park favorite treats and some seasonal delights. The lines at the start of the event for ice cream and soda were long, but they faded throughout the night and it was much easier to get snacks later on. We enjoyed Mickey's Premium Ice Cream Bars first. While it was December, it was still plenty warm out for ice cream! They had a few other favorite ice cream novelties available as well. We also got some park popcorn which is always a delight. The event treats were available in four quick service restaurant locations and provided hot cocoa and a cookie that was individually wrapped to be enjoyed now or later! Allergy-friendly options were available for the cookies/cocoa upon request. These were all the perfect fuel to keep us going late into the night.
