Passholder email suggests 'Disney Very Merriest After Hours' will include a stage show

The Magic Kingdom's holiday event, "Disney Very Merriest After Hours," may offer a stage show after all.

When announced, the headline for the event was the return of Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show and Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. The notable omission from the previous year's "Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party" was the castle stage show.

In a new email to Passholders, Disney says, "Enjoy a theme parade, stage show and fireworks show." The email doesn't name a show, but "Mickey's Most Merriest" was introduced in 2016 as the new castle stage show for holiday party nights and would seem to be the obvious choice.

The official event website does not mention the stage show, so it remains to be seen if this is an error in the email or an early mention of an upcoming announcement.

Unlike the lower-priced "Disney BOO BASH," which was completely sold out, "Disney Very Merriest After Hours" still has all nights available. Tickets range from $169 to $229 plus tax for select November-December nights and $249, plus tax on December 19 & 21. Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can take advantage of a $10 discount on select event dates in November. These dated event tickets do not require an additional day theme park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation.

Wait... can it be that there aren't twelve thousand vloggers to buy up all the tickets for the first night?

The first night of Very Merry (usually a Friday) was always the first to sell out in years past. A lot of locals went.

Good! TDO just needs deliver on the show now! Although I'm surprised the 2nd night sold out first, before the first night??? Or is it the last night of MVMCP that always sells out first?

The castle does have a few tiny lights that would create a sparkling effect or at least it used to. Was most noticeable in Wishes.

Uhhhh, Frozen is nearly just as popular as it was 8 years ago lol. Frozen 2 is also very popular. A bunch of folks in my school broke out into an impromptu singing of "Let It Go" in the hallway today 😂.

Makes it pretty hard to paint the castle. SSE doesn't get painted

Might involve a extensive overhaul of the castle to make that happen, but id be all for it!

It would be cool if they could install little LED lights (similar to Spaceship Earth) throughout the bricks of the castle that could make the castle look like it’s “sparkling” at night. Then they wouldn’t have the crane installation issue every year, but would still have light effects instead of projections. I think they’re overusing the whole projection thing, IMO.

I'd be surprised if those lights ever came back. At the earliest we would know would be holidays 2023, I'd imagine.
