Today Disneyland has announced another way to celebrate the merriest season of them all. Disney Merriest Nites will be a special celebration hosted by Mickey Mouse and friends. There will be five of these themed parties offered throughout November and December. Each will require the purchase of an extra ticket.

Mickey Mouse will be the host of the party and welcome guests to Main Street, USA with a Victorian flair. Also, there will be Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and a few of their friends as well! They will be traveling in a special coach with Christmas carols and of course some Muppet antics… and chickens! There will be some other fun character experiences to see as well:

  • New Orleans Square will find Princess Tiana ringing in the season with a bayou-inspired celebration.
  • Frontierland will have Miguel from Disney and Pixar’s Coco will be wishing everyone Feliz Navidad and dancing the night away with a fun fiesta.
  • Adventureland will host Lilo & Stitch.
  • Fantasyland will host Elsa for a wintertime celebration.
