Let's take a look: Walt Disney World will have a new, special-ticketed event for the Holiday Season. Beginning on November 12, "Disney Very Merriest After Hours", will be available on select nights and will feature "Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks", Disney Characters, holiday music and decor, treats and more!

Throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, Guests will find festive entertainment, whimsical decor, seasonal food & beverage offerings and holiday-themed merchandise will all be a part of a very special season at each of the Walt Disney World Resort's four theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs.

Over at the Disneyland Resort, Guests will find the Haunted Mansion Holiday will be returning for its 20th season beginning on September 3! This merry makeover is inspired by "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas," and celebrates the collision of Halloween and Christmas. To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Haunted Mansion Holiday, Disney is giving you a look at this year's gingerbread house. This is a tradition which changes every year.
