One thought on “Disney’s “Very Merriest After Hours” Announced for 2021 Magic Kingdom Holidays

  1. What He’ll is wrong with Disney?!?
    Just titling something “After Hours” immediately translates into 3 hours for $130-$190 per ticket.

    This is rediculous!
    We need to send disney a message and stop buying these over priced tickets.

    I’m just done. Disney. You get no more of my money.
