More Than a Month Later, No Very Merriest After Hours Dates Sold Out

It’s been a month and four days since Disney Very Merriest After Hours tickets went on sale. Unlike the Disney After Hours Boo Bash tickets that experienced sell-outs early and often, there hasn’t been a single Very Merriest After Hours to sell out yet. As a matter of fact, Boo Bash was so popular that Disney added dates in the hotel guest pre-sale period before tickets went on sale to the general public.

If the lack of sold-out dates is any indication, the spike in pricing of the Very Merriest After Hours event could be just a step too far for guests. The average ticket price for Very Merriest is north of $200, whereas the average price for a 2019 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party ticket was just $111.
