'Tis the season for securing your tickets for your Disney holiday plans.

While the winter holiday is still a couple of months away, you'll have to buy tickets now if you hope to celebrate at Disneyland in California.

This year, the park is hosting a new celebration: Disney Merriest Nites. According to Disney, it's a six-in-one party set to happen on select nights, featuring "select attractions and entertainment, unique Disney character sightings, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A., themed photo ops, unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from the event, themed menu items, live bands, dance parties and the opportunity to purchase special event-themed merchandise."

Costumes are encouraged, but they are subject to Disney's costume guidelines. And keep in mind that at the time of writing, masks are still required indoors, on Disney transportation and on many attractions for everyone ages 2 and up — regardless of your vaccination status. While it's possible these rules will change by the time of your trip, it's best to plan for them to still be in place.

Tickets go on sale today, Sept. 14, at 9 a.m., and as mentioned earlier, capacity is limited. If you're hoping to deck the halls on Main Street U.S.A. this year, you'll want to grab your tickets as soon as possible.
