2021 Very Merriest After Hours Map Details Legend

Some of these symbols don’t appear in the legends for each land, like the Character Sightings, so look out for those on the large map area.

🎅 There are two SECRET characters that Cast Members pointed us to that aren’t on the map! It’s these kinds of details that we investigated for our Very Merriest feature in the December issue of WDW Magazine!
