Disney Jollywood Nights in Hollywood Studios

At Disney Jollywood Nights, an all new after hours event in Hollywood Studios, Hollywood glamor meets holiday cheer! I was thrilled to attend the party a few days ago with Sister and CeeCee. It was such a fun night out for the Disney fans that have done it all.

Event-Exclusive Shows

Our favorite part of the evening was definitely the shows!

Disney Holidays in Hollywood
This all-new stage show inspired by the glitz and glamour of vintage Hollywood TV specials—with a contemporary twist and some holiday magic—takes place at Theater of the Stars. Enjoy appearances from special guest stars, including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Tiana, Belle, Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse—accompanied by a talented cast of singers, dancers and jazz musicians. It was a fabulous, toe-tapping, smile inducing spectacle!

What’s This? Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing-Along
We are huge Nightmare fans and were thrilled to join Jack Skellington at Hyperion Theater for a dreamlike adventure inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Guests sing along with the Pumpkin King to beloved songs from the film.

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!
We loved that the party brought back Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! A show we saw many years in a row, but have missed in recent years. Watch in awe as heartwarming holiday moments from favorite Disney films are brought to life on the façade of the park’s iconic Chinese Theater. It’s a stunning display of fireworks, lasers, lights, projections and merry music.

Warm lighting and colorful décor give the street a vibrant feel, as you sip drinks and nibble on treats inspired by Latin holiday traditions.

Specialty Treats

Enjoy specialty treats and sips all around the park. Our favorite was the Gertie sugar cookie!

Overall, it was a fun night and we would do it again. It definitely has a more adult vibe and attractions are not the main star here. It would be a great excuse to get dressed up for a glitzy park night, but it was freezing cold so we opted for function over fashion. :-)
