What Can You Expect To Experience At Jollywood Nights?

First and foremost, it sounds like this is going to be a red-carpet affair!

So dress to impress. Guests are being encouraged to wear their best holiday outfits and get ready for your Hollywood moment.

We’re thinking Dapper Day-esque with a holiday/Christmas flair.

You’ll also experience:

  • live bands and DJ music: You’ll be welcomed to Disney Jollywood Nights with a DJ spinning a mix of holiday tunes. Commissary Lane comes to life with a lively Latin Street Fair
  • keep dancing at a jazz lounge and piano bar located at The Hollywood Brown Derby and an other-worldly soiree at The Hollywood Tower Hotel Courtyard. Think the “Tip Top Lounge” in real life!
  • an all-new stage show hosted by Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy at Theater of the Stars—with special appearances from Princess Tiana, Belle and more. And yes, Kermit and Piggy will be live on stage!
  • sing-along experiences at Hyperion Theater with Jack and Sally and the Nightmare Before Christmas experience
  • Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! nighttime spectacular
  • Short lines for all attractions (Rise of the Resistance will use a Virtual Queue system on these nights)
  • Meet Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and friends in Animation Courtyard on a hot set with holiday props
  • Saunter over to Echo Lake to see friends like Powerline Max and Phineas and Ferb
  • Strike a pose with Edna Mode at Pixar Place
  • special holiday snacks, sweets, and drinks available for purchase throughout the park
  • pose for those holiday-themed Magic Shots and two new Disney PhotoPass experiences throughout the night with complimentary digital downloads

How Are Jollywood Nights Different Than Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party?

The obvious answer is the location. One happens in Magic Kingdom and the other happens in Hollywood Studios.

Depending on your preferred vibe, you may decide you want to be at the other park.

You won’t get a parade at Jollywood Nights or a full fireworks show.

Jingle Bell BAM does have some fireworks, but it’s not the same experience you’d have in front of Cinderella Castle. But it is super fun and cute and one of our holiday faves.

We don’t see any announcement of free cookies or cocoa at Jollywood Nights.

You get those at Mickey’s Very Merry Party, however.

Do We Think Jollywood Nights Is Worth It?

Since we haven’t experienced it just yet, we can’t definitively say if Jollywood Nights will be worth the cost.

Based on what we’re seeing as offerings, we think it will depend on your family and your park preferences.

If you are thrill ride lovers, Hollywood Studios is the park for you. And getting to experience the rides over and over again with short waits will certainly scratch your thrill junkie itch!

If you absolutely love retro old Hollywood vibes, we also think Jollywood Nights will show up and show out and give you a unique experience.

We cannot wait to experience the party in The Hollywood Tower Hotel Courtyard ourselves.

Two things stand out: Rise of the Resistance will only offer a virtual queue (which likely means one ride only on this E-Ticket ride) and the lack of free snacks and drinks.

This does make us tilt a bit to seeing Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party as possibly the better bang for the buck experience.

But Hollywood Studios at Christmas time is one of our absolute favorite places, so we’re not counting out this experience just yet!

We’ll have a full report coming as soon as we know when we will be attending Jollywood Nights Christmas Party At Hollywood Studios.
