How to Visit Disney Jollywood Nights

Jollywood Nights Lights

If you want to visit Disney Jollywood Nights, you’ll need to purchase a Jollywood Nights ticket. The event runs from 8:30 pm to 12:30 am on the select nights listed above, but with the Jollywood Nights tickets, you can’t enter Disney’s Hollywood Studios before then. It’s important to note that this is also a separately ticketed event from normal entry into the park, so if you want to visit before 4, you’ll need to purchase a separate park ticket.

Holiday Shows You Can Enjoy at Disney Jollywood Nights

While the Walt Disney World parks are no strangers to exciting live performances, Disney Jollywood Nights takes it to a whole new level! Disney Holidays in Hollywood is an all-new stage show inspired by the glitz and glamour of vintage Hollywood TV specials with a contemporary holiday twist at Theater of the Stars. You’ll see special appearances from icons like Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Tiana, Belle, Minnie and Mickey Mouse alongside a talented cast of singers, dancers, and jazz musicians.

You can also stop by the Hyperion Theater for What’s This? Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing-Along. This dreamlike adventure is inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and features beloved songs from the film as you follow two friends on a larger-than-life journey.

Last but not least, you can end the night strong with Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! You’ll get to watch in awe as heartwarming holiday moments from beloved Disney films are brought to life on the facade of the park’s iconic Chinese Theater. This dazzling nighttime spectacular is filled with fireworks, lasers, lights, projections, and merry music.

Themed Entertainment at Disney Jollywood Nights

Aside from the major performances, there’s plenty of other entertainment at Disney Jollywood Nights. You’ll find a DJ spinning a holiday mix on Hollywood Boulevard. Or, if you’d like a dose of nostalgia, check out the throwback bash at Echo Lake. You’ll get to hang out with Powerline Max, Phineas, and Ferb! To add a Latin twist to the festivities, head over to Commissary Lane. You’ll find a lively Latin street fair called Holiday Fiesta en la Calle. Enjoy delicious drinks and treats inspired by Latin holiday traditions while music fills the air.

For a venue that’s classy and sophisticated, stop by the Hollywood Brown Derby for Jazzy Holidays. During the celebration, Hollywood Brown Derby transforms into a smooth jazz joint complete with holiday music, craft cocktails, and event-exclusive light bites. Another must-see spot is the Twilight Soiree at the Tip Top Club. Located in the Hollywood Tower Hotel Courtyard, the Tip Top Club is a great spot to sip cocktails while a live band plays holiday tunes. If you’re looking for something a bit more calm and classy, the Tip Top Club at the Hollywood Tower Hotel and Jazzy Holidays at the Hollywood Brown Derby are great choices. Meanwhile, Echo Lake and Holiday Fiesta en la Calle are better for something more fast-paced and lively.
