Jollywood Nights Christmas Party: A Retro Holiday Extravaganza at Hollywood Studios!
Are you ready to step back in time and experience a glamorous vintage Christmas celebration like no other? Well, get ready, because Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios is bringing the magic of Old Hollywood to life with their brand-new event: Jollywood Nights Christmas Party! It’s the perfect opportunity to dress up in your finest vintage attire and immerse yourself in the glitz and glamour of a bygone era. So, grab your tickets, mark your calendars, and get ready to be transported to a winter wonderland of yesteryear!
Hollywood Studios is one of our favorite parks, because it includes some of the best rides and shows! We love Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land. Our favorite rides include: Star Wars Rise of the Resistance, Slinky Dog Dash, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Rock N Roller Coaster. At Christmas time, Hollywood Studios is known for its vintage holiday decorations. In recent years, they have also included nightly snow fall (AKA “snoap”) on Hollywood Blvd.
What to Expect
Because this is a brand new event, we don’t have anything to really base it on as far as details. All we know is what Disney has officially come out and said. Here’s what we know so far.
Disney has given us a summary of the special shows we can expect to see:
- Tune in to a musical variety show with special guests Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy at Theater of the Stars—with special appearances from Princess Tiana, Belle and more.
- Join in the fun during a spirited sing-along experience at Hyperion Theater. More details to come!
- Wrap up the festivities and enjoy the return of Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!—a seasonal nighttime spectacular that’s jam-packed with music, special effects and dazzling state-of-the-art projections.
Along with special shows, there will be holiday entertainment throughout the park:
- Be welcomed to Jollywood—with a DJ spinning a holiday mix on Hollywood Boulevard.
- Saunter over to Echo Lake for a throwback bash that’s sure to stir up nostalgia. You may even spot Powerline Max, Phineas and Ferb!
- Head down Commissary Lane and discover a holiday street fair filled with lively energy at Holiday Fiesta en la Calle. Latin holiday music fills the air as musicians play along the walkways. Warm lighting and colorful décor give the street a vibrant feel, as you sip drinks and nibble on treats inspired by Latin holiday traditions.
- Revel in a jazzy setting at a limited-capacity, Hollywood-themed lounge—located at The Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant.
- Drop in to the The Hollywood Tower Hotel courtyard for a limited-capacity, otherworldly soirée.
Disney has promoted the fact that there will definitely be a selection of specialty foods and beverages that go with the glitzy, holiday theme. These options will be available to purchase exclusively during the party. We don’t know yet if there will be any snacks included in the ticket price. If we are comparing it to other after hours events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party which happens at the Magic Kingdom, we can assume that there will be a selection of snack stations included.
Disney is encouraging everyone to wear their dapper attire to this event! This is huge! With fan events like Dapper Day being so popular, this is the first official event that Disney is hosting where they are encouraging a fancy dress code. This doesn’t mean that you are required to dress up, but when Disney asks you to dress in your finest Old Hollywood attire, don’t you want to oblige?
In their own marketing materials, Disney literally says to “dress to impress.” Be sure to follow the regular dress code found here: Disney Parks Dress Code.
