What to do at Disney Jollywood Nights

Kermit Ms Piggy Jollywood Nights Stage Show at Hollywood Studios

Kermit and Miss Piggy Theater of the Stars Stage Show: Muppet fans, get ready to wave your hands in the air in a very excited and wobbly manner. At the Theater of the Stars (the current home to Beauty and the Beast), you’ll get to see Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy host an all new stage show, featuring guest stars like Tiana, Belle, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse.

The Jazz Lounge at The Hollywood Brown Derby: Enjoy a sophisticated evening with plenty of glamour, as the Hollywood Brown Derby is transformed into a jazz lounge for the evening. (Capacity is limited).

Have a bash at an “other-worldly soiree” at the Hollywood Tower Hotel Courtyard: The weird “there’ll be scary ghost stories” line from The Most Wonderful Time of the Year will finally make sense as you head over toward Tower of Terror. Disney promises a soiree at the courtyard just outside the attraction, which we are sure will be equally glitzy and spooky.

Get Jolly with Sing-alongs and Dance Parties: If you want to make the most of your merriment, you can sing and dance to your heart’s content at Disney Jollywood Nights. As you enter the park, a DJ will be spinning holiday mixes, and Commissary Lane will be transformed into a lively Latin Street Fair. The Hyperion Theater will also host a sing-along.

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Nighttime Spectacular: Hollywood Studios is bringing back a festive crowd-pleaser with this show featuring fireworks, projections, lasers, and special effects. This fireworks show will only be shown during the holiday party.

Special Character Meet and Greets – Disney is promising “iconic throwback characters” will populate this Hollywood Studios holiday party. Here’s who we know will be taking a starring role:

  • Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and “the rest of the iconic gang” – Animation Courtyard
  • Powerline Max – Echo Lake
  • Phineas and Serb – Echo Lake
  • Edna Mode and Frozone – Pixar Plaza

Each of these meet and greets will feature special holiday decorations. PhotoPass downloads are included with the price of admission. Plus, there will be two new PhotoPass experiences in addition to the character meet and greets.

Go on favorite Hollywood Studios rides with a shorter wait: Disney World parties and after hours events are great if you want to go on rides with a much shorter wait time. Here are the rides that Disney has confirmed will be operating during the party.

  • Rise of the Resistance (A Virtual Queue will be running for Rise during the party)
  • Slinky Dog Dash
  • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
  • Tower of Terror
