Hollywood Studios update: new dance party and Jedi training opening date

Minnie's Holdiay and Dine at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios will officially open several new offerings soon.

On Tuesday, December 1, 2015 Disney’s Hollywood Studios will officially premier several new offerings.

  1.  Star Wars Launch Bay – Meet Darth Vader and Chewbacca as well as other Star Wars activities.  New snack offerings will also be available.
  2. Jedi Training Academy: Trials of the Temple – New version of this popular show will be offered.  Be sure to check out my tips for signing up your child, so they can participate!
  3. Holidays Happen Here character dance party at Center Stage – the new Disney character dance party will be held nightly from 5pm to closing daily.  It will offer special DJ mix versions of popular Christmas songs and some of your favorite Disney characters.  Some have suggested that the characters could appear in holiday costuming, but that is not confirmed.

Another Disney character Dance Party that will be known as Club Disney will begin on December 5, 2015 inside the new Sunset Showcase next to Rock n Roller Coaster.

Each of these offerings has been added to Character Locator, so you can build your touring plans around them!

Club Villain special event offering has canceled everyone’s reservation in the month of March and began offering refunds, despite strong sales.  Some are wondering if they will offer something Star Wars themed instead, but we’ll wait and see what happens.

  1. Any updated info about the Holidays Happen Here dance party regarding what characters appear? Also, do the same characters appear each night, or could you see different characters if you went to multiple nights? Thanks.
