The Holidays at Hollywood Studios

When you step inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you step back in time to the golden age of Hollywood with its vintage glamour of the silver screen actors and actresses. The nostalgia and glitzy charm are weaved into the buildings, overall design, and special touches found everywhere.

The park has a variety of one-of-a-kind holiday decorations. As you enter and stroll down Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard, you can’t miss the shiny tinsel, colorful ornaments, and lights everywhere. Virtually everywhere in the park takes guests back to the golden era of Hollywood. You’ll see decorated Christmas trees, retro wreaths and garland, and so much more!

After Hours has been wildly successful at Hollywood Studios this year with every date selling out. We are excited to see a holiday event debut at Hollywood Studios this year!

Just like at the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios will offer a paid ticketed event that gives you access to attractions and special holiday entertainment. In addition, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will RETURN! We have not seen this favorite fireworks show since 2019!

If you have never seen Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!, it is a show jam-packed with holiday music, special effects, fireworks, and state-of-the-art projections in which the Disney’s Hollywood Studios buildings and rooftops come to life. You will find favorite scenes from “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” “Pluto’s Christmas Tree,” “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas,” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

It’s a holiday vibe like you’ve never felt before. Sights of sparkling décor, sounds of modern beats over classic holiday songs, tastes of craft cocktails and decadent dishes. It’s nostalgic and it’s glitz and glam galore. This is Disney Jollywood Nights – a new, separately ticketed event from 8:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. on 10 select nights Nov. 11-Dec. 20, 2023.

Get ready to dress in your holiday glam best or festive flair, dance the night away to merry mashups, indulge in divine treats and bubbling spirits, and snap selfies with iconic characters during this new festive event. For an extra dose of cheer, the party wraps with the return of the nighttime spectacular, “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” You’ll be in fa la la la la la la la land before you can say Tinseltown!

Disappointed. I was praying for at least a homage to Osbourne.
