Will the Exclusive Jollywood Entertainment and Food be Worth the Price?

Will the Exclusive Jollywood Entertainment and Food be Worth the Price?

We have been (not so) patiently waiting for more information regarding Jollywood Nights. Specifically, the Brown Derby Jazz Lounge and Hollywood Tower Hotel soiree caught our attention. We now have more information about these (and more)!

Jollywood Nights

Disney Jollywood Nights is a new, separately ticketed event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort from 8:30 p.m.–12:30 a.m. on select nights from November 11 through December 20, 2023.

Disney boasts that it’s a holiday vibe like you’ve never before experienced. 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.

Entertainment includes a Nightmare Before Christmas sing-along, a Kermit and Miss Piggy stage show, character meet and greets, a jazz lounge at Hollywood Brown Derby, and a Tower of Terror soiree. You will also be able to watch Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! for the first time since 2019.

Read more about the Muppet stage show and disappointing costumes for Mickey and Friends in this post. Out of all the announcements, the Brown Derby and Tower of Terror events piqued my (Monica) curiosity. And, we finally have more information!
