Disney’s Jollywood Nights is back for 2024! The popular Hollywood Studios after hours event first debuted in 2023. It’s a fantastic way to celebrate the holidays at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. And this year will combine returning favorites with some exciting new features. Here’s what we know so far.

Jollywood Nights Shows Return

Personally, I’m most excited that the amazing shows will be back!

This includes:

  • Disney Holidays in Hollywood, which incorporates singing, dancing, and favorite characters like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Princess Tiana and more
  • What’s This? Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing-Along, which is a must for fans of the cult classic 1993 movie
  • Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!, a fireworks show with projections

New for 2024

You won’t want to miss the brand new ice skating spectacular! It will take place on Hollywood Boulevard several times during the night. Marvel at international champion skaters performing to beloved holiday music.

And while you could enjoy Holiday Fiesta en la Calle last year, this year it will be held at Animation Courtyard. Keep an eye out for Panchito and Jose Carioca from The Three Caballeros!

Character interactions will include some returning favorites from last year, like Santa Duffy, Santa Stitch, and Phineas and Ferb. But the 20+ unique character experiences will also include characters new to Jollywood Nights, such as Lotso, Bo Peep, Baloo, and King Louie from TaleSpin.

And similarly, you’ll be able to dine on some holiday goodies returning from last year as well as new culinary creations. (Last year, we shared our 5 favorite treats from Jollywood Nights here.)

More Fun

A couple of other experiences will be back for 2024:

  • Jazzy Holidays, a smooth jazz club at the Hollywood Brown Derby
  • The Twilight Soirée at the Tip Top Club, a fancy party at the Tower Courtyard
