The second night of Disney Jollywood Nights has come and gone, and many of the guests who attended the first night have hoped that Disney would work out all the kinks. We, along with many other guests, didn’t have the most magical night. Our group made a mistake, and Disney made a handful of errors, negatively impacting our night. Now, enough of that negative energy, I want to keep this positive. I want to talk about the two things I feel each guest should experience when they go to Disney Jollywood Nights.
Disney Holidays in Hollywood
This show was the highlight of our night. It had beautiful choreography, fantastic music, and phenomenal characters. Disney Holidays in Hollywood is an all-new stage show, and it’s inspired by vintage Hollywood TV specials with some holiday magic. The show hosts were Kermit and Miss Piggy; they were great and added fun humor to the show.
Other characters that can be seen in the show are Tiana, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Belle. These iconic characters definitely enhanced the show and had the crowd pumped. There is nothing cooler than seeing Mickey and Minnie doing full-out choreography.
When I walked away from the show, I did have some critiques regarding the length and pacing of the show. Other than those minor things I picked up on, I thought it was the best part of our night. I walked away, thinking that everyone should see this show.

What’s This? Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing-Along
Unfortunately, Ryno and I didn’t get to see the Nightmare Before Christmas Sing-Along because we had to split up to experience other party offerings. That was due to our mistake earlier in the night that set us back. Even though I didn’t get to see it in person, I was able to enjoy Craig’s recording of it.
This is a brand new show where guests can join Jack Skellington on a dreamlike adventure inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love that they used the puppet from Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It’s such an impressive puppet, so I’m glad they are putting it to use.
The show seems like such a unique experience, and I feel like everyone should experience it. I will be visiting this event again in December, and I will be making this show a priority.

Bonus – Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM
Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM is a show that used to play at the end of the park day during the holiday season. It went away for a couple of years, and now it’s back at Disney Jollywood Nights. It shows at 12:30 a.m. on party nights and closes out the event. This show has always been Craig’s favorite. If you stay for the entire party, then I highly suggest ending the night with this show. It rained for the last 45 minutes of our party, but they still showed Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM, and plenty of guests watched under umbrellas.
