Disney’s NEW Jollywood Nights: Is it worth $180?

Are you looking for the ultimate guide to Disney’s Jollywood Nights at Hollywood Studios?

If so, you’re in the right place!

Walt Disney World goes all out for their holiday festivities throughout the park.

They feature over-the-top gingerbread houses in various resorts, Christmas tree trails in Disney Springs, specialty food and beverage, merchandise and so much more to ring in the holiday season at the most magical place on earth.

One of the main draws for the event is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party which takes place on select nights at Magic Kingdom.

However, many fans argue that Hollywood Studios has the superior decorations and would be the perfect spot for a holiday party.

This may stem from the nostalgia of the Osborne Spectacle of Lights that had been a special part of the park for years before leaving to make way for toy story land and Galaxy’s edge.

This year, Disney is finally taking the leap and offering a brand new holiday party and we attended the very first night!

Today, I will be chatting about everything the party offered and my experience including:

  • Entertainment
  • Themed Entertainment
  • Dining
  • Attractions
  • Tips
  • Overall Thoughts and Review

I will also let you know if Jollywood Nights is worth the money so keep reading!
