It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas? 2024 Christmas at Walt Disney World details have been revealed!

This morning, Disney revealed some big news about the holiday season! To celebrate halfway to the holidays, Disney has announced that last year’s new holiday party, Jollywood Nights, will be returning to Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. Not just that, they also gave the dates for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom and the International Festival of the Holidays Presented by AdventHealth at EPCOT.

Muppets Jollywood Nights


Disney Jollywood Nights will make a magical return on select nights starting on Nov. 9 through Dec. 21, offering guests an evening filled with seasonal decorations, live entertainment, and a new dazzling skating spectacular.

Get your holiday glam ready, because Disney Jollywood Nights is once again rolling out the red carpet! On select nights Nov. 9 through Dec. 21, you can get holly and jolly for five festive hours from 7:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. during this limited capacity, separately ticketed event.

Get ready to gather on Hollywood Boulevard for a new dazzling skating spectacular set to your favorite holiday tunes. Several times each evening, take in the grace and skill of international champion skaters in an awe-inspiring twist on the traditional ice show.

Are rare character hugs on your holiday wish list? You’re in luck – this year’s event includes over 20 unique character experiences featuring both new and returning favorites.

Reunite with beloved characters like Phineas and Ferb, Santa Duffy and Santa Stitch, and look forward to fresh new faces such as Bo Peep, Lotso,  Baloo, and King Louie from TaleSpin. Don’t forget PhotoPass digital downloads are included in your event ticket!

In addition to meeting your favorite characters, indulging in delicious treats and shopping, the night will be packed with entertaining shows like What’s This? Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing-Along, Disney Holidays in Hollywood, and Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!

The Holiday Fiesta en la Calle will move to Animation Courtyard and there you’ll be able to spot Jose Carioca and Panchito from The Three Caballeros! Meanwhile, The Twilight Soirée at the Tip Top Club located in the Tower Courtyard will have you dancing throughout the night. Jazzy Holidays at the Hollywood Brown Derby will return – I recommend getting a reservation due to limited space. Stay tuned for more information on how to book in September.

Meanwhile, EPCOT will host the International Festival of the Holidays Presented by AdventHealth, where visitors can explore global holiday traditions, savor seasonal flavors from around the world, and enjoy heartwarming performances starting on Nov. 11 through Dec. 30.

Holidays are a global tradition – and I can’t get enough of the sights, the sounds, and the sensational flavors at the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays starting on Nov. 29 through Dec. 30! Enjoy festive traditions from around the world with amazing holiday storytellers, delicious dishes, merchandise, entertainment and more, each celebrating unique cultural traditions.

Get ready to satisfy your festive cravings at Holiday Kitchens. Located throughout the park and serving up a mouth-watering array of seasonal foods and drinks, there are delicious treats waiting for you from around the globe.

One of the highlights for me is the Candlelight Processional. Listening to a celebrity narrator tell the Christmas story, accompanied by a full orchestra and mass choir, is such a moving experience—it truly captures the magic of the holidays. Keep an eye out here for this year’s lineup of narrators.
