    We are heading to Disney World this December. For our planning purposes, will Hollywood Studios close early on the nights of their new Jollywood Nights event? If so, what time will it close?

    Hi Irene! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited you plan to visit the Walt Disney World Resort for the holiday season! There is nothing quite as magical as experiencing all the special festivities that take place during this time of year. Between Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party to the new arrival of Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios, there is always something special taking place!

    While park hours have not been released just yet for later this year, I would anticipate Hollywood Studios closing in time for this event to begin. Disney Jollywood Nights will take place on select nights throughout November and December and will run from 8:30 PM to 12:30 AM. Guests with tickets to the event can enter as early as 7 PM on these nights. My best guess is the park will close shortly before the party begins in order for regular day Guests to exit and special ticketed Guests to get ready for the start of the night. Also, there are only five nights throughout December that this event will be held, so hopefully, it will not impact your planning too much.

    While some parks are a bit more popular during this time of year, don't forget about visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. There is festive décor and holiday entertainment happening across the entire park. Walking around Discovery Island, you'll find the Merry Menagerie taking place. There are artisan-sculpted puppets of your favorite winter animals brought to life and are greeting Guests around the area. It's a unique event that you will only find here at this park.

    Irene, I hope this information helps you plan for your stay! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
