    Hi Moms! I see the Jingle Bell Jam will be happening my date of arrival 1/5/19. Hollywood Studios closes at 8pm but the show is at 830pm. They will allow us to stay pass closing? Also what are the best spots to enjoy the festivities?

    Hello Ashley, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I am so happy to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort early next year. You will be able to still enjoy some of my favorite holiday shows, activities, and decorations. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is scheduled to close at 8:00 p.m. on the day you are planning to visit. This just means that the lines to all rides and attractions will be closed to guests. Anyone who is already in line at the time of closing will still have an opportunity to ride, but they will have to remain in line.

    You will be able to remain in the park to enjoy Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Santa has gone missing and your favorite characters from Prep and Landing are in search of jolly old Kris Kringle. This projection and fireworks show is not to be missed. Honestly, I have never had a bad spot to view this show. But if you are looking for the absolute best spot to view this show, I would suggest booking the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday Dessert Party. You will feast like Santa on some delicious holiday snacks and desserts while in the company of a VIP Disney Character. After you have dined, you will be escorted to a VIP viewing area where you will have the best spot in the house to view both Disney Movie Magic and Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!  You can book your reservation by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. There are only a limited number of spots to enjoy this experience. Keep in mind that scheduled entertainment is subject to change.

    Happy Holidays,
