    Can you Watch fireworks at Hollywood Studios if you don’t have a Jollywood ticket?

    Hiya Virginia!

    Welcome to planDisney! I see that you might be in the Parks or arriving any second now and I am so excited for you! It's such a lovely season to visit with the lights and festivities. 

    Disney Jollywood Nights is finally here and it's getting better every night! It's exciting to see such a glamorous event happening in Disney Parks. Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! at Disney's Jollywood Nights is the festive nighttime spectacular that only occurs during this special event. If you do not have tickets for this special event you cannot enter Disney's Hollywood Studios to see it. Disney's Hollywood Studios closes on December 20, 2023, at 8 PM for regular Park guests with the official party start time at 8:30 PM. This means guests without party tickets will be kindly escorted out of the Park by 8 PM. My suggestion to see the fireworks without purchasing tickets to the party is to find your way to the pathway that connects EPCOT's International Gateway to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Just meander along till you find a nice spot and enjoy the show. You won't be able to see any projections from this distance but the fireworks will be viewable. According to the Hours & Events Calendar, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! at Disney's Hollywood Studios is set to occur at 12:30 AM.  If you time it right and be on the walkway before 9:30 PM you can see some fireworks from EPCOT's new nighttime show, Luminous The Symphony of Us as well, and then linger for a bit to see Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! What a double dose of magic! Disney's BoardWalk is a great place to station yourself as something is always going on. Consider visiting AbracadaBar which closes at midnight, for fun and merriment before leaving to see the show!

    I hope this helps and you have a fabulous time! 

    Happy Planning!
