You’ve Got To Be QUICK To Get Into the EXCLUSIVE Jazzy Holidays Club at Disney’s Jollywood Nights!

We’re at the FIRST Jollywood Nights event in Disney World, and we’re bringing you along with us to try everything out!

Jollywood Nights

There’s SO MUCH to see, do, and eat at the new Jollywood Nights holiday party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but there’s one very important thing you should probably do FIRST.

Lots of people are excited to visit the exclusive Jazzy Holidays “party within a party” that takes place during Jollywood Nights! This party features holiday music, craft cocktails, snacks, and old Hollywood vibes. But this exclusive jazz joint at the Hollywood Brown Derby is just that: EXCLUSIVE. You can’t just walk right in! So how do you get inside?

Hollywood Brown Derby

To gain access to Jazzy Holidays, you must join the mobile walk-up waitlist. Here’s how you do it. First, open up the My Disney Experience app and check availability for Jazzy Holidays (no need to visit the host stand). You can also scan a QR code located in the restaurant’s lobby to take you to this page on the app.


If there is availability, use the app to join the walk-up waitlist. You’ll need to confirm your group’s details, including how many people there will be and whether anyone has special dietary requests.

When it’s your turn to go inside, you’ll be notified via the app that you should head to a specific location! (The notification will tell you where to go). It’s virtual queue- style, so note that even after you get called for your reservation, you still might have to wait to head inside. When we were there, it was pretty crowded already, at around 8:20. Seating doesn’t begin until 8:30PM when the party officially starts, although we were able to start joining the online waitlist at 8:15PM.

Jazzy Holidays is a limited-capacity event, so you’ll want to join the waitlist sooner rather than later to make sure you get a spot before it fills up! There was actually a glitch that we experienced when we arrived. Everyone who had gotten called back for their reservation had the same “10 Minute Wait” notification to mark when they would be able to go inside, which was obviously impossible given the amount of people that were there.


We were called back and able to go inside around 8:50. Here’s a look at the inside of the restaurant.


This is where we sat…

And here’s a look at the party-exclusive menu!

For Jazzy Holidays, you can dine inside of the restaurant or outside at the lounge — which Cast Members confirmed have the same menu. We ordered the Pork Belly Bao for $12…

If you’re hoping to catch more details on the treats we try here, just follow along with us for all things happening tonight. Aside from this exclusive party, there’s a LOT to do at Jollywood Nights. Throughout the park, you will be able to experience unique music and entertainment inspired by different genres.

On Commissary Lane, for example, you can explore the Holiday Fiesta En La Calle, while Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy will host a live holiday special over at Theater of the Stars with some other Disney special guests (like Princess Tiana and Belle).


Jack Skellington himself will host a special sing-along themed to Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas at Hyperion Theater, and a DJ will spin holiday tunes on Hollywood Boulevard.
