All-New Holiday Nighttime Spectacular “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort

Great garland – Santa Claus is missing!

And the search-and-rescue mission to get The Big Guy back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve is all part of the fun in the all-new “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” holiday spectacular coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios November 14. The show comes to life on, above and around the Chinese Theater with state-of-the-art projections, special effects, fireworks and a rousing seasonal musical score.

New Holiday Nighttime Spectacular ‘Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam!’ Announced For Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Led by elves Wayne and Lanny, the duo from ABC/Walt Disney Animation Studios’ animated special “Prep & Landing,” the spirited yuletide adventure to the North Pole features memorable holiday moments from Disney films including “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pluto’s Christmas Tree,” “Bambi,” Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and more, all building to a festive finale that’s “So tinsel!”

And did I mention there will be snow?

A sweet way to enjoy this new holiday spectacular is with the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday Dessert Party, which includes reserved viewing, desserts, specialty beverages and more. Each dessert party guest will get a pair of 3D HoloSpex® glasses to use while watching the show. The glasses create spectacular holographic illusions of gingerbread men, candy canes, snowflakes and ornaments on any bright point of light.

Memorable, heartwarming, and enchanting for the entire family these one-of-a-kind holiday experiences will dazzle Disney’s Hollywood Studio guests through December 31.

What holiday experiences are you most looking forward to at Disney Parks?


  • We have reservations for the Dessert party on Christmas Day at 8:00 pm. How early should we arrive for check-in? We have dinner reservations at 5:50 for Christmas Dinner at Chef Mickey’s. Should I cancel this reservation?

  • I have tickets for December 11th @ 5:45pm. So that I can plan other events: 1) what time will the designated area open; 2) how long is the event (what time will it end)?

  • I was able to book for 12/12 this morning. Good luck to everyone looking for the later Dec dates!

  • Just a note. As of this posting, the event is completely sold out for every night up to Dec 10th. There is currently no bookings for after Dec 10th, so I’m out of luck.

  • Will later dates in December be released for the dessert party?

  • We are going to be at the park on Nov 14 the first dau of the show but i am seeing that is starts at 6:45 and Fantasmic is scheduled to start at 7 ? so no way to see both ?

  • How will the timing of this show work with Fantasmic? Will we be able to see both shows?

  • I was fortunate enough to book this on the Oct 14th. for Dec 3rd. I was on hold for 35 minutes, but understandably so when a new special event is offered. I noticed yesterday that it is now listed in the dining section.
    If you check the calender it shows the dates you can book. Keep checking back if you are looking for dates after 12/10.
    I like to book these special events/dessert parties because it saves me the hour or so of sitting and waiting (when we could get in another ride or show) if there are characters (like Club Villian) you can get all the pics you want (again without waiting an hour) and you get to enjoy all the delicious magical dessert creations!
    One of our family favorites (and we do this whenever we have company in from out of town) is the Wishes Dessert Party, no characters but you have excellent seats for the castle show/fireworks and you can also see the parade. Awesome if you have had your share of sitting out on the crowded curb!

  • Victoria Lim-Thank oyu for the information but can you please clarify if this show will indeed be going on from 12/11-12/17 and if the dessert party will be bookable during that time also? I have tried calling but those at the dining line don’t know if the dessert party dates will open up or if the party is ending on 12/10.
    There have not been any responses to the questions and I think clarification would be helpful.

    • Melanie,
      Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will be showing nightly during the time of your visit. Right now, the dessert party experience is offered until December 10.

  • Apparently this is running only through Dec. 10. After that, it’s not on the planning schedule. Is Star Wars going to run that week instead, due to Rogue One debuting on the 16th?

    • Lissa, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will be presented nightly starting November 14 until December 31. On New Year’s Eve, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular will also be presented. Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular will resume nightly starting January 1.
