A great way to soak in the extra magic is by attending one of Disney’s After-Hours Christmas parties. This year, Disney announced a new event called Disney Jollywood Nights that has brought the magic of the season to Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park. While the event initially received less than exemplary reviews, many feel that Disney has improved the event and made it into something worthwhile.

Sadly, guests visiting this December evening will no longer be able to revel in this magic.

Walt Disney World Prepares for Incoming Storm

It’s not just Disney’s Hollywood Studios that will be closing because of the storm; it was previously announced that Blizzard Beach, one of Walt Disney World’s water parks, would be closing as well. 

As the weather can be unpredictable, the cancelation of events like Disney Jollywood Nights is always a possibility. However, the commitment of the Walt Disney Company to ensuring the safety and satisfaction of its guests remains unwavering. Hopefully, the storm passes quickly, and fans will be able to get back to their regularly scheduled magic.
