It looks like Walt Disney World is bringing Disney Jollywood Nights for 2024, with Disney Live Entertainment hosting online auditions soon for seasonal dancers to perform in the after-hours event.

Disney Jollywood Nights was a new, after-hours ticketed event that debuted at Disney's Hollywood Studios last year. The event ran for 10 select nights, starting November 11 - December 20, 2023.

The after hours event encouraged guests to dress in holiday glam best or festive flair, while dancing the night away to merry mashups, as they indulged in divine treats and bubbling spirits.

Iconic and rare characters were available for meet and greets during the new festive event, and to end the night, the party wrapped up with the return of the nighttime spectacular, “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!”

Despite the event drawing much criticism from many guests during the early days of the event, which led to better event management, and extra characters being added to the event, the event is set to return later this year.

A Disney Casting Notice has been posted looking for seasonal dancer for Disney Jollywood Nights.

No specific dates are mentioned in the post other than November - December.
