There’s a new Disney Christmas party in town this year, and its menu of sweets, savories and glamorous cocktails make it one of the main stars of the nighttime experience.

Jollywood Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios kicks off Saturday, Nov. 11, and runs select nights through Dec. 20. It’s a separate ticket event similar to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom.

But Jollywood Nights seems like it’s going for a more elevated affair by turning the Hollywood Brown Derby into a jazz club and hosting a Twilight Soiree in the courtyard of the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

The party’s new menus, which Disney dropped last week, also seem to be going for a swanky but still Disney-fied vibe.
