It wouldn't be a nighttime spectacular without a dessert party, and reservations for the new Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday Dessert Party are now open.

In the courtyard of The Great Movie Ride, there will be multiple food stations, featuring holiday-inspired savory dishes, sweets including the Santa Mickey chocolate cupcake with peppermint bark, and a nitrogen dessert station. Beer, wine and specialty cocktails will be available for guests over 21. Specialty non-alcoholic beverages will also be available, along with hot cocoa. A character meet and mingle will also be part of the pre-show.

Each guest will also receive a pair of 3D HoloSpex® glasses which will turn any bright lights into holiday holographic illusions such as gingerbread men and candy canes.

Check in for the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday Dessert Party will begin an hour and fifteen minutes before show time outside of The Great Movie Ride.

From November 14 through December 17, 2016, tickets can be purchased for $69 per adult or $39 for children ages 3 to 9 (tax and gratuity included). Then, as the holidays draw closer from December 18 through December 31, 2016, tickets can be purchased for $79 per adult or $45 for children ages 3 to 9 (tax and gratuity included).

I was able to go an evening at HS last night. Fantasmic was amazing, little mermaid (all effects working), and beauty and the beast made me cry as usual. The only negative on TSMM my puller thing did not work. Now about Jingle Bell show... it is a nice edition and a coverup for the lost osborne lights. You cannot see anything though, I am sure the images on building are great but between the trees and parents putting their kids on their shoulders, I could see nothing and I was pretty close. I am not big on projection shows or CGI. I would not dare pay for this desert party, I would feel cheated. It was an ok show but I will not break my back trying to see it again.

Good to hear! We didn't do half of what we wanted on our DHS day. JTA took up so much time, park closes at 7 and we checked in to the desert party just after 6. It was a great day though. You're right about the crowds! Have you done MVMCP yet? I forget if you guys were attending or not? If so the crowds will be lower at MK on that night.

Having a great time, everything is accomplished going into a DHS day. I just can't believe the crowds. So much for the first of December being the slowest time.

Please do a trip report when you return! I'd love to read it. Hope you're having a beautiful time!

We saw the show tonight and enjoyed it.

Great news for us, did not expect to get to see Star Wars GS. Super cool!

UPDATE for anyone traveling to HS soon, they just announced at the Epcot event that they'll be running both Star Wars Galactic Spectacular and Jingle Bell Jingle Bam starting Dec 16th to the 31st

I could be totally imagining this, but does anyone know if they added additional fireworks to the finale? I've only seen the show from outside the park a handful of times, but I swear there were hardly any fireworks in the finale for the first week or so and now the finale seems to have far more.

I also wish there were more regular tables at the dessert party. They were all taken before we arrived, I found a chair for my son and pulled it up to a high top. He ate with a plate in his lap. Maybe a "family section"? It was still a great time though!

Looking forward to seeing it, as we do everything at WDW! Don't know how we managed to enjoy WDW for the last 40 years and DL for 60 without the internet to tell us how lame everything is. :)

Did this show last night. It was good, not great. Wife called it a solid B. We didn't regret going since MK was closed at 7:00 for MVMCP. As others have said there was no thought given to how kids would be able to see the projections on the Chinese Theater. After a few minutes a 7 year old gets heavy. Funny thing is, if everyone sat down it would be a much more pleasant experience. We were just behind the 2 giant white towers that have lighting and snow machines on them. That was the closest I could get at 6:00pm. So if you are doing this show you may want to have someone save a spot in front of the white towers early. They block the view of some of the effects.

We did the dessert party and show December 2nd. It was a cute show. Kids enjoyed the glasses that turned the fireworks into reindeer. It was a packed house at HS that day so we appreciated the reserved seating but had same problems mentioned above re kids seeing. Would be nice if Disney would put in some bleachers or something for these parties for the kids. All and all it was a decent show and we had fun.

I agree. We did the dessert party tonight. Both of us really enjoyed both the party and the show! It was not near as bad as people here were claiming. My criticism is the same as yours, even with the "reserved viewing" my child had a hard time seeing it all. The show itself was cute and a hit with my kiddo. Especially the lasers and snow. Oh I wanted to add... the whole "omg there aren't enough fireworks'" comments, I don't get those either. It was a fine blend of the fireworks with the projections, my opinion anyway.
