Disney formally announced today that the Comedy Warehouse shows will return to Disney's Hollywood Studios starting December 23 through January 3rd.
The former Pleasue Island show will be performed at the Premier Theater. Disney brought back the Comedy Warehouse shows last year for the first time to great reviews from fans and critics alike. Last year the show was performed in the ABC Sound Studio but this year will feature a much larger venue to accommodate even more guests.
Comedy Warehouse is family-friendly improvisational comedy and was a big hit before Pleasure Island closed down.
Disney announced a new initiative for 2013 called, "Limited Time Magic", where the Disney Parks will offer special events throughout the calendar year to have some extra fun. Included in the announcement is a special event at Disney's Hollywood Studios on Friday, September 13th, 2013 that will celebrate villains.
The event is being called "Unleash the Villains" and will mark this Friday the 13th by keeping Disney's Hollywood Studios open until 1am (the 13th hour, get it?) and hosting a number of Disney Villains at a dance party, complete with limited-edition merchandise collectibles guests can purchase.
The characters slated to be at the party include Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar and other villains.
More details will follow as we get closer to the event and you...

Yesterday marked the official beginning of the Christmas and New Years season in Walt Disney World and if you're brave enough to visit Hollywood Studios during this time of the year, there are some changes to be aware of so you can be best prepared.
Before you step foot in Hollywood, you will need to park your car. Most guests driving to the park take the entrance near the Boardwalk resort, which is just 2 lanes wide. If you can help it, it may make more sense to actually go off Disney World property and re-enter on World Drive so you can drive through the main entrance to the park that sports over 6 lanes.
