New Holiday Experiences coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

It been a few years since we lost our precious Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and Disney is trying to bring modern fun to a park that lost such a classic holiday tradition for so many!

But things must change and so has Disney; and with that we introduce the 2017 at Hollywood Studios line-up for the holiday season:

NEW! Sunset Seasons Greetings – This new holiday experience features spectacular projections of Mickey, Minnie and other beloved Disney characters sharing their favorite Christmas stories as a snowy Sunset Boulevard twinkles with stunning holiday decorations. Holiday magic brings billboards to life and transforms the famous Hollywood Tower Hotel into scenes of the season – a giant pile of Christmas gifts, a gingerbread house and a frozen winter wonderland! A frosty summer-loving snowman might even make an appearance to share his holiday wish! This fantastic and heartwarming experience runs continuously throughout the night.

UPDATED: We’ve gotten another wonderful piece of concept art where the Hollywood Tower Hotel has been transformed into the Hollywood Toy Hotel:


NEW! Enhanced holiday decor around Echo Lake – Extra-large ornaments, colorful garlands and a giant Christmas tree centered on the water will make Echo Lake the merriest of places this holiday season. Even Dinosaur Gertie will be dressed for the occasion with a dino-sized Santa hat.

“Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” Returns – The show was quite a unique offering, and was a great way to end the day at the park!

Check out our video of Jingle Bell Jingle Bam from last year:

“Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” Dessert Party – Guests can wrap up their jolly holiday evenings with reserved viewing of the “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” nighttime spectacular.
