It’s a Flurry of Fun for THE HOLIDAYS at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Disney’s Hollywood Studios!!!

From now through December 31st, guests can celebrate the season with a Flurry of FUN! Highlights include the return of the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday Spectacular, special seasonal touches around Echo Lake, and much more.

We’re starting that “much more” with the all-new Sunset Seasons Greetings — and all the Season’s EATINGS — on Sunset Boulevard and beyond!

Sunset Seasons Greetings

Falling snow, twinkling lights, moving billboards, and festive projections on the Hollywood Tower Hotel all make for the magical transformation of Sunset Boulevard into Sunset Seasons Greetings!

Just taking in the atmosphere is enough to make the season special. Unlike the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Spectacular which takes place at a scheduled time each evening, simply stroll onto Sunset Boulevard after the sun goes down (on this, the first night, things started around 6:15 pm). There you’re bound to catch the two-minute stories on the moving billboards, featuring festive moments with Disney characters like Mickey — I mean, Bob Cratchit! — and his family in Mickey’s Christmas Carol (one of my favorites every year!).

And so does the gang from Toy Story. (We’ll be seeing a LOT more of them in Hollywood Studios in 2018!)

They’re all introduced by Lanny and Wayne from Prep & Landing, who are also featured in Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! later in the evening.

Your eyes will lift towards the Hollywood Tower Hotel (The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror) where projections will make things a lot more festive… and much less terrorizing ;) .

By the way, you can still DROP IN on the Tower of Terror during Sunset Seasons Greetings. It’s still in operation throughout the evening.

After that? Enjoy the snowfall and the twinkling stars on Sunset Boulevard as you await the next yuletide tale on the billboards!

And remember… there are LOTS of snacks in the area to enjoy while you take in the festive atmosphere.

Echo Lake Decor

Not only is Echo Lake completely full again (coming back from its refurbishment that took place throughout early fall), it’s also THE place to see the Hollywood Studios Christmas Tree, and take in all the new extra-large ornaments dotting the lake.

    I received your e-book for the Christmas things but I never received an e-mail confirmation on the purchase so it made transferring it to my phone a little difficult.
