The Holiday Season is HERE at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which means it’s time for a FLURRY of FUN!!
From now through January 6, 2019, practically the entire park will be celebrating the season! Food, fireworks, and festive decor (and MORE) have transformed Hollywood Studios into a Holiday Winter Wonderland… and that includes this year’s new addition to the park, Toy Story Land!
The event has been in soft opening for just a couple of days, so we’ve actually had a chance to take in LOTS of the sights, sounds, and tastes. But as of TODAY, it’s all official!
So get ready for The Most Wonderful Time of the Year at Hollywood Studios!
A Flurry of FOOD
Once again this year, all sorts of additional Season’s EATINGS are available throughout the park!
We took you on a Flurry of Fun food tour with reviews on Tuesday (you can see it all here!), but in case you missed it, here is a glimpse at a few of our favorites from the Flurry, with links to individual reviews below!
Your trio of creamy, chocolately, goodness is made up of Baileys and Hot Chocolate with cinnamon, Vanilla Vodka and Hot Chocolate, and Cherry Bourbon and Hot Chocolate.
The Holidays in Toy Story Land
Sure, it’s kind of like Christmas all year long in Toy Story Land, what with the colorful, larger-than-life lightbulbs strung throughout the Land no matter when you visit.
But the scene has been enhanced for the holidays with decorations reminding you that you have shrunk down to the size of a toy when you enter Toy Story Land!
And Woody, Jessie, and Buzz are ready to meet and greet guests in their new holiday costumes!
See all of Toy Story Land during the holidays here!
Decorations at Echo Lake and Beyond
Echo Lake is also getting into the spirit again this year with even more holiday decor!
And just across the way near The Hollywood Brown Derby, even more vintage decorations help set the atmosphere.
Good ol’ Gertie — of Dinosaur Gertie’s Ice Cream of Extinction — is bringing back her Santa hat for the occasion.
Tree Lighting takes place at dusk each evening.
And the view is lovely!
Sunset Seasons Greetings
Be sure to spend some time in the evening strolling along Sunset Boulevard to take in Sunset Seasons Greetings!
For the second year in a row, The Hollywood Tower of Terror Hotel is transformed every evening with projections featuring holiday scenes.
And this year, Sunset Seasons Greetings has been enhanced with more lasers to light up the merry atmosphere.
Mickey and Minnie, Toy Story pals, the Swedish Chef from The Muppets, and everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf, set the yuletide scene as the moving billboards surrounding you play their seasonal stories.
And, by way of a little Disney magic, you can enjoy snow in Florida throughout the night!
Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!
The Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! nighttime spectacular lights up the skies with festive fireworks set to holiday music and projections to cap off each night of the Flurry!
Holiday moments from Disney films are interspersed with visits from Wayne and Lanny from the Prep & Landing holiday TV special.
And if you’d like to guarantee your spot as well as enjoy a holiday-themed array of desserts, you can check out information for the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Dessert Party here.
Minnie’s Holiday Dine
Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy don their holiday finery to mix and mingle with guests enjoying a full buffet, complete with festive dishes.
Meet and Greet with Santa Claus
Want to share your Christmas wish with Santa Claus? Jolly Old Saint Nick is available for meet and greets and photos at Once Upon a Time on Sunset Boulevard through December 24th.
The photo setting is, of course, picture perfect!
And remember, since Santa will be a wee bit busy starting midnight on Christmas Eve, Santa Goofy will begin to greet guests instead from December 25th through December 31st.
