Seasons greetings from Hollywood Studios!
The holidays are kicking into high gear all around Disney World, so we’ve been sure to stop by the parks frequently to look for new decorations, food, and more. Come with us as we show you what’s new in Hollywood Studios!
Hollywood Studios Food Updates
There are a TON of new holiday treats available in Hollywood Studios! First up, we have a seasonal beer at BaseLine Tap House — the Sierra Nevada Celebration Fresh Hop IPA. It’s a Christmas-themed beer that’s very hoppy and has woodsy flavors that made us feel like we were in a cozy log cabin.
The Celebration Fresh Hop IPA is not on the menu at BaseLine when we were there, but it is on tap, so you just have to ask for it!
Next, a returning holiday drink is back at select locations in the park. This is the Christmas on the Beach cocktail that has Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Bols Blue Curaçao, cranberry juice, and pineapple juice served with a souvenir glow cube for $15.
This didn’t feel really festive to us, as it’s mostly just a tropical drink besides the cranberry. But, if you want to try it out for yourself, you can get it at Oasis Canteen, Animation Arch Bar, and Sunshine Day Bar.
Another odd holiday cocktail also popped up in Hollywood Studios this week. The Holiday Bliss has Vanilla Vodka, Sour Apple Pucker, Caramel Beverage Syrup, and Vanilla Ice Cream Mix. It’s also got two raspberries to garnish and a peppermint rim. While this cocktail definitely looks more on theme for the holidays, the flavors weren’t our favorite.
There’s a lot of competing flavors here that don’t really go together. However, if you like sweet drinks with unique combinations of flavors, you can get the Holiday Bliss for $14 at both the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge and Tune-In Lounge (which is attached to 50’s Prime Time Cafe).
Now for a treat! A new cannoli is now at PizzeRizzo — the Butterscotch Caramel Cannoli! This is a holiday cannoli filled with caramel cheesecake, butterscotch chips, and chocolate flakes. Plus, the edges are dipped in chocolate and then topped with sprinkles and a dusting of powdered sugar.
Our cannoli we tried didn’t have much of a crunch or a lot of flavor to it. We wish there was more of a butterscotch flavor! But, maybe you will get a better one if you try it. You can get it at PizzeRizzo for $4.99.
Another returning treat came back for the holidays this year over at several locations around Hollywood Studios! You can find the Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate and Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate with Black Cherry Bourbon at ABC Commissary, Backlot Express, Rosie’s All-American Cafe, or PizzeRizzo.
The drink is made with frozen hot chocolate mix and a salted caramel beverage syrup, and it’s topped with marshmallows and chocolate syrup for $5.49. The boozy version is the exact same but with black cherry bourbon for $13.
Over at Backlot Express and Trolley Car Café, the Red Velvet Whoopie Pie has made its return as well! It’s made with red velvet cake filled with classic cream cheese filling and festive sprinkles! You can grab one for $4.99.
This year’s Red Velvet Whoopie Pie didn’t really stack up to the Whoopie Pies of years’ past, unfortunately.
There’s also a new GIANT COOKIE in Hollywood Studios! The Santa’s Belt Cookie is a Mickey-shaped chocolate cookie that’s covered in white chocolate icing and decorations.
We’ve seen a similar cookie in the past, but this one is less expensive and is chocolate instead of vanilla! It’s available for $3.99 at ABC Commissary.
A new season also means a new Lunch Box Tart over at Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land. The Holiday Lunch Box Tart is an apple pie-filled tart frosted with cinnamon icing, a sugar snowflake, and holiday sprinkles for $4.29.
We had this tart last year for the holidays, and it’s still just as good! Apple pie lovers will be happy with this snack.
Finally, the latest new treat for the holidays we’ve seen in Hollywood Studios lately is the Reindeer Mousse! It’s made with spiced caramel cheesecake over peanut butter mousse on top of a salty pretzel shortbread cookie. YUM!
The flavors in this treat were great together, and it’s so cute! You can get it for $5.49 at Rosie’s All-American Cafe.
Hollywood Studios Merchandise Updates
A bunch of new Marvel super villain figures were released from the Legends Series in Keystone Clothiers! We found Marvel’s Arcade…

In Legends of Hollywood, we found this new Merry T-Shirt with a small Minnie in the middle. You can get it for $36.99!
Holiday Pandora Charms are also available over here now. There are rings, earrings, and festive charms in the collection!
One of the charms shows Cinderella Castle in red on one side…
…and Happy Holly Days written on the other side with the year 2021.
In the Darkroom, we found a new MagicBand features Walt Disney himself!
It also shows the state of Florida and has a blue background with plans drawn to indicate Walt’s Florida Project (Disney World).
And finally, the Star Wars ears we’ve already seen in Disneyland have made their way to Disney World!
The ears have “a long time ago” and “in a galaxy far, far away…” embroidered on the headband in the signature blue color you see at the beginning of the Star Wars movies.
