Christmas at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Seasonal Shows and More!


Christmas at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is lots of fun with Jingle Bell Jingle BAM! fireworks, Sunset Seasons Greetings, and decor galore.



While holiday festivities at the studios pale in comparison to the all-out spectacles at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, the cheery decor and impressive projection shows bring seasonal spirit to this park. Look for decorations throughout the park with a huge dispaly at Echo Lake – and don’t miss the nighttime shows!

Jingle Bell Jingle BAM!

This fireworks show relies heavily on projections on the Chinese Theater – bringing to life the characters from ABC’s Prep & Landing who are looking for Kris Kringle. Modern Christmas classics like Mickey’s Christmas Carol, Beauty and the Beast, Nightmare Before Christmas and more all share scenes in the biggest holiday display at DHS.



If you just HAVE to have a great view of Jingle Bell Jingle BAM!, there’s even a dessert party you can book. It costs $79-89 per adult and $45-49 per child and you can book reservations in advance on the Walt Disney World website.

Sunset Seasons Greetings

All-new in 2017, this projection show on Sunset Boulevard relies on billboards and the Hollywood Tower Hotel as a backdrop for a magical tranformation that brings stories from Mickey and Minnie, Toy Story, The Muppets, an Frozen to life.

Meet Santa and Santa Goofy

The big man himself meets daily until Christmas Eve at Once Upon a Time, and Santa Goofy takes over his spot from December 25-31. These are classic photo ops that only come around once a year!
