We all knew that there would be some major changes with the holiday experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, thanks to the retirement of The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights last year. This year, an all-new nighttime spectacular will debut to bring in merriment to the park.
Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will premiere at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on November 14. This nighttime spectacular will feature a projection show, special effects, fireworks, and snow.
The façade of the Chinese Theater will be the main backdrop for this brand new show, which will feature an immersive experience, paired with great musical score that includes holiday classics with a twist.
The show will includes scenes from the ABC special Prep & Landing, Beauty and the Beast, Bambi, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and two of my favorites, Pluto’s Christmas Tree and Mickey’s Christmas Carol. The show will build to a very festive finale and a special message from Santa Claus.
For those who want more holiday cheer, there will be a special dessert party offered nightly. The Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday Party will feature holiday-inspired snacks, desserts, and specialty beverages. In addition, each dessert party guest will get a pair of 3D glasses to use while watching the show; the glasses will create spectacular holographic illusions of gingerbread men, candy canes, snowflakes, and ornaments on any bright point of light. The Dessert Party will occur one hour prior to each performance of Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! and costs $69 for adults (ages 10 and up) and $39 for children (ages 3-9). This price includes taxes and gratuities.
The Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! holiday spectacular will run through December 31.
