Disney’s Hollywood Studios Christmas Events
Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Nighttime Spectacular
The all-new Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! holiday spectacular will take place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios from November 14 through December 31, 2016. During the show, Guests will learn that Santa Claus is missing and there is a search-and-rescue mission to get him back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve. The show comes to life on, above and around the Chinese Theater and includes state-of-the-art projections, special effects, fireworks and a seasonal musical score.
As a reminder, The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights was retired in 2015, due to the construction and changes occurring at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to prepare for Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land.
Santa Meet & Greet
Guests will be able to meet Santa Claus in a vintage setting at the Once Upon A Time shop on Sunset Boulevard from November 14 through December 24. After that, Santa Goofy will step in for Old Saint Nick when he returns to the North Pole. Santa Goofy will meet Guests from December 25-31

TheMouseForLess Disney’s Hollywood Studios Tips
If you’ll be visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios during the very busy week between Christmas and New Years, it’s a great time to take in some of the less popular attractions like Indiana Jones, and Muppet*Vision 3D where crowds will be more manageable.
It’s a Wonderful Shop, sells Christmas decorations and is open for the holidays.
There are a variety of small holiday touches featured throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Here, “Tinsel Town” takes on a completely different kind of meaning at this theme park that celebrates the magic of movies and television. A giant Christmas tree towers over the main entrance, holiday displays capture the imagination, and colorful garlands and lights sparkle.
