November 14 – December 30, 2016
During the 2016 holiday season, an all-new nighttime spectacular will take place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Called Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!, this show will take place on the facade of the Chinese Theater and will bring Guests merriment and holiday cheer.
About Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!
The show’s story will send beloved Disney characters on a spirited yuletide adventure to get Santa back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve. The show will feature state-of-the-art projections, special effects, fireworks and even snow. There will also be a festive musical score that features familiar holiday tunes with an original twist.
As the story goes, Christmas Day is almost here, but Jolly Old Saint Nick is gone! During the show, Guests will go on a yuletide journey to the North Pole with the elf team of Wayne and Lanny from ABC/Walt Disney Animation Studios’ animated special, “Prep & Landing” to search for a missing Santa Claus in the hopes of getting him back in time for Christmas Eve. Guests are invited to join the pair during their holiday hijinks as they encounters moments of holiday cheer. Their search culminates with an epic showdown in Halloween Town from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, as Wayne and Lanny are forced to rescue Santa—and save Christmas in the process!
Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will feature memorable holiday moments from Disney films including Mickey’s Christmas Carol, Beauty and the Beast, Pluto’s Christmas Tree, and Bambi. This show will end with a special message from Santa Claus himself!
As a reminder, last year was the final year for The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! is the main holiday offering for Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2016.
Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will run from November 14 to December 30 and will add a sparkling finale to any holiday visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
