Christmas Day is almost here, but Jolly Old Saint Nick is nowhere to be found. Luckily, Wayne and Lanny, the stars of ABCs Prep & Landing, are on the job, and they won’t rest until the Big Guy’s back at the North Pole.    Tracking down Santa leads them to Halloween Town from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare before Christmas for a holiday rescue.  Can they save the day?

Featuring traditional holiday tunes, state-of-the-art projections from Disney animation classics, special effects, fireworks and even a little snow, it’s a spectacular evening celebration you won’t soon forget!

Jingle Bell Jingle Bam, new for 2016, takes place at Walt Disney World, Hollywood Studios Center Stage – right in front of the Chinese Theater.  In reality, it’s a spin on the Star Wars Galactic

Celebration Fireworks.  Meaning – the infrastructure investment for the Star Wars Galactic Celebration can be adopted to just about anything.  With some software changes, (video and lasers) along with re-packaging fireworks, the possibilities for this technology are endless.  Jingle Bell Jingle Bam! Represented the first “Holiday” example of changing the show, but… consider the possibilities.  Star Wars is obvious, but what about a “Pixar or Toy Story version to tie into the opening of Toy Story Land, or a Muppets version, or a version that ties all of the properties at Hollywood studios together.

I can’t help but think this is the longer term plan Disney had all along when they first announced that the “Sorcerers Hat” would be removed.  Congratulations Hollywood Studios, the new firework/laser/projection show is a must see and a huge win.   Here’s looking forward to the rest of Hollywood Studios re-imagination.
