Disney's Hollywood Studios will debut a new nighttime holiday show on November 14 2016.

The show will use the new projectors installed for the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Show, and like its sister show, will also make use of fireworks and special effects - including snow fall.

Led by elves Wayne and Lanny, the duo from ABC/Walt Disney Animation Studios’ animated special “Prep & Landing,” the spirited yuletide adventure to the North Pole features memorable holiday moments from Disney films including “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pluto’s Christmas Tree,” “Bambi,” Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and more, all building to a festive finale that’s “So tinsel!”

As always, there will be an accompanying dessert party. The Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday Dessert Party includes reserved viewing, desserts, specialty beverages and more. Each dessert party guest will get a pair of 3D HoloSpex® glasses to use while watching the show. The glasses create spectacular holographic illusions of gingerbread men, candy canes, snowflakes and ornaments on any bright point of light.

The party costs $69 for adults, and $39 for children, including all taxes and gratuities and Reservations can be made at 407-WDW-DINE.

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will perform through December 31 in place of the Star Wars Galactic Spectacular.

I was able to go an evening at HS last night. Fantasmic was amazing, little mermaid (all effects working), and beauty and the beast made me cry as usual. The only negative on TSMM my puller thing did not work. Now about Jingle Bell show... it is a nice edition and a coverup for the lost osborne lights. You cannot see anything though, I am sure the images on building are great but between the trees and parents putting their kids on their shoulders, I could see nothing and I was pretty close. I am not big on projection shows or CGI. I would not dare pay for this desert party, I would feel cheated. It was an ok show but I will not break my back trying to see it again.

Good to hear! We didn't do half of what we wanted on our DHS day. JTA took up so much time, park closes at 7 and we checked in to the desert party just after 6. It was a great day though. You're right about the crowds! Have you done MVMCP yet? I forget if you guys were attending or not? If so the crowds will be lower at MK on that night.

Having a great time, everything is accomplished going into a DHS day. I just can't believe the crowds. So much for the first of December being the slowest time.

Please do a trip report when you return! I'd love to read it. Hope you're having a beautiful time!

We saw the show tonight and enjoyed it.

Great news for us, did not expect to get to see Star Wars GS. Super cool!

UPDATE for anyone traveling to HS soon, they just announced at the Epcot event that they'll be running both Star Wars Galactic Spectacular and Jingle Bell Jingle Bam starting Dec 16th to the 31st

I could be totally imagining this, but does anyone know if they added additional fireworks to the finale? I've only seen the show from outside the park a handful of times, but I swear there were hardly any fireworks in the finale for the first week or so and now the finale seems to have far more.

I also wish there were more regular tables at the dessert party. They were all taken before we arrived, I found a chair for my son and pulled it up to a high top. He ate with a plate in his lap. Maybe a "family section"? It was still a great time though!

Looking forward to seeing it, as we do everything at WDW! Don't know how we managed to enjoy WDW for the last 40 years and DL for 60 without the internet to tell us how lame everything is. :)

Did this show last night. It was good, not great. Wife called it a solid B. We didn't regret going since MK was closed at 7:00 for MVMCP. As others have said there was no thought given to how kids would be able to see the projections on the Chinese Theater. After a few minutes a 7 year old gets heavy. Funny thing is, if everyone sat down it would be a much more pleasant experience. We were just behind the 2 giant white towers that have lighting and snow machines on them. That was the closest I could get at 6:00pm. So if you are doing this show you may want to have someone save a spot in front of the white towers early. They block the view of some of the effects.

We did the dessert party and show December 2nd. It was a cute show. Kids enjoyed the glasses that turned the fireworks into reindeer. It was a packed house at HS that day so we appreciated the reserved seating but had same problems mentioned above re kids seeing. Would be nice if Disney would put in some bleachers or something for these parties for the kids. All and all it was a decent show and we had fun.

I agree. We did the dessert party tonight. Both of us really enjoyed both the party and the show! It was not near as bad as people here were claiming. My criticism is the same as yours, even with the "reserved viewing" my child had a hard time seeing it all. The show itself was cute and a hit with my kiddo. Especially the lasers and snow. Oh I wanted to add... the whole "omg there aren't enough fireworks'" comments, I don't get those either. It was a fine blend of the fireworks with the projections, my opinion anyway.
