Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will return to Disney's Hollywood Studios for the 2017 holiday season according to the official Disney site.

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!”

The show makes use of the projectors and lasers installed for Star Wars A Galactic Spectacular, snow fall, rooftop fireworks around the viewing area, and large scale fireworks from behind the park.

Check out the video below for a look at the show from last year. Look for the show to return on select nights during November and December.

Yeah, we are happy about this, too. When we are going, JBJB is at 6:30 pm so a sit-down dinner would be too much of a rush for us. Now we will do Holiday Dine lunch and bring quick service food (or 8 gingerbread cupcakes that we will call "dinner") over to the fireworks viewing site.

Because a large portion of Disney fans can't get over the Osborne Lights being taken away....

Oh that's great news! Wish they would have done it last year!

Holiday Dine will be open for lunch this year, too, so they take reservations from about 11 am to park close.

If I remember correctly I think Minnie's Holiday Dine started taking reservations for 3:30 or 4pm. I would not go any later than 4. Rating the view is tough, it's roped off but there are still people in front of you... supposedly it's the "best viewing spot".. I don't know if that's true or not, but I have no desire to camp out an hour or more before a show. The crowds for the show were very large when I was there... and that was on November 28th, so not a holiday week.

We did this last year. I believe we went early December. We thought the show was enjoyable. IMO though, the dessert party was way over priced for what you got. The desserts were just so-so. Alcohol is included as well though so if you factor that in you can get a little more value. For a family of 4+ though this is pretty pricey. We were most interested in securing good seats to watch the show. The reserved seating area was also fine, but if you have kids you won't be much better off as they still won't be able to see well. When we went last year this show was 'popular' and it was busy. Overall, we will likely watch the show again this year, but we would not do the dessert party again.

Not irritated at all, just puttin in my opinion like everyone else ;)

I was just making a lighthearted joke, I didn't mean for it to be a condemnation of your outlook on life or anything of the sort. Yes, I have seen it and I did not like it. I would reccomend, if you have to see one or the other, that you go and see Fantasmic. That's all. We don't need to make a big "thing" out of it. I apologize if my small snarky joke irritates you, but if you are frustrated by this type of talk I suggest you alter your expectations for many other people on this message board, who can be ruthlessly scarcastic like no other. You should always do new things and form your own opinions, and I am very happy that you are going to see JBJB for the first time, but if you are not interested in hearing other's opinions, then this might not be a good place to go.
