Sunset Seasons Greetings installation

Show installation is well underway along Sunset Blvd at Disney's Hollywood Studios as the park prepares for the debut of Sunset Seasons Greetings.

One of two video screens is already in place near to Sunset Ranch Market.

The other is nearing completion to the right of the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

Snow Storm machines line the rooftops, along with ground level mounted units near to Beauty and The Beast.

New billboards are also being added - including one that depicts Paradise Pier at Disney California Adventure.

Near to Tower of Terror, the new projection platform is nearing completion, with the projector windows now visible on the rear, facing Tower of Terror.

In front of the Tower, a number of ground based LED light fixtures are being installed.

Finally, some good old fashioned Christmas light strings are draped across the bushes near to the Beauty and the Beast entrance.

This new projection show will feature iconic characters sharing their love for the season. All the while, the Hollywood Tower Hotel—magically transforms, bringing to life the characters’ stories.

Disney character moments include:

  • Mickey and Minnie reminiscing about a hometown Christmas as the scene shifts into a romanticized, Norman Rockwell-inspired town—starting in black and white before slowly changing into color.
  • The Toy Story characters guessing which new toys are coming this Christmas as the scene becomes covered in holiday wrapping paper.
  • The Swedish Chef from The Muppets babbling as only he can while the scene turns into giant gingerbread houses.
  • And finally, Olaf pining over his holiday wish as iconic music plays and the scene freezes over into a Frozen winter wonderland—complete with dancing Aurora Borealis lights and projected falling snow.

The show will run continuously each evening from November 9 to December 31 2017, with performances from 6:30pm to 8pm.
