Disney is bringing a new entertainment line-up to Disney's Hollywood Studios for the holidays this year.

In addition to the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! projection and firework show, "Flurry of Fun" will feature new offerings including:

Sunset Seasons Greetings

This new projection show on a snowy Sunset Blvd 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.

Enhanced Decor around Echo Lake

Extra-large ornaments, colorful garlands and a giant Christmas tree centered on the water will make Echo Lake the merriest of places this holiday season. Even Dinosaur Gertie will be dressed for the occasion with a dino-Santa hat.

Additions to ‘For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.’

For a limited time all-new songs from Disney’s new animated short “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” will be added to the show, with appearances from Olaf himself.

Wow! Not as a Christmas light display, but as a love letter to Star Wars, that was great imo! Most impressive! I still mourn the loss of the Osborne lights though. We used to go as much as possible and just get lost in the beauty of it all. I like the new Christmas stuff they are doing but none of it comes close to the Osborne lights for me personally.

While very cool. I think part of the charm of the Osborne lights was its traditionalness. Which is why it lost something with the move from residential street and yet again with the conversion to LED.

For those longing for Osborne Lights, I had been critical of it for having outdated technology. Most of their lights were strings that went on and off as a string. There was only the one tunnel that had individually addressable and they were spread out rather sparsely. For an idea of what WDW could do with a Christmas light display, I give you this...

The beginning was different in how they came out and the ending was completely different with them dancing and singing a few really great holiday songs. The middle was basically the same. Of course Olaf was there and it just felt really special.

How much different is it than the normal show?

We went to it and were surprised on how much we liked it.

Finally got to see the new holiday version of the Frozen Sing along show today and everyone in my group loved it. I do wish they would have kept the part with her singing Let it Go at the very end but overall it was a lot of fun. :)

DHS looks great. Love Echo Lake, ToT layover and JBJB. A few areas that needs a little attention are down by Toy Story Mania And Muppets/Grand Avenue areas. Love the feel of the park

This show, for all their efforts, doesn't look good to me.

I thought there seemed to be decent pyro for JBJB. Not sure what people want (well, I think I know, they'd rather have all fireworks and no projections). I know some are tired of projections with fireworks but it seems like they're here to stay, this is how shows are being presented right now. HEA is very much a fireworks show as it is a projection show. And they do it well. JB/JB isn't spectacular but it's not too bad.

I thought Jingle Bam was just OK. Not enough pyro and like many of the newer shows I find myself torn between watching just the projections or just the fireworks. I think Happily Ever After is the only one so far that getting closer to striking a balance that doesn’t leave you feeling like you missed out on something.

That sign is still there for now.
