A Flurry of Fun: Christmas at Hollywood Studios

Magic Kingdom and Epcot aren't the only parks that go all out for the holiday season. Hollywood Studios has its own celebration, called A Flurry of Fun.

During this amazing time of year you'll find holiday decorations, character meets, entertainment, and food and drinks.

Holiday Decor

It wouldn't be the holiday season if there wasn't a ton of festive decor everywhere. Hollywood Studios does not disappoint in this arena.

Hollywood Studios really shines in its Old Hollywood Style with the holiday decor. You'll see classic decorations and music. The parks has its 1950s vibe on point for the holidays.

Even Gertie the Dinosaur is in on the fun.

Toy Story Land is also in on the fun. You'll find Woody at the entrance wrapped up in his holiday scarf. Rex has reindeer antlers, sugar cookie Pig looks festive (and delicious).

Check out the holiday decorations going up to get an idea of the fun you'll see in Toy Story Land.


There are two great nighttime shows at Hollywood Studios during the holidays.

Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam

This show runs from November 8 - January 5, 2020 every night at Hollywood Studios.

This show includes seasonal music, projections on the Chinese Theater, and lasers.

Jingle Bell Jingle Bam

This show is a must see! It is incredibly fun, and also really popular. You'll want to get your spot early. You'll have the best view anywhere in front of the theater. You can also try to grab a spot on the main street just past the main entrance. However, viewing will be limited there.

If you are dying to see the show, but don't want to grab a spot an hour or so beforehand, you can also buy tickets to the Jingle Ball, Jingle Bam Dessert Party.

Prices vary by date, but you can expect to pay $79-$89 per adult and $45-$49 per child.

This extra party ticket will get you fun treats and drinks, and then a special VIP viewing area for the show.

Tickets can be purchased online.

Sunset Seasons Greetings

Sunset Seasons Greetings

This show is great because there is no bad view of it. You are watching projections on the Hollywood Tower of Terror Hotel

The show is about 15 minutes long, but is run throughout the night.

It starts with a video on the billboards along Sunset Boulevard, and is followed with projections on the Tower of Terror, laser effects, and "snow" on the tower.

Character Meet and Greets

Buzz Lightyear

Characters are always a fun and popular part of Disney World. But if you are at the parks during the holidays, you'll get the chance to meet characters in fun holiday attire.

At Hollywood Studios you can expect to meet:

  • Santa Claus / Sunset Boulevard
  • Santa Goofy / Grand Avenue
  • Buzz Lightyear (in holiday attire) / Toy Story Land
  • Woody and Jessie (in holiday attire) / Toy Story Land

If you want to meet characters, it's important to note that Santa has a LOT of work to do on December 24. So Santa Goofy kindly takes over meeting kids on Sunset Boulevard so that the Big Man can deliver gifts.

You'll also want to double check the My Disney Experience app for exact meet times for characters on the days you are in the parks.


If you are in it for the food (I know I am), you wont be disappointed. There are a TON of sweet holiday treats for you to enjoy:
