Hey Thrill Seekers,
I’m no longer asking if it’s acceptable to be talking about Christmas because there’s no question about it anymore. With both Halloween and Bonfire Night out the way Christmas is in full swing!
Earlier this week we saw Magic Kingdom transform from ‘Halloween’ to ‘Holidays’ overnight with six trailers of decorations, One 65-foot-tall iconic Christmas tree and less than seven hours to unpack and install it all.
Visitors to Hollywood Studios are now in for a holiday treat as the first sights of the best season of all have arrived at Toy Story Land as part of Flurry of Fun at HS! Complete with new holiday decor such as an oversized Hamm cookie, popcorn and cranberry garlands, green alien ornaments and antlers on Rex it’s the perfect place to re-live your childhood at Christmas time.
Toy Story Land during the holidays isn’t just about the decorations though as riders on Slinky Dog Dash will hear sleigh bells ringing and Alien Swirling Saucers will offer 2 holiday tracks and themed lighting!
as well as the transformation of Toy Story Land be sure to check out the festive shows and holiday decor such as a Winter Wonderland on Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood Tower Hotel transformed with projections and laser effects telling beloved holiday stories and every night you can experience Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!: a ‘Santa-sized spectacular jam packed with holiday music, fireworks, special effects and state of the art projections as of today (8th Nov) until the 6th Jan 2019.
