All-New Holiday Nighttime Spectacular Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

14 Oct

An all-new nighttime spectacular, “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!,” premieres at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Nov. 14, sending beloved Disney animated characters on a spirited yuletide adventure to get Santa back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve.

The façade of the Chinese Theater comes alive with the merriment, music and sparkle of the Walt Disney World Resort 2016 holiday season. On, above and around the theater are state-of-the-art projections, special effects, fireworks and even snow. Adding to the immersive experience is a new musical score featuring familiar holiday tunes with an original twist. It’s a holiday show that couldn’t be more merry and bright.

It’s also a cranberry-red situation for elves Wayne and Lanny from ABC/Walt Disney Animation Studios’ animated special “Prep & Landing,” as the duo leads a top-notch team on a search-and-rescue mission for Santa.

Snowy fun and holiday cheer set to the twinkling tunes of the season bring together holiday moments from Disney films including “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pluto’s Christmas Tree,” “Bambi,” – even a journey into Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” – all building to a festive finale that’s “So tinsel!”

A special message from Santa Claus will cap off this unforgettable spectacular for the whole family.

“Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” will run from Nov. 14 to Dec. 31, adding a sparkling finale to any holiday visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday | Robert’s Disney World

25 Jul

This morning, Robert created his own Disney World and Halloween Disney World out of LEGO DUPLO blocks.  He even added his Nightmare Before Christmas and Haunted Mansion toys to each Park.

I love seeing my little Imagineer create his own magic.

“A bit of magic…”

16 Oct

It’s time for another face-lift! With my recent good news and all of the special events that this wonderful month of October brings to my family, I think it’s time to douse my blog with a bit of magic… After all, we’re only 14 days from Halloween and the 13th just marked the 16th anniversary of my all-time favorite movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas. So, here we go!

Let’s see, I’ll need a little pixie dust…


…And a few words Witch Hazel stole from Shakespeare: Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble!


“What fine adventure are we off upon today?”

This day in Disney history…

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is released

T’was The Nightmare Before Christmas that debuted on this day,
and proved through the years it was now here to stay.

Morbid and funny, it did entertain,
as it unraveled tales out of Tim Burton’s brain.

Casting a spell, perhaps with a potion,
it enchanted the crowd with the art of stop motion.

When back in ’01 out at Disneyland Park,
it appeared in a ride for Guests to embark.

A classic attraction received an expansion,
when Nightmare took over the ol’ Haunted Mansion.

Each holiday time it’s sure to appear,
then the classic ride’s back at the start of the year.

In theaters again in the year of ’06,
it now was enhanced with cool 3-D tricks.

So remember this day when the film first took flight.
Happy thirteenth to all, and to all a good fright!
