Hollywood Studios – A Christmas Holiday Treat
The Disney Fanatic Family spent a day At Disney’s Hollywood studio to check out the new Christmas presentation Jingle Bells, Jingle Bam. Watch the video below for about a 5 minute sampling of the show.
The show went on just before park closing and it was most definitely a splendid way to end an overall great day.
The park was most certainly crowded because we picked December 5th to go and do you know what December 5th was? The opening day of the much anticipated new Star Wars Ride: Rise of the Resistance. Well, we were not lucky enough to be one of the ones that got to ride it I am sorry to say, as the lucky ones were the ones who had the foresight to book their ride wayyyyy in advance, but we did enjoy walking through and riding another ride in the new Star Wars section: Galaxy’s Edge.
It never ceases to amaze me how the Disney imagineers push the envelope of design and construction. We really felt like we were walking through the middle of a Star Wars city in outer space, especially when you walk through it at night. On a side note: If you have the Disney Plus Channel be sure to check out the series called Imagineering. It really gives you the history of the Disney Imagineers and some insights of the work they do behind the scenes.
They even have these codes for a special Star Wars alien language all over the walls that you can use your translation app on your phone to translate. It is something to keep you and your children occupied while you are waiting in line. Pretty ingenious if you ask me because the children we saw were certainly being kept entertained while waiting to get on the rides.
Of course the whole reason we went was the Christmas program and the Christmas decorations. I just love Christmas and I love Disney and when you combine the two, for me it really does create joy. I am a happier person when I am surrounded by the Disney magic.
To see the Hollywood Tower of Terror ride transformed from picture left to picture right was pretty cool.
All the decorations were pretty amazing and Disney goes all out at night with everything lit up and of course the snow machines creating snow in Florida, was a festive touch.
In the notable mention category, I need to mention our lunch at the Brown Derby, a table service restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, on the pricey side but well worth it. The menu consists of mainly seafood items but there are other choices as well. However, the one menu item that was a must order for me, was the Cobb Salad. The reason for my choice is that the Cobb Salad was invented by the owner of the Famous Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood California. A restaurant made famous as the place to be seen as all the stars from yesteryear were known to hang out there frequently. Now how could I not order it? If you choose to dine at the Brown Derby, reservations are so highly recommended that we might as well just say that they are required, and be prepared to shell out some cash as lunch for two for us was $104 not including the tip.
We had an amazing day and evening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The decorations and presentation really put us in the Christmas spirit and the new Star Wars section, Galaxy’s Edge just left us in awe of the Disney Imagination. It is great to be like a kid again, even if it is just for a day.
