    It has officially been announced that Disney's Hollywood Studios would be receiving a brand new holiday nighttime spectacular; aptly named as "Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!". The show will begin on November 14th, as it will last till December 31st. From the Disney Park's Blog, they had this to say--

    Are you guys excited to see DHS get a new holiday show? Comment below!

    Prep and Landing is still a thing? The show seems neat at least.

    Sounds OK, but I would doubt it would attract SOA Holiday Light size crowds. But it is a positive move.

    So.... if you are trying to attract the SOA Holiday Lights crowd, why not put the Osbourne Lights on Hollywood Blvd. or down the main drag at DHS? Its not like they have a parade or any other event along these corridors, although I could see that having this on the route to TOT, RNR, and Fantasmic could produce a logjam. I do agree, however, worst name ever. Someone probably suggested Jingle BOOM and they got worried that people would think about a bomb. BAM is a little less jarring.:rolleyes:

    When I saw the thread title, I honestly thought it was about an Orlando radio station concert. Those usually have titles like Jingle Bash, Jingle Ball, etc.

    It looks promising. I enjoyed Star Wars so I'm
    Sure I'd enjoy this.

    I think this would be a great way to do a Halloween theme at DHS with a little more fright than MNNSHP.

    The name is hot garbage. Anything adding Nightmare to the parks is good with me. Makes me almost want to get next year's AP early, but I won't because I still hold in my heart of hearts that they are going to really feel the pressure soon and start asking us locals like they have in the past.

    I'm in a very similar position as you. I've been feeling a Disney itch lately, but I know more price cuts are coming.

    Wow, that name. I honestly can't picture any human being saying it aloud. The tourists are gonna look ridiculous.

    The cynic in me says they made this show just for the dessert party. It's more difficult to have a dessert party for the lights, when the lights take place all over the park. As much as we hate the dessert parties, I'm assuming they make bank.

    I agree! Star Wars was a great time, so I'm very excited for this. I didn't get the projections on the Castle, it was always meh to me. But I thought the DHS show really brought it all together much better.

    This looks like a nice addition. Great to see they haven't forgotten Prep & Landing. And a little Nightmare is always a good thing.

    Not feeling any excitement just from the description. This is one of those shows I will be looking at the reviews closely.

    Apparently, the name is a quote from "Prep & Landing".

    Who knew?

    Just checked times for the date I'm planning on going. This is at 6:45pm, Fantasmic is at 7:00pm (park closes at 9pm). Same thing happened with Star Wars fireworks last time I was there. Do they schedule these two so close together to discourage guests from seeing both?

    Yeah, pretty much to spread crowds.

    When they do 2 Fantasmic showings, this isn't a problem, but with only one, you've gotta pick.
