Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam
Everyone loves fireworks and everyone loves the holidays, so what could be better than holiday themed firework? Basically nothing. Walt Disney World has announced a new holiday themed light and fireworks show that will take place in Disney’s Hollywood Studios this year, and hopefully for years to come. The all-new “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” holiday spectacular comes to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort on November 14, 2016. Santa Claus is missing and the search-and-rescue mission to get The Big Guy back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve is all part of the fun. The show comes to life on, above and around the Chinese Theater with state-of-the-art projections, special effects, fireworks and a rousing seasonal musical score.
