Christmas at Disney World now includes a new show called Sunset Seasons Greetings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Christmas at Disney World New Show


This show, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, replaces the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights that remained extremely popular up to it’s cancellation.

Christmas at Disney World: The End of Osborne

Disney World announced in 2015 that the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights would end, that year. The final show was on January 6, 2016. Disney provided little to no explanation for cancelling the popular show. The 2016 Christmas season did not include a holiday show at Hollywood Studios. You can now find a VERY SIMILAR show at the Silver Dollar City theme park in Branson, MO.

Christmas at Disney: Sunset Seasons Greetings

Sunset Seasons Greetings offers Disney World guests a holiday-themed projection show on the Hollywood Tower Hotel Tower of Terror. Scenes from the Muppets, Frozen, and Toy Story illuminate Sunset Blvd and transform the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

Of course, a Disney World celebration wouldn’t be complete without a fireworks show.

Another projection show on Grauman’s Chinese Theatre features a new Prep & Landing story, Santa’s Gone Missing accompanied by fireworks.

The show continues with scenes from Mickey’s Christmas CarolBeauty and the BeastPluto’s Christmas TreeTim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. 

Similar to the Star Wars Galactic Spectacular fireworks show, you really need to be in a good spot, early to see this projection show. The fireworks can be seen from anywhere, but you kind of need to be right in front of the theatre to see the projection show. Of course, you can spend a little more for the dessert party premium and have the best spots in the park.

You can see our first experience at the new Sunset Seasons Greetings show in the video, below.

What do you think? Better than the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights?
