We’ll be waiting for the fireworks at Disney Studios Hollywood


The holidays have arrived! We’re excited that this winter 2021 season is filled with the return of fan favorite entertainment and holiday festivities. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, we are preparing for the return of Indiana Jones Epic stunt show! in December 2021, enjoying Minnie’s Holiday Dine, and just can’t get enough of the stunning Sunset Seasons Greetings. We are even preparing the return of Fantasmic! in 2022. With no fireworks currently available at Disney’s Hollywood studios, we were keeping our fingers crossed for the usual holiday nighttime spectacle to once again light up the skies over Disney Park. Sorry Disney fans, it looks like we’ll be waiting now.

Since Star wars: A Galactic Show hasn’t returned yet, we were hoping for Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Would bring some nighttime excitement back to Disney park this holiday season. Disney has listed the Vacation plans for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including:

  • Sunset Seasons Greetings – Watch a captivating projection show at the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
  • Minnie’s Holiday Dinner at Hollywood & Vine– Don’t miss Minnie’s happy meal at this popular restaurant.
  • Santa Claus procession– Catch the Santa Claus Merry Motorcade, where old St. Nick will be walking up Hollywood Blvd. In his apple-red convertible, packed with a bag of goodies!
  • For the first time in forever: a frozen celebration to sing – Expect an unforgettable finale featuring everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf.

The spectacular seasonal fireworks, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! however, has been omitted from this list. The holiday show last filled the night at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019, with the perfect dose of screenings, fireworks and holiday music. We particularly enjoyed living the show with the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Holiday dessert party which was also suspended. It is now confirmed that despite what Walt Disney World website declares, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will not return this year.

In the screenshot above you will see Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! was noted in 2020 to return in 2021. Apparently this would not be the case. @ScottGustin took to Twitter to report, “According to WDW,”… Jingle BAM is not part of our vacation entertainment lineup this year… “

Disney describes the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! holiday experience as “A larger-than-life night spectacle”:

Feel the warmth of the magic of the holidays as Disney’s Hollywood Studios transforms and surrounds you in unforgettable Disney moments. Experience the joy, excitement and music of the season as Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! takes the holiday spirit to awesome new heights! Watch in wonder as buildings and rooftops come to life and immerse yourself in beloved scenes from Mickey’s Christmas Carol, The beauty and the Beast, Pluto’s Christmas tree, Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas and more. Featuring traditional holiday tunes and stories presented by Mickey, Minnie, Olaf and their friends, state-of-the-art projections of Disney animation classics, incredible laser effects, fireworks and even a little ‘snow’, this spectacular evening is designed for a festive finale that you have to see – and hear – to believe!

The note “Please check 2021 dates and information later” still remains on the web page for now. Want to discover fireworks? Head over to Magic Kingdom for “Disney Enchantment” or EPCOT for “Harmonious”.
