Tonight we attended the media event for the "Flurry of Fun" holiday offerings at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Now I know there are those of you who will miss the Osborne Lights but I'm happy to report that thanks to the NEW holiday event at the Studios, this park is back to being one of the premiere spots to enjoy Christmas cheer at Walt Disney World! Tonight we got to check some of the highlights including:

- Sunset Seasons Greetings - This is the new show for this year which includes projections on Tower of Terror set to music and this was incredible! There are four different shows that will run throughout the night and we recommend seeing ALL of them!

- Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam! - This fireworks/projection show is BACK to updated effects and more fireworks! It's a lot of Christmas fun to help make the night even more amazing!

- Jingle Bam! Dessert Party - Want to enjoy the show with some amazing desserts and some adult hot chocolate? This is the way to do it!

Here's some photos & video from the event!

The highlight of tonight was the new Tower of Terror projection show. Here's the Toy Story and Frozen segments:

The Muppets segment was also a lot of fun and very vibrant!
tower 2.jpg
I love how they change the name of Tower of Terror and it's all done in projections!
tower 23.jpg
Here's the ending of the Frozen segment!

The projections are just so sharp and crisp that you can almost not even tell it's Tower of Terror anymore!

Who wants to unwrap Tower of Terror for Christmas?

I love that the Swedish Chef makes an appearance!

In the media preview area we got a sneak peek at what we were going to see tonight and I'm pleased to know that Chip N Dale will be featured later in the evening!

"Drunken Meatballs" is certainly a concept I could certainly get behind!

One of my all time favorite (mapping) moments, on an IAsW show, with "Tangled" in it.
Choked up, every time I saw this lantern floating up, from the King and Queen.

Disney really goes all out for media events! Glad to see Hollywood Studios seems to me like it has the least to offer of the four parks (or maybe we're just not like most enthusiasts). Toy Story Land has me excited though; love the little touches that make it look like something a kid designed.

The overlay to Tower of Terror looks pretty cool. I'm glad it isn't staying like that full-time, but as an overlay I'm on board.
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Balder, Voyage
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Shambhala
Top 5 Parks- Europa Park, Cedar Point, Disneyland, Phantasialand, Knoebels

It’s just projections and only at night. During the day it still looks like normal Tower.

I've gone pantless!

The projections look great! It's good to see the Studios park stepping up its game without the Osbourne lights.

The ole Bourbon and Hot chocolate, a Fall/Winter weekend morning staple for us Kentuckians, glad to see the delightful combination is gaining appeal outside of the bluegrass state haha.

Seems like when I think of the holiday's at WDW the studios comes to mind after EPCOT and Magic Kingdom but these seasonal offerings looks really amazing and might be worth checking out.

I'm not sure I understand why you're happy to see that Studios has the least to offer but give the park time as I'm sure that will be changing soon. This was one of those "needs to get worse before it gets better" scenarios and in two years this park should do a complete 180!
