This holiday season at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, in the Walt Disney World Resort, there will be a new light show. Replacing the Osbourne Family lights, is a new show called the Sunset Seasons Greetings. It will be on Sunset Boulevard (leading toward the Tower of Terror) and will run November 9 through December 31, 2017.
When night falls, billboards will come to life and begin to move. They will “tell” holiday stories with iconic Disney characters. And the Hollywood Tower Hotel will magically transform “bringing to life the characters’ stories.”
This is the concept art of the finished show from Disney…
According to the Disney site the following character moments are included:
- Mickey and Minnie reminiscing about a hometown Christmas as the scene shifts into a romanticized, Norman Rockwell-inspired town—starting in black and white before slowly changing into color.
- The Toy Story characters guessing which new toys are coming this Christmas as the scene becomes covered in holiday wrapping paper.
- The Swedish Chef from The Muppets babbling as only he can while the scene turns into giant gingerbread houses.
- And finally, Olaf pining over his holiday wish as iconic music plays and the scene freezes over into a Frozen winter wonderland—complete with dancing Aurora Borealis lights and projected
- falling snow.
Recently, Disney has begun getting ready for the event and various Disney sites and guests have captured images of the new decor.
