It's the most wonderful time of the year...
Christmas time in Walt Disney World brings a lot of changes but without a doubt, Disney's Hollywood Studios offers the best entertainment during this busy season. The annual holiday additions we see coming to the park during the last few weeks of December are head and shoulders above what the other Walt Disney World parks have to offer and it reinforces the idea that I've always suggested, which is Disney's Hollywood Studios offers the best Christmas entertainment.
Once again this year, Disney's Hollywood Studios will bring back the Comedy Warehouse show to its park. Last year was the first year the event was shown in the Studios and it had amazing reviews. I spoke with Disney's Hollywood Studios Vice President Dan Cockerell last year about the show returning to the park and he indicated to me how much positive feedback he had recieved about it from guests and Cast Members alike.
This year's Comedy Warehouse show should be even better since it's in the Premier Theater, which will allow for much greater crowds. Frankly, I'm interested to see just how popular the shows get considering that the Premier Theater can hold so many people and even during other events such as Star Wars Weekends, it was rare to fill the entire theater. Nonetheless, if you are in Walt Disney World for Christmas week, the Comedy Warehouse shows will be a must-do.
In addition, there's another holiday tradition that is back at Disney's Hollywood Studios this year and that's the Citizens of Hollywood Holiday Glee Club show. They started this show right after Thanksgiving and it's a special show that is shown just once per day (3:30pm as of the writing of this post) where the Streetmosphere characters sing a few Christmas songs along with lots of laughs. I saw the show again this past weekend and it was as funny as ever and I recommend checking it out to see just how entertaining it is.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights that is once again dazzling guests every night and this year's show continues to be an amazing experience. The Osborne Lights are a real crowd pleaser and it's really difficult to find guests who are not in awe of what they're seeing. It's one of those rare attractions that seems to please everyone, regardless of age or gender.
If you're planning on visiting Walt Disney World before the end of the year, be sure to spend a little extra time seeking out these wonderful holiday favorites. Each is sure to be a highlight of your trip and each is a limited time offering that is worth enjoying.
