The Disney World Attractions You Don’t Want to Miss this Holiday Season

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is getting a massive overhaul in the next few years – and for good reason – the park was once the least visited of all the Disney World properties but with a few key changes it just keeps getting better, and better. Disney has announced the addition of both a Toy Story Land and a Star Wars Land. Star Wars is already making its way into Hollywood Studios with the Star Wars Launch Bay. We met Chewbacca. It was awesome! But, to make room for all these new attractions, a few fan favorites will have to go by the wayside.



This year is the last of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. If it has been a family tradition, or you have never gone before and are in the vicinity of Orlando, I encourage you to go and see it in its 20th and last year. The 40-60 minute cycle of lights that dance to your favorite Holiday music, plus snow on the New York City streets of the backlot of Hollywood Studios is certainly spectacular. It even snows!
