When Guests visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios, they are surely in for a day of magic from beginning to end.

You can explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and immerse yourself in Batuu, ride Rise of the Resistance, and take your pick between blue or green milk. Then, head to Toy Story Land and ride Slinky Dog Dash to your heart’s content! Afterward, Guests can enjoy Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, and crash down on Tower of Terror.

Plus, with Beauty and the Beast back, and The Indiana Jones Stunt Show Spectacular returning soon, the daytime shows are spectacular! In the evening, Guests cannot yet see Fantastmic! as the show will now return until next year, but in the interim, many have been enjoying Wonderful World of Animation and Disney Movie Magic which are two shows that play; almost back to back each night on the Chinese Theater!

Now, interestingly enough, it seems that the showtimes are no longer being represented online starting December 1. If we look at both shows, Disney has listed them as “No times available” through to January 29, which is the farthest the schedule will allow being seen at the moment. Below, you can take a look at what is displayed online for both shows.

A New Nighttime Show
This excitement-packed projection show will take you on an incredible journey through more than 90 years of Disney and Pixar animation.

Watch in wonder as the façade of the Chinese Theatre is magically transformed—displaying this stirring tribute to animation. Behold spectacular sequences celebrating themes like magic, family, adventure, romance and friendship. Each theme is brought to life through unforgettable moments from beloved films—like Sleeping Beauty, The Incredibles, Coco and many more.

Of course, since we can never lose sight of the fact that it was all started with a mouse, the show fittingly begins and ends with the one-and-only Mickey.

Disney has not announced that either show will be coming to an end, but this recognition comes after it was announced that Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! would not return this year for the Disney Parks holiday season.

Disney has listed the holiday plans for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including:

  • Sunset Seasons Greetings – Behold a captivating projection show on the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
  • Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine– Don’t miss Minnie’s merry mealtime at this popular restaurant.
  • Santa Claus Motorcade– Catch the Santa Claus Merry Motorcade, where old St. Nick will travel up Hollywood Blvd. In his candy-apple red convertible, packed with a sack of presents!
  • For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration – Look forward to an unforgettable finale featuring everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf.

Disney may be changing the times of the two shows, and we may just be awaiting the change to be made online, or perhaps this is a systematic glitch. It seems unlikely the shows would come to a sudden end without announcement, so we will stay tuned for updated showtimes!
