Aside from having to close down so much of the park to run the fireworks when they do, Hollywood Studios has had some really great fireworks shows, and this one looks like it is no exception!

Isn't much of the park always closed down anyway? :lol: The fireworks looked great! I really like them there because it looks really cool with the Chinese Theater.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2016/01/experience-lights-motors-action-extreme-stunt-show-one-more-time-at-disneys-hollywood-studios/

As many of you know, our historic expansion at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will bring new, spectacular experiences to the park, including entire lands inspired by the blockbuster Star Wars and Toy Story films.

Recently, we shared that the park’s Star Wars-themed land will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet with new experiences that’ll include a customized secret mission on the Millennium Falcon and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts everyone in the middle of a climactic battle.

And in Toy Story Land, Andy’s backyard will come to life and the famous little green aliens from the movie will take you for a spin in their very own flying saucers. A family-friendly roller coaster will also have you riding on the back of Slinky Dog.

In order to bring our new lands to life, the first steps of the expansion will be happening soon. We wanted to let you know that Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show and nearby locations around Streets of America will be closing on April 2, 2016. The Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show attraction will continue its daily shows until the closing date.

While the new areas of the park come to life, we’ll continue bringing new things to Disney’s Hollywood Studios such as the recent opening of Star Wars Launch Bay, the nighttime spectacular “Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular” and Sunset Showcase.

Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more updates on our largest-ever expansion at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – we’ll have more information to share with you soon.

The "Earffel Tower" landmark will come down at Disney's Hollywood Studios soon, and the theme park will close several attractions April 2.

Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show; Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure; a Monsters Inc. meet-and-greet, and the Studio Catering Co. restaurant will all close as part of a makeover. The theme park – which is also slated to get a new name - is adding two new lands, one themed on Star Wars and another on Toy Story. It has recently added a couple new attractions based on the space saga, including Star Wars Launch Bay and a new fireworks show.

No date was given for the Earffel Tower removal. The structure, 130 feet tall with a 32,000-pound set of mouse ears, has been at Disney's Hollywood Studios since it opened. It does not hold water but was inspired by the working water tower in Burbank, Calif., a landmark at the Disney Studios since 1939.

The 40-minute Lights, Motors, Action! show features stunt cars performing high-speed chases and performers falling five stories. The stunts are played back on a massive video screen to demonstrate how movie chase scenes are made through film editing and camera angles.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is a giant playground that gives kids the illusion that they are the size of bugs. They can climb on a giant spider web and crawl through tunnels.

Also at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights on the Streets of America recently ended to make way for the new lands. Other closings have included the Studio Backlot Tour and American Idol Experience. The giant sorcerer's hat at the center of the park also came down last year.

Hollywood Studios has also recently added a Frozen sing-along, which replaced American Idol, and Sunset Showcase, a special event venue.

As expected. I think the show was fun watching it once, but after that I had absolutely no desire to watch it again.

I've gone pantless!

I agree. An entertaining show for one viewing, but that's about it.
