I’m so excited to share that “Disney’s Holiday Magic Quest” is returning for a second year with “ZOMBIES” stars Milo Manheim, Kylee Russell, Meg Donnelly and Trevor Tordjman competing in a high-stakes holiday adventure featuring new epic challenges. The quest will take place inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort after dark, as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration that honors the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. Popular actress and comedian Yvette Nicole Brown will host as the stars navigate a series of new challenges and obstacles through a variety of iconic and immersive Walt Disney World attractions.
In this year’s “Disney’s Holiday Magic Quest,” Disney villain Maleficent has stolen the holiday star from atop the Holiday Tree, and its pieces have been hidden throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The ZOMBIES stars are tasked to find the missing pieces and reassemble the star to restore the magic to the theme park. With the help of their magic maps and the heroes they’ll meet along the way, the competitors will step into the stories inspired by each land, including navigating larger-than-life obstacles inside Andy’s Backyard at Toy Story Land; escaping Kylo Ren and the Stormtroopers at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, with help from Chewbacca; and surviving bellhop training inside The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
There are many additional surprise moments featured throughout “Disney’s Holiday Magic Quest,” from iconic park attractions coming to life in a whole new way, to special appearances from beloved Disney, Pixar and Star Wars characters. The two teams will be racing against the countdown clock to complete their quest before sunrise, and in honor of the winning team a donation will be made to Toys For Tots as part of the Disney Ultimate Toy Drive.
Here is an exclusive first look at images from the special:
