Only a few days after Halloween, Disney’s Hollywood Studios (below, left) is nearly fully decorated for Christmas! Today was a beautiful day and we decided to take a walk around the park and see what was changed or added this year. The tree in front of the park looked beautiful against a blue sky (below, right).

This latest addition to Walt Disney Imagineering’sLiving Character Initiative, Luxo Jr. appears on an elevated platform at the Lighting building (above) in Pixar Place, across from the Toy Story Mania attraction.
Luxo Jr. entertains guests on the quarter of the hour all day (12:00, 12:15, 12:45 1:00 etc) with a three minute routine (photos above plus see full video below). We are told he does two different performances, “Medley” during the day and “Conductor” after dark featuring fiber-optic lights in the trees and along the Toy Story Mania show building.

This is not the first of WDI’s Living Character Initiative we have covered this year. Remy (below) from the Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille is now appearing at Epcot’sLes Chefs de France restaurant, fresh from his previous engagement at Rendez-Vous des Stars Restaurant in Walt Disney Studios Park, Disneyland Resort Paris (please click HERE for photos and videos of the Chef Remy character)!
The Muppet Mobile Lab appeared at Epcot a few years back and was also part of WDI’s Living Character Initiative (some great photos are HERE)!
