The countdown is on! Indy, Marion, Cast Members get ready for the return of Indiana Jones attraction at Hollywood Studios

Earlier this fall, Disney made the exciting announcement that the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular would be returning to Disney’s Hollywood Studios on December 19.

The Stunt Spectacular was one of the attractions that did not reopen when the parks reopened in July 2020, following an unprecedented almost four-month closure in response to the growing coronavirus pandemic.

This week, Cast Members have been gearing up for the reopening of the stunt show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Since the middle of October, rehearsals have been taking place, and the very first performances of the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular will take place in front of audiences of Cast Members after the park closes on December 16 and December 17.

Though nothing specific has been confirmed by Disney, we expect that the Indiana Jones attraction will return to the park with modifications, as have other shows and attractions that were affected by the phased reopening procedures at Disney World. (But we’ll take that over not have the attraction available at all!)

Disney’s website gives an accurate description of the exciting and adventurous attraction, inspired by theĀ Indiana JonesĀ film franchise:

“Watch live as the daring duo dodges deadly traps, battles bad guys, leaps from tall buildings, and makes thrilling escapes straight out of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The edge-of-your-seat suspense ends with a dynamite finale!

Along the way, get an inside look at how stunts are done with demonstrations that reveal how to safely throw and take punches, fall from tall buildings, and even wield whips in the midst of complex action sequences.”

Disney World’s website has also already posted showtimes for the Stunt Spectacular, beginning on Sunday, December 19. As of the time of this publication, daily showtimes are noon, 1:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 4:45 p.m., and 6:00 p.m.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
