Actress and comedian Yvette Nicole Brown (“Big Shot”) 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 Magic Quest, Disney villain Maleficent has stolen the holiday star from the top of the Holiday Tree, and its pieces have been hidden throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios. After dividing up into two teams, the competitors will be tasked to find the pieces, reassemble the star, and place it back atop the tree in order to restore 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 Galaxy’s Edge, with help from Chewbacca
  • Surviving Bellhop training inside The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

There will be other surprise moments featured in the TV special, from iconic attractions coming to life in a new way to special appearances from Disney, Pixar and Star Wars characters. The two teams will be challenged against the countdown clock to complete their quest before sunrise, and the winning team will receive a prize for the Toys for Tots charity.

“Disney’s Holiday Magic Quest” will premiere on Friday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. ET on Disney Channel and will be available to stream on Disney+.
