The Osborne Family Spectacle Of Dancing Lights returns yet again to Disney's Hollywood Studios on November 10th.
The unbelievable Holiday light display will run nightly through January 4th.
Osbourne Family Tradition
Jennings Osborne and his family set up an elaborate collection of holiday lights for his home in Arkansas and over the years, the display kept getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger!
It all started in 1986 when Jenning's 6 year old daughter Breezy asked him if he would hang some Christmas lights on their house in Little Rock, Arkansas. This grew each year until in 1993 they had amassed over 3,00,000 lights in their display.
The neighbors were no longer endeared with the display and filed a law suit to make it stop. The Osborne's needed to find a new location for their now famous display.
In 1995, the Walt Disney World Resort gladly offered to become the new permanent home for this one of a kind Christmas light spectacle and the number of lights quickly grew to over 4,000,000.
Now in its 15th Christmas season at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights has continued to get bigger and better each year.
The Disney Cast Members start months ahead of time getting the display assembled in the back lot and streets of America areas of the theme park.
They use over 10 miles of rope lights in the display, have 130 angels, and use 44 snow machines to make it snow during each nightly display.
Every 10 minutes the lights become sychronized with the music to make the experience one you will not soon forget.
Free With Admission To Disney's Hollywood Studios
Each night at 6:00 pm the lights are turned on and remain on until the park closes. The area is open for all park guests to visit and stroll through. The display is free with regular park admission.
This is a MUST SEE Disney World attraction. Put it at the top of your list if you are taking an end of the year Disney World Vacation.
Although the pictures are impressive, they cannot do justice to how this display looks in person. You can't really appreciate the vastness of the display until you are standing in the middle of it, taking it all in.
