Osborne Family Dancing Spectacle Of Lights
Awesome, Amazing, Jaw-Dropping, Awe-Inspiring, & Spectacular are just a few of the words that one could use to describe the Osborne Family Dancing Spectacle Of Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
It all started in 1986 when Jennings Osborne'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.
2010 marks the 16th year that the lights have appeared at Disney's Hollywood Studios. It is a process that begins in August and runs through the end of October to get all of the lights installed. Each year the display keeps getting bigger and better with new additions to make it even more amazing.
The pictures below are amazing, but they do not do justice to walking down the Streets Of America in the middle of it all with the artificial snow falling and the music blaring just trying to take it all it. This is something that every Disney Worldd fan should strive to experience for themselves!
The 2010 version of the Osborne Family Spectacle Of Dancing Lights will appear from November 8th, 2010 - January 3rd, 2011. Viewing the Lights is free with your paid Hollywood Studios admission.
