Another magical thing about visiting the Disney parks during the Christmas holidays is the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Hollywood Studios. Over 5 million lights synchronized to holiday music light up the night. There are also flying angels, twirling carousels and even Santa and his reindeer. You walk down the and are just totally amazed by so many lights. Entire buildings are blanketed in multi-colored lights.
These lights started out in Arkansas as a family’s annual display. Each year the Osborne family put up their lights and over the years an elaborate collection grew and grew. In 1995, the Osborne family decided to share their magic with the world and it has a new permanent home at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
After a dinner at the Brown Derby we went to see the lights, not knowing quite what to expect. It is so extensive that it is hard to comprehend. Then as we stood looking at the lights they started blinking off and on and holiday music filled the air. But then the best was yet to come. Here we are in our shorts and suddenly there are snow flurries. If that doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit nothing will. It was just so much fun, only at Disney.
