A photo tour of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Walt Disney World
Written by Robert Niles
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Tuesday Park Visit: Walt Disney World does holiday lights like no one else. And the biggest holiday light display at Disney World is the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios.Tweet
So... I just had to go.
I arrived at the Studios at twilight last evening, taking the boat from Epcot Center.
The light display stands on New York Street in the park's Streets of America land. The light come on each night at 6, with a short musical interlude as the lights "dance" in synchronization with the music. After the music stops, the lights stay on in static mode, until the music begins again in about 15 minutes. (That same cycle continues until the park closes.)
Pulling back from the marquee....
Turning to the left....
Walking back up the street....
Mickey and Santa shake hands. (As I watched this, the smartass in me wondered what Trey Parker and Matt Stone could do with "Mickey versus Santa Claus.")
Turning around, the lights scold me for my unspoken sarcasm. ;-)
The light display spills over into the courtyard in front of the Lights, Motors, Action stunt show.
Hey, how'd Mickey get over here so fast?
Returning to the street, taking a longer view....
We walk off the street as carolers bid us farewell.
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights will continue each night through January 4. Check back tomorrow on Theme Park Insider for a photo report on Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom.
