Osborne family spectacle of dancing lights at Disney

Spotlight on Disney World in Orlando, Florida. November 9, 2012 – January 6, 2013 will feature the musical magic of the Osborne Family Spectacle of dancing Lights. Located inside Disney Hollywood Studios Theme Park, this light show has graced the park since 1995.

The synchronized holiday light spectacular takes place on the Streets of America section of the park and is free with the purchase of a park ticket to Disney Hollywood Studios.

This grand display, which is now occasionally topped off with the magic of snow in Florida, started at the Arkansas home of the Osborne family. Jennings Osborne and family started small and grew their light and music display until it was so large they knew they had to share it with more people than the small town in Arkansas. That’s when Disney World offered to help them out.

Walt Disney World Orlando holiday lights

Of all the times of the year, the Christmas Holiday season is the most fantastic for lights and fireworks at Walt Disney World in Orlando. I use to know a lot of the people who put up the Christmas lights and decorations around Disney. It was almost like a military operation! A long time before the decorations go up there is much planning and getting prepared.

Then on Thanksgiving night, crews all over the Walt Disney World resort go out all night long putting up all the holiday lights, trees, decorations and other holiday items. There are many Christmas trees that go up all over the resort. Most are fake ones, with limbs that stick into the main “trunk” of the tree. But they look real.

It’s amazing how much they do in that one night. People staying at the resort are in for a surprise when they wake up the next day to find everything decorated for Christmas. The Walt Disney World Castle has lights shined on it to give it a soft glow, and the lights change every few seconds. They make the fireworks display bigger, with more red, white and green colors for Christmas. [Read more…]
