Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney 2012

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.

The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney's great movie ride at Hollywood Studios review

The Great Movie Ride is located on Hollywood Boulevard in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. The attraction is for all ages, with no height requirements, although some of the action might be too intense for small children. It’s an indoor attraction that explores the history of movies and Tinsel Town.

The attraction begins as guests enter a life-size model of the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater. In the lobby, you’ll be able to view the actual props and costumes from famous movies.

These might include a dress from Shakespeare in Love, the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, Indiana Jones’ machete, or a carousel horse from Mary Poppins.

So just how big is Walt Disney World?

Well I hope everyone had a great New Year’s eve without getting into too much trouble! I read something the other day that made me laugh, and then made me realize just how little a lot of people know about Walt Disney World. I was reading a personal blog online, and this girl was saying that her and her husband were going to go to Disney World.

Okay, great, nothing wrong with that. But then she went on to say that they wanted to get a Disney hotel. That way, she said, they would be right there at Disney and be able to walk to all the Disney parks! Oh my, I sure hope she sees this post, because if she really goes thinking that, she’s going to be in for a big surprise.

So, just how big is Walt Disney World? Well first lets make sure your talking about Walt Disney World, not Disneyland. Disneyland is the one in California, Walt Disney World is the one in Orlando, Florida. Disneyland is much smaller than Walt Disney World, MUCH smaller! Also when you say Walt Disney World, your talking about the whole complex, not just one of the parks. [Read more…]
