After 20 years of delighting guests, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights will be ending at the end of this year’s holiday season at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This popular event will see its final curtain call due to upcoming construction and the change of direction occurring within the park.
The event allows guests to marvel as they walk along the Streets of America, gazing up at the beautiful lights, made even more spectacular when they start to blink and dance to the musical tracks. It is a must do holiday event.
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights started modestly in Arkansas as each year, Jennings Osborne and his family set up an elaborate collection of holiday lights. Over time, the collection of lights grew until 1995, when the lights were brought to Walt Disney World Resort and have remained ever since. The lights started in the park on Residential Street, however, when Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show was introduced, the spectacle was moved over to the Streets of America.
To celebrate the seasonal event, Disney will be holding 2 special dining options for guests to experience. The first will be known as the Merry & Bright Dessert Party, where guests will be able to enjoy holiday-themed desserts while being surrounded by the incredible light display. This option will be available from November 6 through December 30.
The second option will be the Merry & Bright Dinner Reception, which will feature small bites including shrimp, beef, turkey, plus beer, wine and specialty beverages. This will be available from January 1 through January 3.
Guests will be able to book these experiences beginning on September 16 by visiting www.disneyworld.com
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights will be shown this year from November 6, 2015 through January 3, 2016.
