Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights
If you will be in Central Florida this holiday season, you have an opportunity to experience one of the most fantastic holiday events not only at Disney World, but in the entire world. It is called The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and it can be found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, formerly MGM Studios. Who doesn’t enjoy looking at Christmas light displays? This event boasts not only tons, not thousands, but millions of twinkling Christmas lights. Imagine the best Christmas light decorations you have seen. Now let me tell you why this is better.
Hollywood Studios lines, no- make that covers a section of streets in colored Christmas lights. When I say “covers” I mean a blanket of lights on every surface of every building and every tree. Then the Christmas music starts and the lights begin twinkling to the beat. Each person in attendance becomes completely focused and engaged with a feeling that they are not simply watching, but more like interacting with the show. It is a real experience. This event is special for people of all ages and from all parts of the world. Floridians and people from other warm climates are enchanted by more than just the light display. It snows every night during the holiday season!
My first time seeing this spectacle, I felt like time stood still. I hardly noticed the thousands of people thronging around me. It was just me and the lights. The only thing that could have made it better would have been to have my sweetheart with me. The spirit was so joyous and magical. Strangers stop and offer to take a picture of a family so that one does not have to be left out of the photo. And by Florida standards, it can get pretty cold during the months of the event. When it’s cold, it’s even more exhilarating.
One other great thing about this event is that the regular admission ticket to Hollywood Studios gives you entrance into the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. Most special events such as the Food and Wine Festival, and Mickey’s Halloween Party require additional tickets, of course at an additional expense. So you can spend the whole day enjoying all the rides and attractions of Hollywood Studios, then stay for the light display.
If you find yourself a little slow to get into the Christmas spirit, this event will help. It cured me and kept me jolly for the remainder of the year. It’s kind of amazing, when you think about what it really is- just a Christmas light display. But it’s really that good, that special. I can’t say enough about it. In an instant I was a little child again, smiling mouth agape, eyes swollen with wonder, and heart bursting with joy, love, and peace- all of the best of the Christmas season.
