Today, I want to show you some pictures of The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney Hollywood Studios. I LOVE Christmas lights, and this display does not skimp. In case you don’t know the story, this light display used to be at a private home.
Years ago, an Arkansas businessman, Jennings Osborne, started a light display at the request of his daughter. Over the years, the display grew. Mr. Osborne bought the two properties next to him and spread his display through them, too. The streets became congested as people drove through his neighborhood to see the lights. Neighbors filed a lawsuit, and the lights were ordered shut down. Then, Disney offered to bring Mr. Osborne’s light display to Disney’s Hollywood Studios (then named Disney-MGM Studios). Mr. Osborne accepted, and The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights opened at Walt Disney World in 1995.
In the pictures below, there are 3 hidden Mickey’s. Can you find them all?

I actually got to see the Osborne light display when they were still doing it in Little Rock. It was crazy! I can understand why the city asked him to stop doing it. I’m glad to know the display has been moved so that people can still enjoy it!
I was living in Arkansas at that time, too. I never made it down there to see it, but I remember all the news reports! It really is beautiful, and I can certainly understand why it got so crowded in his neighborhood.
This is something to look forward to. The kids and I have been to Disney before but we only got to watch the electrical parade. I’m sure they’d love to see the dancing lights.

The light display is amazing, I am so glad Disney picked it up so people can enjoy it.
What a great story I have not seen the light show during Christmas, but I hear it’s a must see.
Melinda Dunne says
I also love Christmas lights and would love to see that for myself.

How fun! Christmas lights are one of my favorite things about the holidays, especially decorated homes.
