Holiday music, millions of dancing lights, snow, and 72 hidden Mickey’s. What could it be? The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, of course!
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is literally turned on for guests Mid-November through early January, usually around 6:00 pm each evening, on the Streets of America at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This year was our third year being graced by the lights and snow.
We love being there at the moment the lights are turned on—it is really a spectacle as the name implies. Then, we walk from one end of Streets of America to the other admiring the displays and getting our picture taken by the Photopass photographers. This year, there were four photographers set up in various locations.
|Photopass Photographer #1--near the entrance to Streets of America|
|Photopass Photographer #2--at the far end of the dancing lights tunnel|
|Photopass Photographer #3--near the switch and giant tree|
|Photopass Photographer #4--At the opposite end of Streets of America|
The photographers pause during the “dancing” portions, but that is okay. Who minds waiting when surrounded by millions of dancing lights and music?
We captured video of the boy dancing along when we were waiting to have our pictures taken while the lights were dancing. Check it out:
Guest traffic is well controlled and guest can only enter the Streets of America to see the lights from the far end or near Lights, Motors, Action. So, if you are coming from anywhere else in Hollywood Studios to see the lights, know that your route may be redirected, especially of the lights are already on. We were at the far end prior to the lights being turned on so had no issues with being redirected.
A Cast Member told us there were 72 hidden Mickey’s in the light display. We found several—10 or so, but not all 72. Next time!
Experiencing The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a great way to boost your holiday spirit.
