The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney Hollywood Studios – Lake Buena Vista, Florida

What started as a holiday tradition by a modest Arkansas resident has found a permanent home at Disney Hollywood Studios. This larger-than-life production features an entire block of buildings covered in sheets of multi-colored lights that flicker on every 10 minutes with an explosion of color and sound. Even more strands take the form of twirling carousels, angels, and Santa and his reindeer overhead. Holiday tunes ranging from “March of the Wooden Soldiers” to the rock-inspired “Christmas Eve in Sarajevo” boom from the loudspeakers. For more info, click here.
