Farewell to the Osborne Family Lights at DHS

A Spectacle of Dancing Lights.

A Spectacle of Dancing Lights:  The Big Light Switch.

After 20 years, Disney announced today that 2015 will be the last year to see the Osborne Family Lights at DHS. They’ll be switching off the Big Light Switch for the last time on January 3, 2016! 😦

We’re planning on seeing them on the Streets of America one last time in November.

They will be missed!

Where: Disney’s Hollywood Studios

When:  November 06, 2015 – January 03, 2016

On the Streets of America

On the Streets of America last year.

Disney statement:

This holiday season will mark the finale for The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. The display of lights has enjoyed a successful run at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, going all the way back to when it first appeared on Residential Street.

In order to prepare for some incredible experiences coming to the park, including the recently announced Toy Story Land and a Star Wars-themed land, we will not be able to present The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights in the future. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the family of Jennings Osborne for letting us share their family tradition year after year.

And thank you to all of you for being part of the spectacle with us. Here’s to making more memories in this, the 20th and final year.

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.

    I only got to see the light once, but they were absolutely magnificent! I’m so disappointed that I won’t get to see them again!

  2. This was one of the most amazing experiences I had on my honeymoon. Really glad I will get to see it for one last time this year! So sad it will be going 😦
