After 20 years, Disney announced 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 got to see them two weeks ago on the Streets of America one last time. They will be missed!
The Osborne lights get turned on at 6pm sharp on the Streets of America at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
WOW!!! Just wow!! 🙂
Disney statement about the Dancing Lights:
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.
Where: Disney’s Hollywood Studios
When: November 06, 2015 – January 03, 2016
The light spectacle this year has been enhanced to include choreographed “dancing” lights that swirl and soar to an exhilarating medley of holiday music every 15 minutes, thanks to electronic wizardry featuring more than 400 dimmers.
Every building façade, all the trees, wreaths, bells and holiday figures dance to classic tunes while “Florida snow” flurries fall from the skies. It really is something to see!!
Marvel at millions of glittering lights perfectly synchronized to holiday music. Share in an awe-inspiring seasonal treat for the entire family. Brilliant multi-colored bulbs wrap the buildings, changing hues and brightness throughout the show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
As joyful music surrounds you, a sea of twinkling lights form twirling carousels of heavenly angels, toy soldiers, a spinning Earth, and even Santa and his trusty reindeer. It’s something you have to see to believe!
This elaborate holiday decoration display incorporates millions of LED Christmas lights, fake snow and various holiday vignettes done to familiar holiday carols and tunes. Lovely.
Seeing them in action this year: 2015 Dancing Lights

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program 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. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
