Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights final year


Disney Parks just announced that 2015 will indeed be the final year for the incredible Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. 

The holidays are fast approaching and we know that many of you are starting to make your plans. Two more options for holiday fun at Walt Disney World Resort will soon be available to book: the Merry & Bright Dessert Party (Nov. 6-Dec. 30) and the Merry & Bright Dinner Reception (Jan. 1- 3), both overlooking The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
With the dessert party, guests will enjoy holiday-themed desserts while surrounded by the amazing light display. New for 2015 is a dinner reception Jan. 1 – 3, featuring a selection of small bites including beef, shrimp and turkey, plus wine, beer and specialty beverages. You’ll be able to book these experiences beginning Sept. 16, so check back at DisneyWorld.com around that time for full details and to reserve your spot.

As you plan ahead, we also wanted you to know that 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.

KtP – I absolutely love this light show and will truly miss experiencing it with my family each year.  Wouldn’t it be fun to use the technology in new Disney Springs in the future?

  1. The problem I see with having the lights at Disney Springs is that Disney was using this attraction to help boost park attendance in Hollywood Studios. (Which means more revenue for the park)

    Disney is already anticipating large crowds as Disney Springs reaches completion. Since that area is more of a shopping and dinning district, it would be hard for the company to try to sell it at the Springs as a hard-ticket event. (And before you say it, there is no way the company would make this a free event out of the goodness of their hearts)

    But, Disney has surprised folks in the past. Here’s to hoping this will happen. :)

  2. Disney Springs would be so nice for this!! Great idea Kenny. It would draw in big crowds and those crowds have to eat and shop somewhere. It’s a win win for Disney.

  3. Kenny that’s a great idea! I’m sad to see them go but also excited for changes coming to dhs. Disney springs would be a great place for them.
