Are you visiting Walt Disney World over the Christmas holiday? If so, you’ve got to add a visit to the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights to your itinerary. This is absolutely my favorite holiday things at Walt Disney World. For the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to visit Walt Disney World the week of Christmas day and the lights are my Christmas Eve must do.
The light show runs from November 06, 2015 to January 03, 2016 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this year. The lights are located back in the Streets of America and usually light up around 6:00p.m. each day. There is a lighting ceremony where special guest, Santa Goofy, comes out and assists a special family each night in turning on the lights. I do suggest getting there a little early to see the lights come on for the first time that day. It’s truly jaw dropping to go from no lights to seeing millions of lights turn on in the blink of an eye. Every 10 minutes, the lights put on a show and “dance” to several different Christmas songs. It also snows on the Streets of America as the lights dance which is a really fun and adds to the whole excitement of the night. There are several street vendors in the area selling light up toys, popcorn, holiday themed beverages and other snacks. I like to go early and grab a treat to munch on before the lights come on. Because the lights are something we’ve been doing for a few years now, we’ve really started to make it our own. We bring light up toys, glow stick necklaces and anything else we can find (the dollar bin at target is great) that we think might look festive in the pictures. It’s a fun Christmas Eve tradition we’ve started that I hope continues on for many many years. If you’ve visiting Walt Disney World during the months of November or December please, please, please put visiting the lights on your must do list. I guarantee that you’ve never seen anything like it before!
