Osborne lights to glow away forever this year


Yes, as has been speculated here before, 2015 will be the last year for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

According to the parks blog the light show on the Streets of America must go away “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.”

“Our heartfelt thanks go out to the family of Jennings Osborne for letting us share their family tradition year after year,” said Disney in its blog post.

This will be both the 20th year of the display. It started when the Residential Street section of the backlot tour, then moved to the Streets of America when construction began for Lights, Motors, Action stunt show. Now word yet if that attraction is also slated for removal (rumur is yes).

If you really want to enjoy your last year of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, Disney is offering two special events the Merry & Bright Dessert Party (Nov. 6-Dec. 30) and the Merry & Bright Dinner Reception (Jan. 1- 3), which will overlook the dancing light display. Booking should be available soon.

Here’s a video of highlights from the 2011 season:

What do you think? Is it time for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights to go or should Disney try and transplant it yet again? If you think a transplant is in order, where would you locate it? Could be anywhere in Walt Disney World.
