“There’s always something new at the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.”

On November 24, 1995, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights made its official premiere in Disney-MGM Studios of Walt Disney World. The show was acquired by Disney earlier that year from Arkansas businessman Jennings Osborne. Osborne’s holiday light show had modest beginnings in the 1980s, but had reached epic proportions in 1993, as his house was lit up with over three million lights. Disney was alerted to the highly popular yet contentious light display after a court case to shut down the display reached the United States Supreme Court. Disney added the display to the “Streets of America” area of the park, and continued to bring it back year after year (save for 2003, when construction prevented the lights being put into place). The display had its last lighting on January 6, 2016.
