DHS Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights

So for the month of December, the family and I will be visiting most of the Holiday celebrations at the theme parks.  This past weekend, we visited Disney's Hollywood Studios and the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights

Here is a description of the lights from the Disney website;

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights on the Streets of America atDisney's Hollywood Studios theme park is a breathtaking seasonal display featuring millions of glittering lights perfectly synchronized to holiday music.
The lights are so extensive you may find it hard to comprehend their magnitude. Entire buildings are blanketed in sheets of multi-colored lights, and thousands more lights form twirling carousels, heavenly angels, and even Santa and his reindeer. Approximately every 10 minutes, the lights dim and then dramatically spring to life — dynamically choreographed to traditional holiday music. You have to see the effect to believe it!
Some nights, if you truly believe in holiday magic, the show is capped off with an enchanted flurry of snow.
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights started modestly in Arkansas as a single home's annual display. Every year, Jennings Osborne and his family set up an elaborate collection of holiday lights and over the years, the collection of lights grew, and grew... and grew! In 1995, the Osborne family decided to share their magic with the world, and Walt Disney World Resort happily offered to become the new permanent home for this exceptional exhibition of holiday cheer.
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is included with standard admission to Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.

I'll let the pictures do all of the talking for this post.....

Here is a video of the lights dancing...

and another one for you to enjoy....

And for those that love character greets, they have Santa Goofy meeting guests

This wonderful display always puts me in the Holiday Spirit.  It reminds me of the time when my children were young and we would drive around the neighborhoods looking at houses all decked out for the holidays.  The music, the "snow", the atmosphere in general is just amazing. 

Have you or your family experienced DHS Osborned Lights?  Did you enjoy it?  What is your favorite part?  Don't be shy - leave me your comments....

Next week, I'll be detailing Busch Garden's Christmas.  It's getting wonderful reviews from those that attended opening weekend so I'm really looking forward to it.
