Hollywood Studios Osborne Lights

Now, forget everything you've read! There's really only one reason you need to go to Disney World during the holidays. One attraction that makes it all worthwhile. One experience above all others that will make your Disney Christmas create memories that last a lifetime. That is the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights on the Streets of America at Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park!


Osborne Lights History

The spectacle that is the Osborne lights began modestly in the mid-1980s as a single family home display in Arkansas. Each year, Jennings Osborne (not Ozzy) and his family would have an annual Christmas display. In just a few years, the display grew and grew until it was too big, and too intrusive to stay in Little Rock. After a court case gained national attention in the mid 90s, Disney offered to move the display to Orlando where it resides today.

In the years since it was moved to Disney's Hollywood Studios, the display has continued to grow and has even acquired corporate sponsors like Sylvania to help make it even more spectacular! Each year the display is tweaked, and now contains over 4 Million Christmas lights. It was recently upgraded to LED displays to make it even more amazing.
