Final year for Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Hollywood Studios

Festival of Lights, Disney

If you are a fan of Christmas lights, then we recommend you make your way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as this will be the last year to view the amazing Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. The spectacle includes MILLIONS of colorful holiday lights and its final season begins Nov 20 and runs nightly through Jan. 3.

Disney claims the reason for this being its final year is due to expansions happening which include “Star Wars” and “Toy Story” franchises. Although specifics are elusive, this would seem to spell the end for the Streets of America.

Disney World’s next larges holiday attraction, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, will begin November 22 at Magic Kingdom. The extra-ticket event runs on select nights through Dec. 18.

Festivities include the lighting of Cinderella Castle, a holiday parade, fireworks and shows, faux snowfall on Main Street plus cookies and hot cocoa.

Tickets range from $74 to $82 ($69 to $77 for ages 3-9), depending on date.  Purchase your tickets today!
