    Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights 2011

    The schedule has now been released. The lights will be displayed early this year once again.

    This year's display of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios will run from November 10, 2011 through January 3, 2012.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Thanks Gabe. I was wondering if the lights would be going during our trip. Are they doing it on certain nights?

    As far as I've experienced it is every night, weather permitting.

    Our touring plan for that day is a "late" start to day, swim or something and then do AK as we get through that park quicker than most. Then we scoot over and catch Osborne. That way when Osborne and Fantasmic is going on during our DHS we can quickly get on the main attractions.

    My recommendation for a viewing area of Osborne with tiny kids? Since you asked, hehehe. The whole area is part of the main show. You can see just about the whole thing from anywhere you stand and it is normally elbow to elbow. We go to the street intersection of Streets of America.
    The homes are all decked out and have some really interesting, quirky decorations here and there. On the corner you can see the main stuff and if the little guy gets antsy, he can climb stairs etc. This is often where the engineers hang out especially during the first few weeks of Osborne. We've heard some great stories.

    They loved the snow falling all over them.

    Thanks for the news HauntedGabe. Your "weather permitting" comment reminded me of a visit a few years ago. It started to rain (steady drizzle) and the lights did dance for a couple of cycles, but they quickly discontinued it. Several of the buildings went dark, from shorts, so they made the announcement canceling that evening's performance. It was back up running the next evening with no problems, though.

    Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!
