Did you know? In 1995, Walt Disney World purchased The Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights from the Jennings Osborne family in Arkansas; and brought it to Hollywood Studios. That holiday season, more than four million lights adorned Residential Street, making it the third largest attraction in the park! Since then, the show has grown to over five million lights, and Disney has enhanced the spectacle with free holographic glasses and nightly “snowfalls”!
My family has yet to enjoy this “spectacle” but we hope to do so next year! (For more on the backstory of this attraction, see Lou’s book – linked below.)
