The Spectacle at Disney's Hollywood Studios

The week before Thanksgiving, we traveled down to a favorite spot, Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.The folks at Disney had really gotten into the swing of decorating for Christmas. As a matter of fact, they were continually decorating the whole time we were there and had about decked everything out by the time we headed back home.

We arrived on Sunday afternoon. We had made plans to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios on Sunday night. We rode a few rides and when night time came, we walked around to the "Streets of America" to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. The lights were the main reason we had gone to the park that evening.

If you have ever had the opportunity to attend this awesome holiday event, you will know that there is a reason why it is called a spectacle. The lights do appear to be dancing and and it is truly nothing short of spectacular!

If you would like to read more about the lights and how the Osborne family's Christmas lights came about being at Walt Disney World, you can go to the following link: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/hollywood-studios/osborne-family-spectacle-of-dancing-lights/.

This light extravaganza  makes even the oldest of us kids stand in pure wonder and amazement. We have seen this many times and, no matter how many times we see it, it is still totally awesome to behold. Things are changed around somewhat each year. For instance, there is a cat that winds up in a different place and people try to find where it is hiding.

I do not own a fancy camera, just a pretty old and simple little "point and shoot" type. I hope to get a better camera--someday, yes, someday. These photos do not show just how wonderful the lights are, but I hope you will be able to get an idea of just how grand everything is.
How would you like to live in this pretend "apartment" and come out and just sit on these steps with your family and be dazzled by the lights every night? Imagine being able to see the lights through your upstairs bedroom window, while dozing off in your bed and having the best dreams ever!







I love has the adorable little pooch, dressed in his little Santa coat, is scratching at the door. He wants to get inside and out of the cold!
Wish I still had my girl's red wagon, because it would be great to have one of these in my front yard.





The snow (man- made) is coming down here and I tried to get a picture of it.





That cat has climbed up this tree and is near the bottom, hiding from the crowd!
I love manger scenes. Isn't this nativity scene gorgeous with the lights of blue behind it? I certainly think so.

Did you enjoy your little stroll through the "Streets of America" with all the awesome lights? Oh, how I hope so! 

It is an awe-inspiring and wonderful thing. I am so glad that Walt Disney World is carrying on Mr. Osborne's tradition with the "Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights!"

Have a blessed and beautiful Christmas season!
