Well, the new “Toy Story” and “Star Wars” expansions to Hollywood Studios have claimed their first victims: According to the official Disney Parks Blog, this will be the last year of “The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights” as that area is going to be consumed to make way for the new additions.
According to the Disney Parks Blog:
As you plan ahead, we also wanted you to know that this holiday season will mark the finale for The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. The display of lights has enjoyed a successful run at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, going all the way back to when it first appeared on Residential Street.
In order to prepare for some incredible experiences coming to the park, including the recently announced Toy Story Land and a Star Wars-themed land, we will not be able to present The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights in the future. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the family of Jennings Osborne for letting us share their family tradition year after year. And thank you to all of you for being part of the spectacle with us. Here’s to making more memories in this, the 20th and final year.
If you can get out and see the lights at Hollywood Studios this Christmas, it’s definitely worth it.
By the time it’s all said and done, more eggs will be broken while making these new omelets. The Studio Backlot Tour closed almost exactly a year ago and the “Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show” will probably be next.
That said, we are getting “Star Wars” in return so I’m not complaining one bit. Do what you gotta Disney.
