Each year the Streets Of America in Disney’s Hollywood Studios comes alive with a display of millions of Christmas lights. The event, officially called “The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights” was derived from a Christmas display originally conceived by Jennings Osborne in Arkansas. Check out the story, it’s fascinating.

The display is called “dancing lights” because about every 10 minutes Christmas music plays and the lights blink on and off, choreographed to the music. Songs include numbers from the Trans Siberian Orchestra as well as more traditional tunes like Jungle Bells.

It is hard to really take in the scope and size of the display without seeing it in person, but I will try to give you a taste of the event in photos.
