    Each year, the cast and crew who maintain The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights – Presented by SYLVANIA at Disney’s Hollywood Studios work to make the holiday display bigger and better.

    For 2011, the display includes several technological advances as well as tributes to Jennings Osborne, the creator of this holiday spectacle, who passed away in July.

    Something new to look for this year is the canopy of lights that hangs over part of the Streets of America. New RGB (red, blue, green) LEDs mean the canopy can now project millions of different color combinations.

    Jennings Osborne was a big Elvis Presley fan, so in tribute, the King’s “Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)” is now one of the songs that makes those five million lights dance.

    To see another tribute, watch this video from Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights show director John Phelan.

    And to think that our original plans would have had us down there right now. But then our niece decided to get married earlier last month. Wish we could have seen this.
