This is the last year for The Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights.
I know, I was upset too. I went this week when I found out they were having a preview because I know this year will be extra busy. It was a little hot but totally worth it.
There is a seating area that is for the special dining events happening this year. It was open since these events haven’t started yet and was a great place to sit and watch the lights!!
There is a bar kind of hidden back there with special themed drinks.
I got to see lots of hidden special items, my favorite was the Christmas Story leg lamp and the Muppets-themed balconies(take a closer look at the Christmas balls when you find this area). Make sure you walk down all the alleys and don’t forget to look up in some areas. See if you can find Tinkerbell pointing out the fact that it is the 20th year celebrating the lights.
The hidden Mickeys are everywhere. My favorite hidden Mickeys are the reflections like the one below. I love Disney details!!
Can you see the hidden Mickey in the photo below?
There are Annual Passholder ornaments and a t-shirt available.
All sorts of fun light up merchandise like these ears and light bulb necklace are available.
Once it gets cooler you will be able to enjoy hot chocolate and some items from these menus. Check out the light bulb glow cubes!
Of course, they have a themed popcorn bucket and a mug.
Passholders have a special perk this year. They are giving away free Spectacles that give the lights a special effect. You need to go to Sid Cahuenga’s(the antique shop) which is on the left as you walk in just past Guest Services. This is only available Mon and Wed after 5:30 starting November 6th. We tried to get a pair Wednesday night, but they said they didn’t have them yet.
We had such a great time. I know it is only November, but it is so magical with the Christmas music and all the snow. Plus everyone just seems happier when they are in this area. Make sure you take the time to look in all the windows and soak in the details. See if you can find the famous purple cat!
Great review! I haven’t been able get over because of football season but now that it’s finally over I’m definitely going to go! I can’t wait!
Thanks! Try and go on a weeknight if you can, the Saturdays have been super busy.
