It is getting closer and closer to Christmas, even though that is hard to believe as it is still pretty hot and humid out in the Northeast. But if you are heading to Disney for the Christmas season (which begins sometime in November in Walt Disney World), Christmas is almost here! I loved being at Walt Disney World for Thanksgiving for 2012 because I got to experience a few things which I did not get to see during the summer trips. We went to the Candlelight Processional and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. But my favorite Christmas tradition at Walt Disney World was the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.
You don’t need to buy another ticket or special pass to see the lights. They go on at a certain time each night in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (near Muppet’s 3D Vision on the Streets of America) and the lights flicker on and off in different colors to coincide with the Christmas music being played. The whole show is mesmerizing. Fake snow even comes down onto the streets of New York and melts on the ground.
If you are in Walt Disney World during this time, then I can’t think of any reason why you should not go and see the dancing lights! It got a little chilly while we watched them but we had come prepared with long pants and sweatshirts on. Snacks and souvenirs are available for purchase while you watch the lights and you can watch the spectacle for 5 minutes or for an hour or until they turn off the lights for the night. I hope to return again during this time of year one day and watch the lights again!
