UPDATE FROM RICH: Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights returned to the Disney-MGM Studios Nov. 24, 2004, moved to the "Streets of America" (formerly "New York Street")

Official Disney Press Release:

Back by popular demand at Disney-MGM Studios is one of Disney's biggest holiday spectacles -- the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights. This Disney holiday tradition returns to Disney-MGM Studios bigger and better than ever before. After eight years of holiday cheer on Residential Street, Disney-MGM Studios took a short break from the tradition last year to begin construction in the area on the new "Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show" (opening 2005). Now the lights will once again brighten the Streets of America backlot inside the theme park.

Illuminating everything from trees to spinning carousels, some of Jennings Osborne's original creations include 3-D and motion-based displays, a giant holiday-light Mickey Mouse, dozens of flying angels and several giant Santa Claus light creations. Plus, "Florida snow" and other surprises are in store for guests.

The holiday light display on the theme park backlot features more than 5 million sparkling holiday bulbs designed by Osborne, an Arkansas businessman and philanthropist. The Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights display started at the Osborne home 18 years ago when Jennings strung 1,000 red lights as a Christmas gift to his daughter Breezy. Soon their 22,000-square-foot home was covered in millions of lights. By 1995, the display had made its way to the guests of Walt Disney World Resort when it made its first appearance at Disney-MGM Studios.

Dates for the sparkling spectacle are Nov. 24, 2004 through Jan. 2, 2005. Included in Disney-MGM Studios admission.

I just got this infor off of Screamscape.... I admit I haven't spent as much time online the past week or so... (teenagers monopolizing my phone line! )  anyway... here is the latest....

Park News - (4/5/04) We’ve been sent the possible new route for the Osbourn Family Lights this season. The rumored current plans are to start the route at the Sci-Fi Dine In, run along New York Street, make a left and run through the Al’s Toy Barn area, and exit up into the Muppet’s courtyard.

The more shocking point to some that there was an old route for the Osbourne Family Lights at MGM.   Have you seen "The Osbournes?"  I like the show and all, and I even consider it very functional dispite the cussing, but I doubt that it fits in Disney.

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

It was announced today that the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights will return to the Disney-MGM Studios for this year's holiday season!
:santa:

The festive lights were not able to be on display for the 2003 holiday season because of construction at the park.
