Best of the Osborne Lights

Believe it or not, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is almost over for 2010 so it's time to highlight the best parts of the lights this year.

The Black Cat

A fan favorite to try and find every year is the black cat light display.  The black cat in the Osborne Lights is a hidden joke among the Imagineers.  It's actually a Halloween light display that was accidently included in the lights the Osborne family sent to Walt Disney World.  Cast Members hide the cat each year and this year it was located behind the staircase near the Funeral Parlor.

Falling Snow Windows

A surprise this year were these digital windows that were added to the display.  They simulated snow falling past the windows and were an instant hit with so many who took the time to notice them.  It's yet another "how cool is that?" moment in the Osborne Lights display.

The Dancing Lights

Okay, who are we fooling? Without a doubt the dancing light effect still amazes us year after year.  It's by far the most noticable aspect of the light display and has completely transformed our perception of the lights. The Osborne Lights used to simply be an intricate light display that was really cool to look at.  Today, it's morphed into a dynamic visual show that literally stops people in their tracks.
