If they do that it just won't be the same... I remember the thrill of seeing it snow in Florida, and dancing around with my family under the Lights... Other than the castle lights, if they do away with the Osbornes, there's no other special reason to go during the Christmas season.

Hey gang, Tristan here, I'm married to Breezy Osborne, the little girl all those lights were originally put up for. I know that just before Jennings (Breezy's Father) passed away June 2011 that he signed a 5 year contract (They renew every 5 years) with Disney for use of the family name with the lights. (This really doesn't mean much as it's not a contract to keep the lights on, but that contract should run until 2016)

So hopefully they will run them until then at least! I know it means the world to Breezy that the lights have run this long. And now we have a daughter, Riley, she saw the lights last year for a couple weeks but was only 6 months old we can't wait for her to see them this year at 17 months!

Thanks for all the positive things said about the lights!

I loved seeing the lights and I am glad I got to see them twice!! Hopefully they will just be relocated in the park, but honestly, WDW is not a museum!! Attractions need to come and go so the parks can stay fresh and people want to keep coming back and see whats new!

The lights seem like the perfect thing to put at AK to draw people in the evenings and not disturb the animals. I could also see them as a draw for Disney Springs(aka DD) or the Boardwalk.

Wink Winter Lights

DH and I loved the lights at Epcot. Very disappointed when they went away. Love the Osbourne lights as well, but the "dancing" part could go away any time as far as I am concerned. But I agree with posters who say that if the Osbourne lights go away from DHS, what will be he holiday draw for DHS?? Gotta have something!!!

The 2013 IAAPA convention schedule is up on their website. Under facility tours, it has this listed:
Disney’s Hollywood Studios Tour – Tuesday, November 19
Take a very special tour of Disney’s Hollywood Studio and follow the live entertainment production process from costume design to “lights out” at the end of the show. Small tour groups will visit attractions including Toy Story Midway Mania as well as the Creative Costuming department where Disney’s computer aided design process turns out thousands of costumes annually. The tour will also visit The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow and explore the making of this attraction. Finally, enjoy dinner and the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights - an awe-inspiring seasonal event featuring millions of glittering lights perfectly synchronized to holiday music. Tour includes an exclusive back-of-house experience of Spectacle of Dancing Lights, hosted by members of the creative and production staff.
If they are offering a behind the scenes tour, it seems likely that the lights will be back for this year

There have also been construction permits filed recently for the lights (which is normal around this time of year), do I have little doubt it will be back this year. Beyond this year is the question mark.

Been moved once, already

Disney has already moved the lights once--from the Backlot Residential Street, to Streets of America. It has to be such a huge draw for them. I would have a hard time imagining them walking away from that 8 weeks a year of huge crowds at The Studios. For me, it is more than a draw to The Studios. It is a huge part of what gets me to make that extra trip to WDW in early December. If this were to go away, I'd probably just come down for Food and Wine in October/November and then Flower and Garden in April/May. Maybe if they had to skip a year and then they'd be back up decorating Mos Eisley, or Route 66. We can hope they'll not be stupid about this.

I agree with you and I sure hope that the lights will remain in WDW but... If the rumored expansion is to be true, I guess Disney will build on that expansion to have people come to HS... Of course, that doesn't mean that they have to get rid of the Lights.

They actually just renewed the contract so it is coming back but that doesn't mean it won't be moved to a different place.

Because of the last few responses in here about the Osborne family, I went and looked up the history on Wikipedia. Pretty cool story!
