The not-to-be-missed Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights begins on Friday, and this year sees Jack Skellington join the display.

Using music from the 1993 movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas, the new lighting sequence for the 2014 display is the song - 'What's This?' Jack himself even makes an appearance in the overhead canopy.

All of your favorite dancing light sequences carry over from previous years, along with the Santa Goofy photo opportunity and snow flurries on the Streets of America.

The Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios will take place this year from November 7 2014 through to January 4 2015, and is included with park admission. The lights switch on at 6pm and continue through to park close.

Check out our preview video below of the new Nightmare Before Christmas What's This? sequence.

Go when there is EMH until 10pm. You may think, "But I'm not staying at a resort!" True, you couldn't ride rides past 8. But you're just hanging out looking at the lights.

I'll try to get some bad photos and even worse Galaxy S3 video on Sunday.

I planned on going after work tonight for some photos, but I get off at 8pm and they close at 8. Seems super early if they want to have a nighttime light show even if the sun is set by 6/630 since the time change.

SWEEEEET! Excitement took over and I started to watch the video but quickly remembered we will be there in a few weeks so I stopped watching. It will be a nice surprise to see something new for the show. I can already taste the carrot cake cookie and hot chocolate from Writers Stop that we always get before the show!!!

Just started a thread: http://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/what-do-the-resorts-do-for-christmas.892925/ I'm interested too. Going 11/29-12/3. Would be interested to know what the resorts do.

Off topic, but could you tell me if there is a Christmas resort 2014 thread set up somewhere?

Harsh...this is after all "rumors and current events". People should feel free to express their opinions and share whatever knowledge they have without being ridiculed and called "idiots".

I don't know why, but I feel that there is a shelf life to this very awesome display and every year feels like it could be the last year. Probably unwarranted, but it just has that "it's way too expensive, let's cut it" feel...

There where and are serious plans to remove the Streets of America, which will result in the Osborne Lights being displaced. It was expected to take place this year. For various reasons those plans have not yet gone through. Plans can and do change all the time, and people here can only report the latest that they know. I think your comments are unfair.

I cant wait....just love standing in the middle of the street later in the evening. Singing and dancing while snow falls and the kids say "really mom????" LOL

Last time we were at HS the first week of November they were "testing" the lights and had a couple of "soft openings" I guess you could say. No dancing. Just lights. But it was great. We will be there the first week of Nov again this year, leaving before opening date for the lights. Do they still do these surprise evenings. We just lucked into by being at HS and noticing a sign at the tip board for that nights "testing." Thanks.

You were worried (and so was I) because some idiot "experts" declared that they were finished gone done kaput. I am SO happy they were dead wrong idiots who should shut up when they don't know better.
