Disney’s 2005 light spectacle will feature even more lights
Putting up those millions of lights at the annual Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights takes months to complete, even if they don’t screw those bulbs in one light at a time.
The lighting process actually begins in August, said show producer Chris Pieser, at a recent behind-the-scenes look at the dazzling display of lights held annually at the Disney-MGM Studios.
There are now so many lights in the display, which originally was part of a huge neighborhood holiday display begun by Jennings Osborne in Arkansas, that Disney officials have given up counting.
“We just say millions and millions,” said Pieser.
The lights don’t officially come on until Nov. 14. And while almost 75 percent of the light show was complete by early October, there is still plenty of behind-the-scenes work to be done, said Pieser.
