Osborne Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios! An amazing sight to see Why spend $10,000 or more on a Safari in Africa, when you can go to Disney's Animal Kingdom and spend less than half of that!
Every year thousands of people descend on Walt Disney World Florida and I am usually one of them.
Disney World happens to be one of my favorite places in the world. I have been to Walt Disney World almost EVERY year since I was in high school.
Now that I am in my 30's I still love the place. There really is something for everyone. At the Animal Kingdom park you can get up close to stunning creatures and have a great yet SAFE time doing it. I always say EVERYONE needs to experience Disney World at least once in their life.
One day I hope to be able to take a safari ride in Africa but until then I will continue my safari rides at Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom Lodge is my favorite #disney resort for a reason. An unbelievable array of millions of lights at the sadly past Osborne Family Lights. One of Disney's greatest mistakes, removing this phenom. Our #weekendgetaway was to Disney World! Although it was a typical rainy, hot, summer Florida day, we still got a lot done in this short trip! One of the best moments was on the Kilimanjaro Safari in Animal Kingdom, where we got up close and personal to some baby elephants playing in the water (we counted about four). The animals were surprisingly active, and we thought it was quite funny that the lions were just sleeping on top of rocks peacefully while it poured. Caribbean beach resort pond in the morning The Dolphin and its sister property the Swan are within the Walt Disney World property. Keep in mind these are Starwood hotels not Disney hotels so... the process for getting any reservations, park passes or things like linking your fastpass are going to be a bit of a hassle. I have been here dozens of times over the past twenty years working various conventions and that's primarily the hotels specialty. Expect to see large groups of conventioneers with name badges taking over every little space and then all disappearing at once into workshop and general session meeting rooms. As a business meeting hotel it works... going to the parks ? Not my first choice.
As to being a #StunningStructure ... I am always impressed by the giant lotus flower fountains and clamshell waterfalls that balance out the pyramid on the Dolphin. The walk from the Swan to the Dolphin gives a wonderful view. Lined with majestic royal palms and mirror lakes on either side the property's landscaping certainly keeps up with the high bar set by its neighboring Disney properties. Hey, you're on vacation. Go ahead and have the mac and cheese hot dog :) Last time for the beautiful Osborne Family lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Let them know if you're disappointed. Our annual summer trip to Disney World! Although it was a typical rainy, hot, summer Florida day, we still got a lot done in this short trip! One of the best moments was on the Kilimanjaro Safari in Animal Kingdom, where a lot of the animals were super close to our Mountains at Animal Kingdom. 🇱🇷 Just some Christmas in July. Animal Kingdom. I know zoo's aren't very popular these days but personally I enjoy Animal Kingdom and in particular the safari ride.
#disney #florida #disneyworld #safari #zoo #animal Pure adrenaline at the Lights Motor Action show. Mickey's Sorcerers Hat #disneymagic #florida #usa The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is a spectacular collection of holiday lights that one Arkansas family collected and donated to Disney World in Orlando.
The lights have been on display for 20 years every holiday season and will cease their annual celebration as of Jan. 3, 2016, so see it while you can!
The lights are in the Streets of American section of the park. Access is and are included with the regular admission to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

#colorful #thetreeoflife amazing piece of engineering and art. Great morning Don't miss the Indiana Jones stunt show, great entertainment and a nice shady spot to sit. Tip: get there a few minutes early and raise your hand for a chance to be an extra (speaking from 1st hand experience, it's lots of fun! ) I love this little discovery at Disney's Animal Kingdom. It's tucked away in one of the most bustling areas of the park. What a happy message :) Morning explorations Scaaaaary! Pool side view of a beautiful Florida day. One day I will get to see real prayer flags in Asia, until then these will have to do!
#prayerflags #asia #disney One of my favourite rides, really enjoying all the new Star Wars additions to the park too.  Disney Tip: Visit the parks mid-week for smaller crowd sizes. #LifeAtExpedia Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite places to photograph in the evening, especially when there's a beautiful sunset as the backdrop. #lifeatexpedia #waltdisneyworld #animalkingdom Riverof lights depicting river ganga and mount everest india,Asia. Lightshow. Sunrise on the lake this morning A full school of exotic baby fish. An Italian eatery within Disneyworld's Hollywood Studios that's a refreshing change from the many other cafes that pepper the theme parks. The food is served hot and fresh off the stove, cooked just for your order. This is the Penne Alla Vodka with chicken, with Red Sangria and the Mama's Margherita in the background (2nd drink not mine :P) The spectacular Christmas lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios...literally millions of lights, accompanied by music and real snow. Well worth a trip to Orlando at Christmastime. As I was shooting this pic in Animal Kingdom, I visualized I was in Africa, where lions run free! Play with Woody, Buzz and their Toy Story friends in Beautiful lobby at Animal Kingdom Lodge in Disney World. This was a must on my bucket list. Art of Animation @ Disney world. Coolest resort for all ages. 😍
Perfect pool day... no rain today, skies are beautiful. Got to love Disney Animal Kingdom.... Expedition Everest is not for the faint of heart. This is an awesome roller coaster that not only has twists, turns, and drops but also goes backwards. It also has amazing views of the greater orlando area.
