The Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights: A Tribute

Over the past few years we have lost many attractions to current massive overhaul of Hollywood Studios.

A Tribute To: Symphony In The Stars

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is a current mixed media show presented nightly at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The show includes projections, lasers, sound and pyro (fireworks) to create a solid, if not slightly underwhelming nighttime extravaganza.
