Disney’s Hollywood Studios: The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, Gaylord Palms ICE! 2010, New DVD Preview – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

It’s been a festive week, with another viewing of The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights (below left) as well as a visit to Gaylord Palms ICE! We’d seen The Osborne Lights during the cast preview, but some has changed since then and it was nice to spend a few hours there (below, right).

Looking down the street to the Christmas tree while under the canopy of lights (below, left). Reindeer guide Santa’s sleigh through the night (below, right).

New for 2010 – a snowflake effect in a number of windows (below left and right). This wasn’t operating during the cast preview last week!

Video #1 – Osborne Lights 2010 New Falling Snow In Window – The new digital effect in the windows shows snow falling at the Osborne Lights!

Returning this year, but in a new location is the nutcracker soldier with his grill (below, left) and the toy cars, plane, and picnic table (below, right).

Santa sits behind this fence in a police car (below, left). Frosty stands brightly lit in a telephone booth (below, right).

Video #2 – Osborne Lights 2010 Phineas & Ferb Extended Version – This is the Osborne Lights 2010 Phineas and Ferb extended version (with song afterwards).

These cute little pups were not there for the cast preview, but I’m glad to see them back (below, left). One has a bow on his bottom, the other a cone on his head (below, right).

The beautiful nativity scene is back, with twinkling lights behind it (below, left). Angels fly above guests (below, right).

We had a GREAT time at Gaylord Palms ICE! (below, left) The them is Twas the Night before Christmas, and the story is told in words and ice (below, right). This exhibit has 2 million pounds of ice, and it took 6 weeks for 40 artisans from China to carve it!

We were told that food dye colors the ice. Bundle up, it’s cold – 9 degrees! Parkas are provided, but I recommend heavy gloves as well as a scarf, double socks and a hat if you want to spend extra time in there. There is so much to see, like this house (below, left) and moon (below, right).

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. (below, right). Stockings were hung on the chimney with care (and remember it’s all made of ice!)  (below, right)

The children were tucked in, all snug in their beds (below, left and right) while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads.

Standing next to a snowman for a photo (below, left). A polar bear (inside the ice) is part of the Gaylord Palms Polar Bear Pursuit.

Video #3 – Gaylord Palms ICE! Incredible Ice Sculptures and Slides 2010 – Media Preview Day 11/19/10 – Yesterday we attended the media preview of ICE! Here is our video of it – you can find more info at www.gaylordpalms.com! This year, Gaylord Palms has also added an attraction called Snow! (for a separate admission fee), we haven’t seen that one yet.

This room has Santa and his reindeer – it’s magnificent! (below left and right).

There are dual slides in the next room – complete with a Christmas tree, and the boy and girl sliding down the railings (below left and right).  You can go up and down the slides as often as you want (another reason to make sure you are warm enough to handle the 9 degree temps). We did see some workers walking through in shorts and t-shirts, the cold didn’t effect them as much after 2 months of working in it!

Here I am on the slide that was open for us (below, left).  If you sit on your parka, you get a faster ride! We then walked through the tunnel with Santa (below, right).

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night” (below, left). ICE! changes every year – everything but the nativity scene, which is the one area that is colorless. It is beautiful and plays Christmas music. You may want a little time to enjoy this area!
