Osborne Family Spectacle of
Lights Opens

350 miles of lights, 800,000 Watts of power and 5 million bulbs comprise the beauty and majesty of one of Disney’s most popular holiday events. What began as a family tradition in the mid-1980s in Little Rock, Ark., has blossomed into a new holiday tradition for many guests to the Disney-MGM Studios at Walt Disney World Resort. Set amid the “homes” of Residential Street in MGM Studios, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights wows crowds with its dazzling excess in a familiar setting. The annual holiday spectacular opens tonight with a special preview for Annual Pass holders and runs through January 5th. The spectacle is lit nightly at 6 p.m.

EPCOT Icon In For a Major Change

WESH TV2 in Orlando has reported that by February 2005, Spaceship Earth, EPCOT’s icon and centerpiece attraction will be closed for a major overhaul. Disney plans to take the ride offline for two years to create a whole new attraction called “Time Racers,” set to debut in 2007. This is no cosmetic facelift, but a complete redesign of the ride contained within the geodesic sphere that is so easily recognizable. Insiders believe that that the new ride will be a “moving theater type ride” that will be able to handle 2,400 guests per hour. Disney has declined to comment on the documents WESH uncovered, stating that they do not discuss attractions until they are formally announced. A former Imagineer, however, believes that Disney will incorporate some of the cutting-edge technology currently employed at Tokyo DisneySea. There is no information on the ride concept at this time.

Tower of Terror Update
Set to debut in January 2003, "Tower 4" (as the new version of this classic ride is called) will involve a number of new drop sequences. They will be randomized so you won't know which one you're going to experience. Also to be added are some yet to be revealed special effects. There will be no changes to the exterior of the building.
